A passion for property – and wine
Eric and Mandy migrated to Australia from China over 10 years ago. Mandy is an accountant, while Eric has had a more varied business career, currently working in the insurance industry. His true passion, however, is Australian wine and he has started a wine business in his spare time. Prior to investing with Ironfish, Eric and Mandy were already property investors.
“We came to Australia when were in our mid-30s, so we knew we wouldn’t be able to rely on the pension or superannuation alone for a comfortable retirement. We always thought it was important to invest in property or the share market once we had saved some money.
“Before investing with Ironfish, we had already got started with property investment, primarily for negative gearing purposes.”
Building confidence and trust to invest
Eric and Mandy heard about Ironfish through a local newspaper. Mandy later met Ironfish Senior Property Investment Strategist Aidan Zhu at a Chinese community social event.
“Aidan invited us to an Ironfish Brisbane event and later a seminar presented by [Ironfish CEO] Joseph Chou. We’ve since become good friends with Aidan and his wife Irene, as well as many of their colleagues at the Ironfish Brisbane office.
“We’ve been to many more seminars and events since then and the experience is always very educational and constructive. The most important thing is that attending these events helped build up our confidence about Ironfish.”
