Diogo Rodrigues – Associate Adviser
How did you come to join Acquira?
I joined the team in 2018 after finishing my university degree. I have a Bachelor of Commerce with dual majors (Financial Planning, Accounting). Before that, I worked at Westpac as a personal banking adviser. I also spent many years in the hospitality industry, an experience I now use to bring a great customer experience to Acquira’s clients. I am the recipient of multiple awards and a scholarship from Platinum Asset Management.
What are your interests outside of Acquira?
My ideal weekend involves spending time with my wife and daughter on the Gold Coast outdoors. I love surfing and cooking, especially a traditional Brazilian charcoal barbecue. I was a tennis champion as a child and am now returning to the sport.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
You can achieve anything you want in life. We create our own outcomes in life, even when we need a little push or help from someone else.
What is on top of your bucket list?
Travel, especially a surfing boat trip with my friends and a holiday in the Maldives with my family.
What is your idea of a great week at work?
That feeling of accomplishment is a big thing for me. It has a direct connection to how I performed with clients and colleagues, in helping the business, and in completing the goals I set for the week.
