About Us

Who We Are

Halcyon Wealth Advisers was started in 2007 by Peter Mullens and John Francis. Halcyon is a term meaning ‘golden’ or ‘marked by peace and prosperity’ and symbolises their joint goal of providing clients with financial plans that ensure their prosperity into the future.

Peter started his career in insurance and superannuation and John has a broad range of skills and knowledge in financial planning. Over 17 years they grew a highly regarded full-service financial advisory business providing a range of wealth creation, wealth management and wealth protection services to their clients.

The recent merger with Principle Advisers, another Sydney based Advisory business, has created a partnership that will take the business into the future and enable the advisers to deliver an exceptional client experience though scale, the integration of technology and the adoption of robust systems and processes.

Future acquisitions (including that of McGrath Financial Services) and growth will allow Halcyon Wealth Advisers to continue their commitment to providing an exceptional client experience. Sean McGrath and Timothy Cummins have recently joined the adviser team and the administration support continues to expand as well. All advisers are CFP® qualified and members of the Financial Planning Association of Australia.

With offices in North Sydney and Norwest Halcyon Wealth Advisers are set up for the complex decade ahead and are well positioned to provide clients with outstanding advice now and into the future, post Royal Commission and Covid 19.


We believe that ensuring our clients understand their financial position and the various options available will empower them to make sensible choices in order to reach their lifetime financial objectives.
