Advice dealer group expands network

A financial advice dealer group is continuing its growth strategy with the addition of a Melbourne-based practice to its national network.

Joining under the Elders Financial Planning banner is Saltbush Financial Services. It is headed by financial planner Laurence Bonnici and becomes the third practice to join Elders in 2017. Saltbush provides business succession planning advice, that incorporates business and personal, as well as SMSF insurance advice.

Elders Financial Planning general manager Tony Beaven said the addition will enhance Elders' existing advice offering in the Melbourne area, and the company is looking forward to helping Bonnici achieve his vision for his business.

Bonnici commented Elders ticked a lot of boxes in terms of offering face-to-face business coaching, a robust compliance framework and a referral network opportunity to work with other Elders business units.

Beaven said it's pleasing to see Elders being recognised by advisers as a differentiated dealer group with the right structures in place to make a real difference to their business.

Elders also added financial advisers Karlee Hoog-Antink from Mackay, and Andrew Lane from Bundaberg to its dealer group network this year.
