About Us – Menico Tuck Parrish Financial Services Cairns

Two generations of caring for future generations

Every human faces the challenge of providing, protecting and planning for their family and future. Over 50 years ago, the people of Cairns trusted two names to help them achieve this: John Menico (OAM) and Fred Parrish.

Over a generation John and Fred built their respective practices and reputations helping their clients grow, protect and pass on their wealth. They advocated a steady and true approach through Cairns’ wild booms and busts. Their legacy continues today in the firm of Menico Tuck Parrish Financial Services, now known as MTP Financial.

This longevity has been continued with each of the Principals having over 25 years’ experience, combined with the depth and diversity of advice that the Practice provides.

One Firm, Many Futures

Our vision is to be valued for incontestable service with personal integrity and a passion for what we do. We encourage open sharing of financial intelligence for the benefit of all our clients and adherence to robust processes that keep clients informed, yet are flexible enough to meet the fast pace of the world we now live in.

We all want a comfortable, balanced life. Wealth means different things to us all, so we take a holistic approach – whether its education or financial issues, providing focus in times of stress, designing complex technical strategies or reassurance you’re on the right track – we can help you every step of the way.

A Dedicated Team

Although our reputation is founded on our long-standing client relationships, it is cemented by the team’s commitment to provide high quality advice. As a result, the team has won top financial planning awards, repeatedly.

At Menico Tuck Parrish, maintaining advice quality is very much a team effort. Keeping the whole team engaged throughout the advice process is not only good for clients; it also helps foster camaraderie within the team itself.
