Posted September 03, 2018 02:22:40 An employee from an Australian financial service company has made a shocking admission: she used to work for the same office system in London as she does now.
Key points:Ms Ryda is a “senior financial adviser” for one of the world’s largest financial services firms, PwC Ms Rydas account includes some of the biggest names in the industryMs Rynas family are part of the largest family of office and office furniture firms in Australia, with a number of offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and BrisbaneSource: The Australian Financial Reviews article The revelation comes as Ms Ryna prepares to launch a new business, The Rydawalla Group, to provide finance and services to clients around the world.
The company has been set up to provide financial advice and advisory services to multinational companies and individuals, according to its website.
The announcement comes amid mounting pressure to address the housing crisis that has seen Sydney house prices surge more than 50 per cent in the past five years, with some properties in Sydney’s inner west fetching as much as $200,000.
The former staff member from the Rydaws office in London, who was not identified, has told the Australian Financial Journal that she started working for PwCs office system as a “student” in 2005.
“My first job was to help manage the office supply and to handle people’s personal finance, and I went on to do that over the next few years,” Ms Ryne told the magazine.
“I would see clients for a number in London and Melbourne and in Brisbane.”
They’d ask for advice and I would do it.
And then I would work with other staff members, and we would manage the supply.
“It is not clear whether Ms Rypas employer is a Pwcs affiliate or not, but the former staff employee told the Journal that the former office was run by the company’s senior financial adviser, who she did not identify.
She said that in 2013, the firm started to look into the Rypays family.”
We had a couple of clients and they said, ‘Can you help us out?
Can you help me?’ and I said, you know, I’ll see what we can do.
And so, I moved to London to work with that client group,” Ms Rhyne said.
She continued: “I started working with that person.
I thought, ‘Well, I have to be honest, I am a junior financial adviser.'””
I don’t have any experience working with senior people, and then they said to me, ‘You’ve got to come down here to work on the family business.’
“And so I did, I did the family thing, and now I am working on the company and the company is doing the family.”
In a statement, the company said that Ms Rys account includes “some of the most highly respected and sought after financial advisers in the financial services industry”.
“We have worked closely with the Rys family for many years, and as the family’s expertise and track record as a leading company in the field of office supply has been recognised, we have developed a unique relationship with them,” it said.
“Through our expertise in office supply, we offer our clients the opportunity to be their own financial advisors.”
Ms Rhyne, who is a senior financial advisor for one company, is the eldest daughter of former Australian Prime Minister John Rydra and has been with the company since she was 16.
She has also worked for PWC and PwCS.
