Referral Partners

Specialist referral partners


If required, we have a team of experienced and highly respected referral partners who provide support, research and advice to maximise your benefits from the start. Alternatively, we can work together with your own tax agent and/or financial planner.

Financial Planning
When recommending Tony to our clients, we  believe an important advantage is that Principal Edge is not owned by a financial institution thereby allowing the company to be flexible in meeting their client’s individual requirements, rather than selling the parent institution’s own products.



Tony Kench joined Principal Edge in January 2013 bringing with him 25 Years’ experience in Financial Services. A qualified actuary by training, Tony spent 23 years in a distinguished career with Commonwealth Bank. This included establishing the Commonwealth’s Equity Capital Markets business from scratch and being responsible for the debt/equity hybrid business, leading capital and managing significant propriety investment portfolios. In 2012 Tony made the decision to move into a role where he could get personal satisfaction working closely with individual clients and small business owners.

Commercial Finance
Alan Whitehead is our expert referral partner in large project market finance. Alan’s  experience in institutional banking is rare amongst brokers. This alliance gives our clients the best possible outcome when searching for funding solutions.



Alan Whitehead has had an extensive international corporate banking career and has held several senior executive management positions in United Kingdom, Southern Africa, North America and Australia.

Alan’s diverse background allows him to assess finance proposals in an all-embracing manner. In particular, he is able to highlight strengths and mitigate weaknesses and thereby present loan proposals in the most rational and persuasive ways.  Alan has developed a unique tendering process which is an effective method in presenting proposals to a panel of lenders, resulting in the best offers from the lenders. Alan is able to use his knowledge and understanding of credit practices and institutional views to negotiate the most favourable outcome for borrowers and, in most circumstances, eliminate conditions that the majority of commercial brokers today would not have the influence, industry respect or know-how to accomplish.
