Jace Cordell

Principal and Senior Financial Adviser

Jace Cordell is our Principal and Senior Financial Adviser.

Jace spent the early years of his career providing financial advice in an established national wholistic advice company where he gained invaluable experience in a wide range of financial services and advice strategies. His passion for building relationships with people and providing a quality advice enabled him to successfully grow into a senior registered financial adviser and open the financial planning business in Newcastle in 2015. Since then, the business has expanded the service to cover Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, and The Central Coast, and now has clients Australia wide as well as internationally.

In 2017, Jace Cordell was recognised at a national level and was awarded The Mortgage Choice National Adviser of the Year. This prestigious award is designed to recognise financial advisors who deliver the highest standard of professionalism and champion excellence in financial advice. This accolade is a synonymous with Steel Lake Advisory Service’s ethos – we truly pride ourselves of providing high quality advice and are passionate about the relationships we form.

Jace was also named a finalist in the Young Leaders in Finance Awards 2018 within the ‘Regional Professional of the Year’ category. This accolade uncovers and recognises leaders in the financial space and celebrates emerging talent who are driving change.

Jace has a Bachelor of Business (Financial Planning) from RMIT and is registered with the Tax Practitioners Board to give tax financial advice.

He has spent some time in the United Arab Emirates providing international advice to clients from all over the world. Now he is settled back home advising families in Australia with his wealth of knowledge and experience. 

Jace believes the most rewarding part of being a financial adviser is helping people realise and achieve their financial goals so they can spend more time focusing on the other things in their life.

He takes great pride in providing tailored advice for his clients on areas such as tax minimisation, wealth creation, risk protection, superannuation, and retirement planning.

In his spare time, Jace enjoys experiencing local bars and restaurants. He is an avid supporter of Chelsea Football Club in the English Premier league and the Formula One. He never misses a game or race, which explains some later starts in the office on a Monday morning. Jace enjoys travelling and is always planning the next trip. Whether that be to see family in Melbourne and Brisbane or taking off overseas to catch another Premier League game and see more of the world.
