    About the presenters:

    Sarah-Hugill.jpg

    Sarah Hugill

    Sarah Hugill is a financial adviser with ten years’ experience in financial services.

    She provides comprehensive financial advice, which means that strategies incorporate multiple aspects of clients’ financial situation, for example cashflow, superannuation, investment, tax, insurance, and estate planning.

    Completing her law degree while working in financial planning provided Sarah with a unique insight into the impact of financial literacy on the attitudes and experiences of her student peers. Sarah believes improving client and community financial literacy is critical in her role as a financial adviser because it allows people to recognise their potential, take control, set goals and ultimately live life on their own terms.

    Peter Capuano

    My name is Peter Capuano and I was admitted to practice to the legal industry in 2018. I completed a bachelor of laws and bachelor of commerce, majoring in economics, at Deakin University and subsequently attended Leo Cussen Centre for Law to complete my GDLP.

    I work primarily in providing commercial and corporate services to clients in the professional services industry and I am truly passionate about financial and corporate law.

    Growing up, the importance of financial literacy was ingrained into me with discussions around the dinner table regularly involving topics in finance and economics. This was further bolstered by my studies in commerce where I learned the applicability of financial literacy in every day decision making. I hope to start the conversation surrounding this topic with young adults in all stages of their career.
