Why did the business start? Before founding Superhero, I (John) worked in stock-broking for 15 years at companies including Macquarie Group and Shaw and Partners. In my roles, I serviced high net worth individuals and families, and corporate entities. I was fed up with the limited access everyday Australians have to some of the tools I used to serve my clients. I saw an opportunity to leverage my experience to empower Australians and democratise investing and superannuation – then I brought on Wayne (Baskin) as a co-founder to help me reach this goal.
