Michael Fava

Senior Financial Planner

B.BUS (ACC), DIP FP, CFP®,

I have worked in the financial services industry since 1992, and have experience in several areas including personal lending, commercial lending and financial planning. 

I’ve been a financial planner since 1999 and my role at NAB Financial Planning as a Financial Planner and Senior Financial Planner spanned 12 years. 

In 2012 I founded Fava Financial Planning in Melbourne’s western suburbs, which in 2021 was acquired and became a part of the Forbes Fava Financial Planning group.

I hold a Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degree, and a Diploma of Financial Planning (DFP), a leading education course of study for Financial Advisers.  I’ve also achieved the globally recognized Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation and I am member of the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA).

I am based at our Fraser Rise office, in Melbourne’s North/West. 

In my spare time enjoy my sport fishing and playing the saxophone in our community brass band.
