Passion and Purpose

Our story is characterised by unwavering care and commitment to clients

It was 2001 when Rod and Tim first crossed paths professionally. Sharing a passion for advisory that stemmed from the positive impact their work had on their client's lives, their professional relationship and friendship quickly grew.


Over the coming years, they saw a shift in the financial services industry. Corporatisation, cost-cutting and outsourcing were seeing clients downgraded to customers. Technology was replacing human interactions. Cost to serve, became more important than the service itself. 

It led them to make the decision to go at it alone. To create a practice where they could preserve and prioritise the importance of the client-advisor relationship, be true partners to their clients and enjoy long-term relationships built on trust, integrity, commitment, and impact. 

Over the last decade, their shared values, respect and genuine 'like' for one another have allowed them to realise this vision and build on it.

People and relationships are our priority

We’d been financially secure for some time and managing our own investments for a while. We wanted to engage a partner – but finding someone you trust to hand your life savings to is a big thing… 
Eventually, we met Tim. We were attracted to his attitude and approach. We liked the less clients, better service ethos and investment structure and trusted they’d do what’s best by us, rather than by them. 
Eight years on, we know we know we made the right choice. We have a true partner we trust.
