About Us

Josh Dalton

Certified Financial Planner & Director

Qualifications: Bachelor of Business (Business Management), CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® , FPA member, Diploma of Technical Analysis, SMSF, Gearing and ASX accredited.

I enjoy working with people and numbers, so finance was always going to be a good fit for me. The best thing about my job is the variety of people I get to meet and work with. Everyone is so unique, has a different perspective on life and strive for different dreams and aspirations. It had always been a dream of mine to start a business. This led to the founding of Dalton Financial partners in January 2012.

Financial success is important, but I believe that relationships are the most fulfilling part of any career or personal journey. At Dalton Financial Partners, we are looking to build a well respected and high-quality boutique practice where we can foster long-term relationships with our clients.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing tennis, fishing, overseas travel and I am an aspiring philanthropist.

Paul Bugno

Financial Planner and Partner

Qualifications: Bachelor of Business (Accounting), Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning.

I joined Dalton Financial partners in October 2015 as a Partner in the business. After a successful career as a bank financial planner, I felt it was time to go out on my own.

I grew up on a farm in regional New South Wales and I come from a large family. I am currently based in Coolum on the Sunshine Coast, but I look after clients all over Queensland.

In my time off I enjoy socializing, being outdoors, playing and watching all sport, and spending time with my wife and our beautiful  daughter.

I love working at Dalton Financial Partners because we have a long-term commitment to our business and our clients.

Qualifications: Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning, currently completing Masters of Financial Planning.

I joined Dalton Financial Partners in May 2014. I have over a decade of experience in multiple roles in the financial services industry. After spending most of these years in large companies I felt that I needed to break away from the machine. The work I do at Dalton Financial Partners is truly centered on our client’s welfare and not just on revenue. In our business, there are no barriers between us and our clients. My long-term future is with Dalton Financial Partners.

Away from work, I am a busy dad and am active in my role as Co-ordinator of the Rocky Waterholes Bushcare Group as well as other natural environment activities.

I joined Dalton Financial Partners in 2016. I have personal experience and interest in property development, investment and design, adding to this through the completion of my financial studies. I have attained a broad knowledge of financial services and I use this to obtain the best outcome for our clients. Having an innate ability to connect with people and the drive to work with a team who make goals and dreams a reality is paramount.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy watching my sons at their sporting games, spending time with family, cooking and listening to music.

I joined Dalton Financial Partners in July 2019. I have over 20 years of experience in the wealth management (life and super) sector of financial services.

I am passionate about the benefits of great financial advice and I have seen the other side when something does happen, clients and families not having adequate measures in place.  This means on top of the emotional stress they are facing financial stress as well.  I really believe in Josh and I know he works to put his clients in a better position in life.

I have 3 young children and my interest includes hiking, seeing the sunrise and I am a big supporter of philanthropy.
