Investment Team and Financial Advisers

Christian Ryan

CEO BBUS (Accounting and Financial Planning)

CEO Christian Ryan co-founded Beulah over 10 years ago and has been involved within the financial services industry for over 20 years. His vision was to create a financial services hub that would make a positive difference to the lives of our clients.

Christian’s expertise is in investment and business structuring, investment markets and portfolio advice but now splits much of his time between growing the company and working with the team across its range of services and investment strategies. Outside of work, he is a family man and continues his love of rowing having competed at the Olympic games and world championship events, AFL football and recently challenged himself on the Tour De France cycling circuit.

With nearly 25 years of experience in finance and investment markets, Tom has been an integral part of creating many of Beulah’s unique investment processes.

Prior to joining Beulah, Tom was a co-founder and the Managing Director of MM&E Capital, a Melbourne based hedge fund where he successfully managed the day to day affairs of both the company and its various funds under management.

Director BBUS (ACCOUNTING)

I started my career in accounting and tax, transitioning to financial advising in 1996. I provide my clients with a holistic approach, covering comprehensive advice across investments, super, tax planning, business succession, estate planning and risk management. In 2013, I merged my business Sage Private Clients with Beulah, and became a Director and shareholder of Beulah. I am passionate about working with my clients across all aspects of their finances, building long and rewarding friendships in the process.

I love the outdoors and the country, and split my time between living in Melbourne with my wife, and working on my farm, where my pride and joy is Rex the ram. I am also still to be found on the football field every fortnight, playing Super rules with Williamstown.

David Blackborrow

Senior Client Adviser BBUS, ADFP, SSA

I have been providing advice for over 15 years in the industry, with much of my time focusing on Self Managed Superannuation Funds. Due to the complex nature of these structures, I work closely with clients designing direct equity portfolios, estate planning, insurances, structuring pensions and keeping up to date with budgetary and legislation changes.

Outside the office hours you will seldom find me in Melbourne unless the Cats are playing.

Habitually, I’m in pursuit of recreational activities involving the beach, the snow or the outdoors. Perhaps my greatest passion is to travel, with a goal to visit at least one new country every year.

Angus Tyers

I joined Beulah Capital in 2018. I have been a Chartered Accountant since 2015 and for the past 5 years worked predominantly in income tax.

Over the past 4 years I have done a lot of work with various family groups giving me a lot of experience regarding tax issues of individuals, family trust entities and companies. I will be working closely with the other Senior Advisers to build out my experience in analysing investment opportunities, as well as using my current knowledge to assist implementing the best holistic financial strategies for our high net wealth clients.

During the winter I am a keen Melbourne supporter and would be very surprised if we do not win 3 out of the next 4 premierships. Over Summer I used to do a lot of Rowing, however now play more golf.

Miriam Kauer

Having joined Beulah Capital in 2020, I have been working within the wealth management industry both domestically and internationally for the last 15 years. With my background in working for family and wealth management offices as well as my project management experience gained whilst working for large multi-national corporations in Switzerland, my focus lies in working closely with the Senior Advisers, maintaining client portfolios and sound compliance.

Within my professional career I have experienced that delivering exceptional client experience is key in order to build long lasting relationships with our high net wealth clients.

As a passionate runner, outside of work, you can find me running with my husband along the Yarra or somewhere out on a trail. Also, when I am not doing any kind of physical exercising myself, I love enjoying the great sport events Melbourne is hosting such as the Australian Open or a footy game.

Operations Team

With a background as a Senior Adviser and General Manager I have been involved in the financial services industry for over 15 years. With a focus on technology and superior business performance I ensure that advisers and staff are sufficiently supported to deliver high end services to our clients.

I love all things operations and act as the go to person in the office to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Outside of work my wife & I are busy with our two beautiful children and getting down to the beach at much as possible. If time permits (which isn't often with two under 5) you will also find me trying to master the game of golf with varying success.

Andrew Matheson

I have been with Beulah from the beginning and I’m responsible for overseeing our investment administration and records. I thoroughly enjoy working with the team at Beulah.
