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.

Over the last few years Halcyon has acquired a number of Sydney based advisory businesses, building a sizable team for the future and enabling the advisers to deliver an exceptional client experience though scale, the integration of technology and the adoption of robust systems and processes.

Future acquisitions and growth will allow Halcyon Wealth Advisers to continue their commitment to providing an exceptional client experience. Liz Hughes has recently joined the adviser team and the administration support continues to expand as well.

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.

The MonSTaR Foundation

MonSTaR Directors Hamish Pearce, Greg Hargreaves and Mark Golding with Patron Peter Overton

MonSTaR raises funds for Motor Neurone Disease as well as supporting educational programmes for children with disabilities and special learning needs.

Halcyon Wealth Advisers have chosen to support The MonSTaR Foundation due to the close ties with our Senior Adviser Hamish Pearce. Hamish lost his wife, Fiona, to Motor Neurone Disease (MND) when she was just 33 years of age.

The MonSTaR Foundation was formed in 2007 when Hamish and a couple of his mates (who had sisters with disabilities) were inspired to start a charity to raise funds for MND and The STaR Association. The STaR Association places special needs teachers into mainstream day care centres so that kids with all kinds of intellectual and physical disabilities can assimilate with other kids and learn together.

To date, The MonSTaR Foundation has raised over $4.5m for Motor Neurone Disease as well as supporting education programs for children with disabilities and special learning needs.
