Mary Blake

Mary is a Chicago native and only relocated to Australia a few years ago, having finally been convinced by her husband to make the move from the US by way of a continuing bribe of Insider Membership at the Sydney Opera House, which she receives every year on their wedding anniversary.

Mary is a private equity specialist and is an expert at sourcing capital, with a particular focus on business growth and expansion. She has also given talks on managed buyouts and written detailed guides on corporate restructuring. In her own words, Mary has a fascination for all things financial and has turned her writing talents to a broad range of subjects. She holds a PhD in economics from the University of Chicago and has worked hard to make the expertise she gained from the research she conducted accessible to people of all levels of financial understanding.

Mary is a lover of shows and festivals and most fondly remembers securing tickets for and then seeing Bob Dylan at the Sydney Opera House in 2014. She is also a lover of art and can often be found wandering the halls of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, where she hopes to become a community ambassador in the future.

Ethan Cameron

Hailing from a large Melbourne-based family of Irish heritage, Ethan broke the Cameron mould by setting his sights on a career in hedge fund portfolio management. While he is keen to say that his job is not as glamorous as his brothers would like to believe, Ethan still gets a thrill out of his work and enjoys few things more than finely crafting effective investment strategies. He has been working with the same team of analysts and researchers for many years and likes to think of them as having a hive-like mind - always anticipating their respective needs and working with maximum efficiency and communication.

There are few writers more experienced than Ethan in making crucial portfolio decisions and who are as tapped into underlying global market conditions, so we welcome his regular contributions to The Bull. He is a keen investor himself and has a particular interest in ethical and socially responsible investing, which he often champions to friends, colleagues and anyone else who will listen.

Ethan is also a lover of the sea, taking regular sailing trips with his faithful dog Murphy (which means sea warrior in Irish), and he is always planning their next adventure.

Oliver King

Oliver describes himself as a rare beast, being a third-generation financial advisor, and both of his parents are well respected financial advisors in their own right. Oliver decided to ignore the temptation to buck the tradition, though he does recall holding short-lived dreams of becoming a professional rugby player until his first minor concussion. Ultimately that decision was fortunate for us at The Bull, as Oliver brings his undeniable familial and personal knowledge to our pages.

In his career he has written for several financial magazines and still writes a regular column for his small local newspaper, honing his style to best bring sound financial advice to his readers, particularly in regard to superannuation. His personal goal would be to see everybody enjoying the benefits and security of a robust pension plan.

Oliver has an obsession with news in all subjects around the world and refuses to say how large his collection of newspapers is or how much of his garage space it takes up. As such, he is usually the first to know about goings-on in the finance world and is a particular follower of new government regulations. He lives in Canberra with his wife Amelia and their three cats.

Thomas Hudson

Thomas would be the first to admit that he has an interesting history in the world of finance. He has been an insurance sales rep, a claims handler and a trainee stockbroker before finally settling down in the world of public accountancy. He is a member of the Institute of Public Accountants and has contributed to several special interest groups and committees.

As a public accountant, Thomas has a fantastic understanding of financial audits, transactions, tax and tracking, while his past endeavours and history of financial wanderlust have given him an even wider view of finance as a whole. His experience enables him to find and write the most interesting stories for a range of readers, from keen amateurs through to finance professionals. In his time, Thomas has covered articles on stocks, share trading, investing, CFDs, futures and properties, to name just a few.

In his personal life, Thomas is a long-standing swimming teacher and has coached his daughter Evie to a number of local and regional championships. He also has a son named after Australian swimming legend Ian Thorpe. More recently, Thomas has qualified as an outdoor wild swimming coach and spends his weekends trying to find the best new waters.
