Scott Pape is a licensed financial advisor and director of Barefoot Investment Management and is the acclaimed author of the best selling book, “The Barefoot Investor; Five Steps to Financial Freedom in your 20’s and 30’s”. Scott is fast tracking his way to becoming an Australian financial authority.
The Barefoot Investor, is a nationally syndicated columnist with News Ltd newspapers, and is a money commentator for Triple M and Channel 10’s The 7pm Project. Scott is a man who sees it how it is. By his own admission, he "keeps it real".
Scott understands that young people growing up are faced with a lot of pressures and, if they are to be successful, they are required to compete in an extremely competitive economic environment, where having a degree is by no means a ticket to a successful career and financial happiness. Scott uses his show on Syn FM, a student radio station, and his book, to improve the financial literacy among young Australians. Scott’s goal is to "allow young people to make the most of their assets."
Scott has successfully been able to combine his knowledge, experience, and infectious personality through which humour largely prevails, to do what most people thought impossible - carve a niche in the financial market targeted at young Australians. Scott has used these attributes to "make money sexy", and deliver street-wise strategies to people who simply don’t do finance.
