CWI Story

John Tiberi joined the Financial Services Industry in 1989, as the Sole Director of J & A Tiberi & Associates. John worked during this time as a Life Insurance multi-agent from an office in Gloucester Ave, Berwick. During this time John built a successful life insurance business from referrals from family, friends and existing clients – a business model that we still use today!

J & A Tiberi & Associates continued to grow and in May 2000, Nathan joined John and worked primarily as an Office Manager & Para Planner, giving John more time to devote to clients. In need of more office space J & A Tiberi & Associates moved to Spring Sq, Hallam in 2001 whilst also employing Anne Tiberi & Jess Tiberi on a part time basis, making J & A Tiberi & Associates a true family business. Kris Tiberi joined the family business in January 2008 and worked as a Para Planner/Adviser alongside John & Nathan, and the business moved to Sladen St, Cranbourne..

In 2009, J & A Tiberi & Associates became Creative Wealth Ideas. This significant change made Nathan & Kris business partners with John, ensuring that clients could see a clear long term future with Creative Wealth Ideas. In 2015 Creative Wealth Ideas moved to our current location in Ricketts Rd, Mount Waverley. John, Nathan & Kris continued as the Partners of the business.

In October 2017, and after 28 years in this business John retired from the Financial Planning industry. Nathan & Kris continue on as the Owners & Financial Planners within Creative Wealth Ideas.
