About-us_platesGoldsworthy is the oldest privately owned AMP practice in Australia. Our history dates back to 1963 when Bill Orr – a 6’ 4” former World War II pilot – started as an AMP agent in Tamworth, NSW. The following year he set up office at Stones Corner in Brisbane.

The oldest…but the youngest

Katrina and Ralph Goldsworthy – Bill Orr’s daughter and son-in-law – joined the practice in 1990. In 1994 the fast growing practice was divided in two, with Ralph Goldsworthy running financial planning and Katrina Goldsworthy running general insurance. In 2004, Katrina and Ralph’s two young daughters – Jennifer and Kate – joined the practice. Jennifer is now in charge of the financial planning arm of the practice and Kate has been running general insurance since her mother retired in 2010. Two of the youngest managers in the industry are running the oldest practice

50 years of recognition

Almost every year since the practice was founded, Goldsworthy has been recognised as one of the leading AMP practices in Australia. The proof is in our reception. Each of the more than 40 Royal Copenhagen plates signifies a year of outstanding achievement. In the past few years, Jennifer Goldsworthy has added a couple of personal awards to our collection: in 2007 – at the age of 21 – she won a New Advisor of the Year award with AMP and in 2010 she won an AMP Advice & Innovation award.


The world has changed completely in the last 50 years. So has Goldsworthy. The only thing we haven’t changed is the one thing we’ll never change: we built our practice on trust and everything we do is guided by this. It’s the only way we know how to run a practice and it seems to work: many of our clients have been with us for decades, some since the very beginning.

We would love to welcome you into our family as well.
