Pape OAM

The barefoot investor.


Scott Pape is a former investment advisor with one of Melbourne's leading finance firms EL & C Baillieu. He is also a media commentator, author and hosted his own radio show titled 'The Barefoot Investor' on 90.7 Syn FM.

In 2020 Scott was awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for his service to the community, and to financial education.

Current work

Scott's book, The Barefoot Investor, a best-seller in Australia, has now been revised and is soon to be released in Europe. With appearances on A Current Affair, Mornings with Kerri- Ann and Good Morning Australia, Scott's profile continues to rise. Scott appears on Triple M's 'Wrong Side of the Bed' each Saturday and provides expert finance and real estate advice and is soon to become the most popular financial advisor in Australia.

Scott is a man who sees it how it is. By his own admission, he "keeps it real". Scott understands that young people growing up are faced with a lot of pressures and, if they are to be successful, they are required to compete in an extremely competitive economic environment, where having a degree is by no means a ticket to a successful career and financial happiness.

Scott Pape is also a well known and sought after key note speaker. He regularly addresses corporate luncheons, seminars and schools throughout Australia.

Previous experience

Radio: Scott used his show on Syn FM, a student radio station, and his book, to improve the financial literacy among young Australians. Scott's goal is to "allow young people to make the most of their assets".

Speaker: Pape has successfully been able to combine his knowledge, experience, and infectious personality through which humour largely prevails, to do what most people thought impossible - carve a niche in the financial market targeted at young Australians. Scott has used these attributes to "make money sexy", and deliver street wise strategies to people who simply don't do finance.

Celebrity: Ultimately Scott's ability to relate to, and make a connection with the young Australians of today, is fast tracking his way to becoming an Australian celebrity.

Scott was great. He definitely added value to our program and worked in well with the other presenters he worked with. However, the single best thing about him was that he was exceedingly professional - he did his preparation beforehand, checked in about his audience charcteristics with us beforehand, tailored his presentation to the audience, and even checked in for feedback as he went.

Scott Pape was a great speaker and was creative in his execution of the topic, which was quite original and well received by the audience.
