I help young families live more fulfilling lives with Financial Advice, Mortgage Broking and Wealth Coaching.


Hello, and thank you for checking out Wealthful.

I am Chris Bates, Financial Planner and Mortgage Broker based in Sydney and Melbourne.

As you explore, I hope you will note that I am not your ordinary Financial Planner or Mortgage Broker.

I've been working as a Financial Adviser for 11 years and have had the pleasure to work with1,000s of clients at all stages of life, wealth and circumstances. 

Back in 2012, I solely focused on helping young families in their 30s and 40s live a life fulfilled with what they value.

Wealthful started in 2014 and as a Financial Adviser, Mortgage Broker and Wealth Coach, my role is to help you maximise what you value in life; your wellbeing and happiness, not your money.

At Wealthful, you won't find me focusing on telling you what to do to make more money, I'll focus on the things that you actually value in life and that's much more than money.

If you are here because you are considering getting financial advice or mortgage broking, please take your time and take a good look. This is not a small decision and you need to find the right person for you.
