Arthur Goode is a well known name in Australian financial circles. His interest in financial matters began when as a young journalist, he moved from sports writing to finance. This led him to move from journalism into stock broking, and in 1958 he established his own firm AC Goode & Co.
He was an entrepreneur and constantly sought new interests and opportunities for his company and his staff. He established the All State Group, and established two merchant banks, one in collaboration with the Chase Manhattan Bank, and another with the Chemical Bank.
Arthur has been described as one of the founding fathers of the modern Australian financial system through his wide involvement with the financial sector over a period of 70 formative years.
The AC Goode Foundation that he established continues to distribute funds to the National Gallery of Victoria and numerous charities in Melbourne.
