The Distinctive Finance Team
“During my time working in both big and small banks, one aspect of the industry has remained prevalent – relationships built with clients are often eroded through banker career progression or changes in business direction. Distinctive Finance’s motto is ‘building lifelong relationships, and on simplifying the complicated.’ Fundamentally, this is a core belief that I also share.”
Coupled with his wealth of experience, Leighton is also a licensed valuer and specialises in tailoring finance solutions for accounting and high net worth clients.
Leighton originally from the Central Coast now calls Manly home, where he lives with his partner Laura. In his spare time, he enjoys travel, cooking, watching everything sporting related and spending time with family and friends.
Christian’s professional life began as a teller before moving into a plethora of fields including Personal and Private Banking, Directorships, State Management positions and national roles as Head of Banking.
“The majority of my corporate career has been spent extensively working within and leading private banking teams. ‘Distinctive Finance’ has been created to accurately reflect our ethos, namely a high touch client service model. The two key differences that we also align ourselves with is both the understanding of the associated high costs to be considered with private clients. Also the longevity of tenure one would expect from their dedicated financial specialist.”
Christian is married to Cate and has three children, Erica, Jade and Marcus. His hobbies include Golf, Boxing, Motor Sports and spending time with his family. He is also a Black Belt in Karate.
