Scott Pape

The barefoot investor who makes money sexy

Scott Pape makes money sexy. Heralded as the Jamie Oliver of finance, he is a successful stockbroker and a former investment advisor with one of Melbourne’s leading finance firms EL & C Baillieu. Scott Pape is also a media commentator, author and host of his own radio show titled The Barefoot Investor on 90.7 Syn FM.

But it is Scott Pape’s unique ability to combine his knowledge, experience and infectious humour that makes him such an in demand keynote speaker. He has used these attributes to “make money sexy” and deliver street-wise strategies to people who simply don’t do finance.

Scott Pape understands the pressures faced by young people on a day-to-day basis and the extremely competitive economic environment in which they are surrounded.

He understands that having a degree is by no means a ticket to a successful career and financial happiness, so when he gives advice, in his own words, he “keeps it real”. Scott Pape appears as the financial expert on the SBS TV show The Nest, which follows three very different Australian families as they participate in a social experiment, to find out how prepared (or unprepared!) their children are for living sustainable, independent futures.

In addition, he regularly appears on TV shows such as A Current Affair, Sunrise, Mornings with Kerri-Anne, Good Morning Australia and the Today Show, as well as on radio providing practical information on all things money-related. Scott also writes a weekly financial column for News Limited papers in all capital cities.

Scott Pape’s first book, The Barefoot Investor (2004) was an overwhelming success. The book has since been printed in the UK, Holland and India and in 2007 a revised and updated version was released in Australia. Sir Richard Branson probably said it best when he stated, ‘The Barefoot Investor makes finance fun’.

Ultimately Scott’s ability to relate to, and make a connection with the young Australians of today, is fast tracking his way to becoming an Australian celebrity.
