Liberate was founded by Tony Stocks from a passion to help individuals and businesses grow their wealth and achieve financial freedom. We do this by using the skills gained from working within large corporates, top tier accounting firms and working with high net worth individuals.
Upon learning after his honeymoon that his wife was pregnant with their first child, Tony resigned from his position as Finance Director for Clive Palmer’s company – Mineralogy and formed his own business to help clients achieve financial freedom. As Clive would most frequently say – “Time is the enemy”, and Tony definitely understood this with the demands of juggling a new business and new family.
Tony has 20 years of experience across banking, large privately owned companies and high net worth families in Queensland.
Highly qualified, Tony’s core skills and passion is forward thinking and planning to help clients execute strategies to achieve wealth.
