Adviser Liaison Team
Hi, I’m Peter Thompson, Adviser Relations Manager at Dover. My main role is speaking with prospective advisers to help guide them through the often confusing process in deciding upon a suitable dealer group. I also strive to develop key relationships with various industry BDMs to deliver flexible solutions with respect to software, research and investment models. When I am away from the office, I enjoy getting outdoors to swim, bike and run!
Hi my name is Florence. I started my career in accounting and finance in 2007 and have grown to be a trusted accountant & financial planner. At Dover, I handle adviser relations matters, sometimes taking care of their compliance needs and also working with new and prospective advisers in learning more about Dover as a dealer group.
Outside of Dover, I like to do a bit of running, yoga, scuba diving and and enjoy reading good books.
Compliance and Legal Team
Hi, my name is Yin and I am the Compliance Manager at Dover. My main role includes overseeing the compliance processes of Dover and providing support to Dover’s advisers. I hold a Master of Banking and Financial Services Law from the University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of Law (Hons) from Cardiff University, Wales, United Kingdom. I am in the midst of completing the professional exam to be a qualified Legal Practitioner in Australia.
I love spending my free time with family and friends, taking a stroll in the park or along the beach, travelling and cooking.
Before becoming a Legal Practitioner Director of MLA Lawyers I gained valuable experience working as the in-house Counsel at Dover, McMasters, and within the legal department of National Australia Bank and Gadens Lawyers. I completed a double degree Bachelor of Laws/Commerce at Deakin University with majors in finance and financial planning. I am currently a fifth year practicing lawyer specialising in business law, estate planning, succession planning and SMSFs. I am also a qualified financial planner. During my time with McMasters’ Accountants Solicitors and Financial Planners I gained valuable experience dealing with complex financial planning matters for doctors, allied health professionals and the general public. Having financial planning knowledge and experience has given me the advantage of being able to advise clients on legal matters with the consideration of any financial implications that may be involved in the matter.
I can provide advice in the areas of business structuring, tax optimisation, appropriate business and personal insurance covers, wills and powers of attorney, superannuation, appropriate investment options and, most importantly, achieving your lifestyle and retirement goals as soon as possible.
Outside of work hours I take every opportunity to travel with my wife and I enjoy competing against Peter Thompson, our Adviser Relations Manager, in swimming, cycling and running so he knows who is best!.
Hi my name is Serra Koh. I am part of the compliance team and responsible for reviewing statements of advice to ensure that they are compliant. I assist the para-planning team from time to time drafting advice for our advisers and enjoy observing the works of different financial planners. I look forward to learning more and developing my skills with Dover.
I completed my Bachelors in Mass Communication majoring in Public Relations and am currently pursuing a Masters in Law. I am also in the midst of completing my Diploma to be a qualified Financial Planner. Aside from having a travel bug, I enjoy reading and relaxing by the beach.
Hi, my name is Sharlini and I am part of the Compliance team at Dover and the Legal team at MLA Lawyers. I am a qualified financial planner and a first year practicing solicitor. My main role is to conduct legal reviews of Statements of Advice, as well as various other legal and compliance tasks.

IT and Marketing Team
Hello, my name is Wilbert. I am the IT manager at Dover. I started my professional career in business advisory at McMasters’ Accountants (a related firm to Dover) after having graduated from Monash with a commerce and a business information system degrees. I later found my passion in applying IT strategies and implementations to business requirements for Dover. Part of my role is developing ideas to bring about new business opportunities to the Dover Group. Outside of work, I go for a jog and a quick swim.
After initially studying art and design I have spent fifteen years working as a graphic designer. As a mature age student I completed a Bachelor of Arts Internet Communications degree. I am currently working on post graduate studies in marketing.
I enjoy anything to do with the water, particularly swimming and surfing. When I find some spare time I enjoy reading and cooking.
I am Terry McMaster. I am the responsible manager at Dover and I am responsible for ensuring Dover complies with the Corporations Act and other relevant legislation, and making sure our advisers provide clear, concise and effective advice that is in the client’s best interests and is appropriate to the client. I practice as a solicitor, an accountant and a financial planner, and have done so for more than thirty years. I have a wide background in commercial law, particularly revenue law and superannuation. I also do a lot of estate planning work.
I am lucky enough to live in Black Rock, so I walk to work every day. I am married to Simone, have three adult or near adult children, and spend most of my spare time training for long distance triathlons. I particularly enjoy helping advisers with client strategies and seeing advisers grow and develop over the years.
