Financial advice firm PSK Financial Services has acquired Sydney-based Socius Wealth Management as part of its growth plans.
Socius founder and partner John D'Alessandri said that completing the acquisition amid COVID-19 was challenging.
"What became obvious in the time we were spending with PSK during the process, was that our two businesses were actually very much alike, we hold similar beliefs in many things, and this helped us overcome the obstacles that came up," D'Alessandri said.
"We know we have found a very good home for our clients - equally we are also pleased that all of our staff will be coming across and joining the PSK group which will open a wide range of new opportunities for them - we are all very excited about the move."
