Fitzpatricks strengthens Victorian advice presence

Fitzpatricks Private Wealth is continuing its expansion with the addition of two Melbourne advice practices.

Chronos Private and Marasea Partners have aligned with Fitzpatricks, following a line of firms to come under its licence in the past 12 months.

Chronos Private was established in 2016 with a focus to provide more client-centric and evidence-based advice, according to partner and principal adviser, Chris Giaouris.

"I believe financial planning is not solely about investments or strategies, but more importantly it is about helping people make smart choices with their money so they can focus on more important things," Giaouris said.

"I was struggling to find a model that suited my ideas about how to best serve the client's interest. Fitzpatricks' mirrored our core values of putting the clients' needs first and foremost."

Giaouris, a financial planner since 2008, advises on superannuation, retirement strategies, personal/business risk protection, tax planning and portfolio management.

Likewise, Marasea Partners founder David Marasea said his firm aspires to help others achieve their financial and personal goals.

"Our goal is to know, understand and simplify our clients' lives. I am very pleased to have found a great cultural fit of excellence and client focus at Fitzpatricks," Marasea said.

Managing director John McMurdo said Fitzpatricks is proud to welcome the new additions.

"We welcome each to their new advisory positions at Fitzpatricks. Both advisers embody the essence of our approach: to seek culturally aligned businesses that make a difference to their clients' lives," McMurdo said.
