About Chris Browne from Rising Tide
When Chris Browne first sought financial planning advice in his late 20’s, he felt traditional financial advice firms didn’t speak his language or implied he was not cashed up enough as a young person to be valued as a serious client. Completely underwhelmed by his experience, Chris launched Rising Tide - specialising in advice for a new generation. Rising Tide believes young people develop brilliant ideas that can either change lives or create serious wealth. They lend an ear and take their young clients seriously – offering positive realistic feedback and support to reach goals sooner.
Chris’s desire to give back to the community is reflected in his commitment to 1% for Humanity® an organisation that he started with his brother, establishing a movement of individuals and businesses giving their time and money to fight extreme poverty and injustice in Cambodia.
