From humble beginnings in a shed to CBD Melbourne in what is now one of the fastest-growing small finance business in Australia, Michael Mancuso’s pursuit with PGA Advisory is in helping people to achieve long-term financial security and growth.
Raised in a middle-class family in Melbourne that moved houses 16 times, Michael Mancuso grew up around and frequented people from all walks of life and in doing so helped him realise the importance of financial security. In what was originally a business that provided advice on the buying and selling of investment property; PGA having been founded in 2016 is now in its 4th year creating wealth cultivation strategies for the everyday Australian.
What makes them stand out? Michael disregards hidden agendas in an industry that is riddled with scepticism due to risk, and instead prioritises transparency.
Risk is half of our consultation (…) having us there to support people through risk or downturns in the market is really important”says Michael Mancuso, CEO of PGA Advisory
Michael and his team have built a highly successful business from scratch by providing a strong service aimed at customers’ individual needs rather than a ‘one shoe fits all strategy’ in what he proudly describes as a ‘non-pressure environment’.
When he’s not at the office, Michael enjoys spending time on his farm with his wife, Bridie, having only just recently gotten married, and their Doberman and Italian greyhound. Fine Art is one of his passions, and Michael has even dubbed his collection which he began in his teens, ‘Micky’s Art’. He now represents artists from across Australia and internationally via his Instagram account and exhibitions.
