About Us

Meet our advisers

The Axiom Risk team is well qualified, having working in banking/financial

planning industry for more than 25 years collectively.

Vilma Pernini

Vilma’s association with the financial planning industry started in 2000. Her talents were such that she went on to become a strategic financial planner and eventual principal in a medium sized accounting and financial planning firm.


In 2009, Vilma decided to specialise in risk insurance because of a deep-held concern with underinsurance in our country, and a determination to focus on this much-neglected area of financial advice.


Consequently, Vilma has dedicated the last seven years of her career to helping Health Professionals, White Collar Professionals and Small Business Owners navigate and understand the benefits of personal and business risk insurance.


Vilma is also passionate about families and her life’s quest is to provide her clients, not with a policy, but with a plan to protect themselves and their families should the unimaginable happen.


She is a passionate and protective advocate of beautiful South Australia and, away from the office, can be found enjoying its breathtaking landscapes and indulging in its diverse range of amazing regional cuisine and wine.

Kimberley Phillips

Kimberley started her career as a graduate in the heady world of financial planning in 2006 following the completion of a Bachelor of Commerce and Applied Finance at the University of South Australia. She then went on to complete a Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning in 2010.


For Kimberley, Risk Protection has always been a passion and not long into her Financial Planning career she began specialising in Risk Insurance. Currently, her role includes supporting clients with Risk Insurance analysis; application process; review; and claims management.


Kimberley’s vibrant personality, strong technical knowledge and communication skills confirm her as a favourite with Axiom Risk’s clients. Her drive is ensuring people obtain insurance when they are young to set them up for the long term.


In her spare time, Kimberley enjoys catching up with friends over a glass of good wine and a cheese platter. Her other passion/hobby is interior design and decorating and she can often be found sitting with a cuppa searching for inspiration in numerous house and decor magazines.
