Non-aligned wealth group Omniwealth has appointed a new managing partner and partner to its business advisory team as the company looks to place more focus on its SME clients.
In a statement, managing director of Omniwealth Matthew Kidd said Duncan Barber has been appointed to the role of managing partner of business advisory and Kelly Reedman has been appointed as a partner.
Prior to joining Omniwealth's business advisory team, both Mr Barber and Ms Reedman worked for Grange Business Partners.
Commenting on the appointments, Mr Kidd said non-aligned wealth and financial planning advisory groups "need an edge" to win and retain small business owners as clients.
"SME owners and professionals are time-poor and we are seeing a good response to our one-stop service for accounting, financial planning, mortgage and finance and legal services.
"It is becoming more common to have a client come in for the day and have our professionals work on every component – from their finances and assets to their business to their SMSF and trusts to their retirement/succession plans," he said.
An advice software and platform solutions provider has announced the new tool.
Some financial advisers will have to shake up how they engage with investor clients, according to an asset manager.
A financial services firm has come up with an innovative approach to address the adviser shortage problem.
