Ruth Gerke


Financial Planners

Ruth has worked in the finance industry for almost 30 years, the last 13 with Godfrey Pembroke and Praescius.  She holds a Diploma of Financial Planning and is little over half-way through her Masters in Financial Planning.  Ruth’s role is that of Financial Planner and her particular areas of expertise are defined benefit superannuation funds including those operating for Commonwealth, State and Territory government employees.

Except for a short interlude working in Townsville and our Narellan office, Ruth has lived in the Territory since 1986.  She maintains a high level of service for her clients throughout the country via phone, email and regular trips to Katherine.

Ruth has become involved in her local community centre and is in the process of setting up financial literacy programs targeting various age groups.  She has also joined a women’s group that meets monthly and brings together women of all ages and many different backgrounds.

During her ‘down-time’ Ruth enjoys genealogy, walking the dog, spending time with family, pottering in the garden and getting out on the water.

And when all that’s done, Ruth loves cooking exciting, different meals using local produce, and then curling up on the lounge with a good book.
