Shaw and Partners names three senior advisers

Non-aligned advice firm Shaw and Partners has added three new senior advisers to its team, with two joining from Macquarie.

Greg Sadler and Alasdair Burns will work in its Adelaide office. Mr Burns had been a private client adviser at Macquarie Private Wealth for 19 years, while Mr Sadler spent 16 years as a Macquarie Equities adviser.

Joining the Sydney office is Timothy Officer, who was previously at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management where he was responsible for providing investment management advice to a comprehensive book of wholesale clients, Shaw and Partners said in a statement.

Mr Sadler and Mr Burns are the latest in a string of ex-Macquarie advisers who have crossed over to Shaw and Partners since mid-2015. ifa reported in October that the firm had nabbed former "major" Macquarie adviser, Sean Conlan, for its Melbourne office.

That appointment came not long after Malcolm Cameron – who spent 20 years as an executive director and Victorian state manager for Macquarie Group – took up the role of head of Shaw and Partners' Melbourne office in September.

Shaw and Partners' head of private wealth, Earl Evans, welcomed the newest additions to the team, adding that it would boost the firm's client services.

"Many of the advisers talking to Shaw and Partners are impressed with the emphasis we place on our individual clients, our overall client service as well as our highly accessible flat management structure," Mr Evans said.


"During the past 12 months, we have been reshaping our advice business and evolving into the premier, high-touch boutique business of choice for clients, advisers and staff alike."
