A key executive of Netwealth's advice business is set to depart the company following the merger between its dealer group, Financial Planning Services Australia (FPSA), and Fortnum Financial Advisers.
Netwealth Advice Group head Simon Micallef has confirmed to ifa that following completion of the merger between the company's dealer group and non-aligned licensee Fortnum on 30 October 2015, he will be leaving the company.
