Jane Campbell is the principal of Aeran and her culture of caring is reflected in everything that the Aeran team does.
While studying commerce and law at Melbourne University, Jane worked for an insurance company in workers' compensation.
After completing her degrees and working as a lawyer in insurance litigation, she realised that she wanted to focus on improving outcomes for injured people and their families.
Jane then spent a year in the U.S. working with a specialist compensation company.
On her return to Australia, Jane spent years successfully lobbying the Australian government to improve the tax treatment of compensation payments - to give injured people more choice and certainty.
Jane then transitioned into financial advice, undertaking training and working as a financial adviser focusing on injured people, but with broad exposure to financial planning.
Jane is now a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER®, the highest qualification available for financial advisers. To be admitted as a CFP® professional, Jane was required to pass an advanced education program, as well as meet requirements around ethics and experience.
Jane has focused on financial advice for injured people for most of the past 12 years, including as national manager for an advice business owned by one of Australia's largest financial services companies.
With the benefit this experience, Jane realised that the way that she could most help injured people was to provide fully independent financial advice with the best possible client service.
This led to the Aeran of today.
Even now, as a leader within a busy and growing financial services business, Jane makes time to contribute to the personal injury community, speaking publicly on issues affecting injured people, contributing to industry forums and engaging with Governments.
Aeran clients enjoy direct access to Jane and see her warmth and compassion reflected in their every interaction with the Aeran team.
Andrew is Aeran's Managing Director, responsible for building, managing and improving the organisational infrastructure to deliver Jane's culture of caring to our clients.
Andrew has a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the Australian Graduate School of Management, and has also undertaken financial planning studies. He won a university prize as the best strategy student in his MBA year.
Andrew's first work was in IT, culminating in a role as the Australian managing director for a global software company specialising in customer relationship management (CRM) software.
Andrew moved into the financial services industry as a management consultant, leading programs that focused on using technology to address issues with how large financial services organisations do the right thing for their customers. This included years spent developing and implementing a solution for a big four bank that monitors the activities of financial planners. This solution has been demonstrated to ASIC and is seen as leading the industry.
During his career Andrew developed an enduring interest in how process and technology can be used to improve outcomes for businesses and their customers. He learnt that technology has a special role in financial services organisations, creating time for people to do their best work and to form genuine and productive relationships with clients. As a result, Aeran's key infrastructure is superior to that of even our largest competitors.
Andrew is passionate about constantly improving Aeran's management, processes and infrastructure so that Aeran's team members are free to focus on improving outcomes for injured people and their families.
