Pat Garrett and Brian Watson founded Six Park in 2014 while working together at Mr. Watson’s investment management firm in Melbourne, Australia. Pat and Brian met in the mid-1990s while Brian was managing the global private equity and venture capital investment unit of JP Morgan (New York), and have been working together in Melbourne since 2001.
In June 2014, Pat and Brian started building a better solution for Australian investors. They decided they could no longer ignore a major problem in Australia’s investment management industry – namely, that it was difficult, confusing, expensive and frustrating for most Australian investors to get professional, low-cost investment advice. Worse, there was ample evidence that investors’ best interests were not being looked after.
Six Park solves this problem by providing highly professional investment guidance and management that is on-line, low-cost and easy to use. Six Park is now a management team of seven, plus a world-class Investment Advisory Committee, chaired by Mr. Watson (former Chairman of JP Morgan Australia) and including Mr. Lindsay Tanner (former Minister of Finance) and Mr. Paul Costello (founding GM of the Australian Future Fund). The service combines the best of innovative technology, automation, sophisticated investment theory and human oversight, and is totally transparent about its offering and fees.
