Looking towards a year of hope and opportunity

Looking towards a year of hope and opportunity

In our first article for 2021, we asked our CEO Ryan Watson to provide his perspective on the challenges of 2020, and what Tribeca’s focus will be as we look towards the next twelve months.

COVID. Iso. Pivot. Zoom.

No-one could have imagined these words will be forever synonymous with the language of 2020. Unprecedented is another one.

Like me, I’m sure you’ve spent much time over the holiday break reflecting on a year that challenged us like no other. There were many difficult times that tested our resolve as individuals and a global community.

But out of this crisis has risen words that capture the very best of human spirit: Courage, Resilience. Hope. Gratitude.

This is what I witnessed everyday in the actions and interactions between our Tribe and clients. Through all the tough times of 2020 – from devastating bushfires to the harshest of lockdowns – the will to stay strong, stay the course and stay connected never diminished.

It’s what I’m most proud of as CEO of Tribeca.

The trust and faith our clients place in us is something we will never take for granted, and myself and the Tribe would like to thank every one of you for all the words of encouragement and support that continued to sustain our efforts last year. 

And will propel us forward in 2021.

So, as we look at approaching the next twelve months with renewed hope and optimism (also knowing in stark reality how quickly things can change), I’d like to add another word to help frame our drive and purpose – opportunity.

For Tribeca, that opportunity comes from continuing to grow and learn as a business, adding new skills and thinking to help our clients and Tribe achieve their Good Life. It’s seen us add six team members over recent months, highlighted by the appointment of Natasha (Tash) Stronach as our first General Manager, who brings innovations in strategy and technology to further enhance our operations.

For our clients, the opportunity comes from knowing that Tribeca has always got your back, and that we will continue to look for new ways to build stronger and more meaningful connections. It’s also knowing that as long as we keep  having open and honest conversations, we can face any challenge and never lose sight of your financial and life goals.

Your Good Life.

Myself and our Tribeca Tribe have never been more committed to helping you achieve that strong sense of financial wellbeing and balance, and we look forward to facing the opportunities of 2021 – together.

In 2021, Tribeca’s leadership team realised things needed to change – not just for the sake of the business but for the finance industry as a whole.

The impact of the pandemic together with an ever-increasing scrutiny on governance and qualification levels had seen a dramatic drop-off in financial advisers remaining and entering the industry.
