Enduring client relationships are a family legacy in which Julie holds great pride. As the Managing Director of Ford & Associates she continues the commitment to premium service her parents Barry and Margaret began back in 1964 when they founded the business. Today, it is not uncommon for Julie and her team to assist second and third generations of Canberra families; a true testament to the high esteem in which the Ford family name is held.

Julie Ford is known for helping small business owners, tradies, builders and construction workers to protect their wealth and assets – now and into the future – through tailored financial plans inclusive of appropriate risk insurances. Additionally, she is also authorised to facilitate general insurances. These combined qualifications are underpinned by more than two decades of industry experience. Whilst her tenure and credentials are formidable, her clients also value her down-to-earth approach. Julie has a sincere and powerful sense of empathy that propels her work ethic beyond getting the job done to truly personalised service, ever mindful of her clients’ entire financial position and their evolving needs as their lives, careers and families mature.
