Meet David

David Brown


After starting as a graduate with Westpac in 1981 I commenced financial advice with Westpac Life in 1988. The foundation of MiQ started in 2006 when I left Westpac and along with Joyce Carkeek decided to form a partnership, MQ Financial Services. In 2015 that partnership along with six other advisers incorporated to form MiQ Private Wealth in July 2015.

Since 2015 MiQ has grown significantly, allowing advisers the opportunity to meet their potential and providing their clients confidence that there is a team, behind the scenes, always there to help.

The journey has provided me with many challenges that has given me the experience and knowledge that I can share with others, especially clients. 

MiQ’s Mission is to enhance the lives of our clients and team members. Our Vision is to be Australia’s most trusted financial services practice. 

Unfortunately, I am a tragic North Sydney supporter waiting for the day they return to the big league. I still enjoy playing competitive Touch Football, Golf and living life through the eyes of five wonderful grandchildren.

  • Bachelor of Business Management QUT
  • Post Graduate diploma in Financial Planning Deakin University
  • Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors
