Gary Williams has been helping South Australians save money for over 25 years. After entering the Finance and Investment Industry in 1987 as the State Manager of Yorke Financial Services, Gary saw an opportunity and launched out on his own.

In 1994 with the demand for home loan brokers becoming evident, Gary shifted the company’s focus to specialise in home loans only. He also invited other Shareholders into the company to build on its strength and expertise, which birthed the now well-known SA company and brand, Assured Home Loans Pty Ltd.
Over the past 28 years, Gary has been the spokesperson and face of Assured. As a qualified Land Agent and member of theProperty Investment Professionals of Australia, Gary has been instrumental in building Assured into a household name.
