At Collins Mann we could display an array of professional and academic qualifications that endorse our expertise; instead we prefer to demonstrate our knowledge and experience through a solid track record of successful client outcomes. Please take a moment to learn more about our team.

Mark Collins leads a busy and innovative financial planning firm, yet he insists his clients phone him direct. Cutting out the middle man, in favour of genuine and personalised service is, after all, what led him to utilise his twenty years of industry experience to launch Collins Mann Private Wealth Management with business partner Russell Mann.
Russell Mann is accustomed to taking the lead. He led a state-wide team of 50 staff when he took on a senior management role within the private banking division of one of the country’s top four banks. Responsible for providing portfolio insights and advice to some of Australia’s wealthiest professionals and corporate power players, Russell was well primed for his current leadership position.
Client Relationship Manager

Russell’s primary focus at Collins Mann is to provide initial and ongoing pro-active wealth management, investment and financial planning advice to both new and existing clients.

With over 10 year’s office management experience, Emily’s genuine commitment to customer service underpins the practice’s philosophy of professionalism, motivation, enthusiasm. It is not uncommon for Emily to go that extra mile to assist a client or a fellow team member.
I was first introduced to Russell and the team at Collins Mann in 2007 by my accountant as I needed advice and direction on how to handle my savings and lessen the Tax burden I was paying each year. I was also seeking advice on how to proceed into retirement. 7 years later I am still a client of Collins Mann.
I was told years ago: "You should get yourself some proper financial advice". It was some of the best advice I could have been given. Working fulltime in a busy professional practice had left me with too little time to do this myself. I had investments but no "plan" and had never given much thought to retirement. Collins Mann have given me "peace of mind" and confidence in a secure financial future.

I have been a client of Collins Mann for some years now and can only say that the relationship that I enjoy has been extremely rewarding. They really do “value add” to my relationships with other professional advisers with whom I deal and I have found that my best interests are always the main focus of any discussions.

I could not have bought my dream home without the expert assistance of the Collins Mann team (Mark, Belinda and Kylie). Considering my experiences with other brokers, you are the best by far. I would not have dared to do this on my own. You made the impossible possible. I highly recommend you to everyone. You make dreams come true.
Personally I have a high level of trust in your advice as I like your approach. In my view it is an appropriate balance of calculated risk versus protecting the assets that we have accumulated. I have also appreciated you referring us to other professionals (solicitor, accountant) who have also been a pleasure to deal with.
I really appreciate you guys stepping up to the plate for me at a time when my life was turned upside down. Your support over the past few months has made it so much easier and I will certainly be singing your praises as it really does make a difference to your well-being when you have others in your court to take a bit of the worry away.
