Our Team

Dynamic. Innovators.

Matthew Ford

Director

Matt started Finestream Capital in 2011 following a less than excellent experience when buying a car.

‘I was working for a big accounting firm at the time and remember thinking that if this had happened to me, it must be happening all the time’

Matt set up Finestream to offer simple, honest finance solutions to people buying cars.

It was weird that there was no real advice or guidance being given by banks or dealers on what is to many people the second most expensive asset that they would ever buy’

A love of cars made it easier to get the business to catch on.

Saving people time and money on their car purchases by just offering great service seemed simple enough but it was amazing how rare it actually was.

With a strong passion for the business, Matt grew Finestream to be what it is today.

In 2013 Matt was named an industry young gun by MPA Magazine.

In 2016 Matt was named a finalist for Finsure SA Broker of The Year.

Matt holds a certificate IV in Finance and a Diploma of Finance.

LIZ BARTER

General Manager – Operations

Liz joined Finestream in 2015 originally as a consultant.

Liz had worked for QBE corporate in Sydney for close to ten years and brought with her a wealth of knowledge from a very high institutional level.

Matt met Liz on a flight from Adelaide to Melbourne and the rest is history.

As he says ‘it is by sheer chance that I was sat next to one of the smartest people I’d ever met, after an hour long conversation about banking and insurance I knew I had to have her on the team’.

At first Liz was the manager of corporate strategy at Finestream, that roll quickly evolved into heading up the whole home loan division and running most of the operations of the company.

Liz’s passion for her work is obvious through the results she achieves for her clients.

Liz has a passion for building businesses, aside from Finestream, Liz founded The Wardrobe Collection, a well-known online woman’s clothing rental boutique.

‘Regardless of industry, building a great business comes down to providing a great service, every single time’

Outside of the work, Liz has a passion for property whether its finding it, building it, renovating or decorating it. Liz is a total expert.

Liz holds a certificate IV in Finance and a Diploma of Finance.
