About Optimo Financial

Optimo Financial was founded to simplify and streamline the complex world of financial modelling.

About Optimo Financial

Optimo Financial’s principals, Hugh Bannister and Dr. Ken Stocks, began business life as mathematical modellers. For over 30 years they have used mathematical optimisation techniques to build energy and financial models and provide advisory services to a wide range of Australian and international clients including major banks, regulators and government policy advisers.

In 2009, they started to look to their own financial affairs and after learning about all the complex rules for super, tax and the pension, they realised it was another problem they could solve with optimisation. So they used their extensive experience in mathematical optimisation and long-term financial modelling to develop a financial strategy development software called Optimo Pathfinder.

The Optimo Financial team brings an innovative perspective to the challenges of financial planning with the goal of helping the industry provide Australians with affordable, high quality financial advice.
