Bringing a new approach to bankruptcy
As one of the largest registered bankruptcy Trustees in Australia, we try to work with each and every client to achieve mutually-desired outcomes wherever possible.
We don’t believe in a standard ‘one size fits all’ approach because everyone is different. What we do believe in is looking at every client as a person, and working with you to understand your situation, your challenges, and your needs.

What does our average client look like?
Just like your neighbour. Your colleagues. Your best friend. Your parents. You.
Our clients come from a diverse range of backgrounds. They’re hard-working individuals, just like you, who have been impacted by illness, unemployment, a relationship breakdown or other external factors.
People filing for bankruptcy come from all forms of life. They include chief executives, general managers, legislators and specialist managers. There are also people who have experience in the arts, media, business, human resources, legal, accounting, finance, design, engineering, information & communications technology, education and marketing. Health professionals, bankers, welfare support workers, carers, aides, sports people, protective service workers, police and defence officers, clerical and administrative support workers, sales representatives and agents, store-persons and assistants also apply for bankruptcy, as well as labourers, machine operators, drivers, students, stay at home parents, and even people on the pension.
Aravanis don’t apply a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our clients. Everyone is different, and their needs are too.
Trustees in bankruptcy
In Australia, the administration of a Bankruptcy or Personal Insolvency Agreement can only be controlled by a licensed practitioner.
This practitioner must be an industry leader when it comes to experience and knowledge, have formal qualifications in either accountancy or commercial law, and be registered with the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA).
With over 25, 14 and 13 years in the industry respectively, and having cemented a reputation as three of the good guys, Andrew Aravanis, Ronil Roy and Alexander Clark are such practitioners.
Collective human insight
The behaviour behind the brand...
If only the walls could talk… we might be insolvency ninjas, but sometimes our conversations are just downright bizarre. After all, do we really believe that hypercoloured t-shirts have a place in fashion?
The Mother of Dragons
Khaleesi/Daenerys Targaryen (although there is also respect for ‘anyone who is still alive’)
With a ratio of 3:1, collectively we prefer Star Wars over Star Trek
At a ratio of 2:1, it’s dogs all the way
Yes sir! 1.8 cups of tea or coffee are consumed by each team member every day (with coffee drinkers outranking tea drinkers 2:1)
Close call, but doughnuts came through in the end (only by two votes)
Only a third of us prefer two wheels
Who were those 5 traitors who love Winter? Summer all the way in this team
Yeah, we know … predictable
A resounding YES!
3:1 in favour of the thrill ride
It's a tie
We’re basically all scaredy-cats
Destiny’s Child/Spice Girls
Closely followed by the Beatles, Abba and Guns n Roses
Somehow The Wiggles and The Rolling Stones were a tie for votes… go figure
Watching TV in our exercise gear was also a hotly-contested choice
1970's fashion baby
Despite a love for mullets, we believe that 1970’s sideburns, moustaches and flares are sorely missed from today’s fashion pages
English, Greek, Mandarin, Cantonese, Arabic, Portuguese, Indonesian, Fiji Hindi, Fijian, Tongan, Croatian, Bengali, Korean, Newari, Hindi, Nepali, Italian, Farsi, VBA and HTML (it’s a nerd thing)
There would be a few…
• 3-day weekends (and public holidays every month)
• Free pizza for all
• The Queensland State of Origin team starts every game with a 40-point deficit
• Free transport to work
• Daylight savings all year round
We’re people first and foremost, and we want the very best for our team, our clients and our colleagues. You’ll want to work with us because you genuinely want to help people. You recognise that insolvency is more than just paperwork – it’s about the people behind that paperwork.
You’ll have the right skills, but also the right approach
The skills you have are important because you’ll need to think and solve problems.
You’ll need to lend your brain spark to colleagues, working collaboratively to elevate one another. You’ll know how to push yourself and inspire those around you. And you’ll champion both your clients and your teammates.
Being a member of team Aravanis doesn’t mean you’re just an insolvency specialist who “just does work”. The work we do matters to the people we help, and their future success depend on our collaborations.
