Nick Cartledge,
CEO. Expat Property Planners 
CEO Melbourne Property Investments

Nick commenced his career in the banking and finance sector focusing on advising clients on wealth creation through property investing and tax minimisation. In 1996, Nick left the banking sector to establish Avion Properties.  In 2007 Nick presented property investment as a substitute superannuation for  Australian expats working in Asia. Nick says "Its important for Australian expats to understand the importance of insulating themselves against capital growth and inflation whilst they work abroad. Failure to have a plan could have them returning home and unable to re enter the Australian property market".  Nick speaks regularly at property investing seminars throughout Asia. His knowledge and laid-back manner ensures property investing is easily understood. As Nick says, "most Australians already understand the benefits of an investment property with a tenant paying the mortgage, but our specialty is finding the right property, managing that property and explaining the tax benefits".  Expat Property Planners now operates in over 9 countries helping Australian Expats to build a property port folio, source the right mortgage facilities and develop a suitable wealth plan for the future.
