Brisbane boutique Hunter Green has recruited a compliance expert who spent decades within the AMP advice network.
The licensee has hired Peter Nicholson as an additional responsible manager as it grows its network of authorised representatives, currently sitting at 30 individual advisers
Mr Nicholson is currently compliance manager at fellow Brisbane boutique firm Tynans – a role he will retain while acting as RM at Hunter Green – and prior to that spent 35 years at AMP in various positions within the financial advice arm, including management roles.
Hunter Green will continue working with compliance consultant Brett Walker of Smart Compliance, but has taken the decision to bring additional expertise in-house in addition to Mr Walker’s services, reflecting the significant role of compliance support for non-aligned dealers.
“As a licensee, the service provided to our authorised representatives that we focus nearly all of our attention on is compliance,” Hunter Green managing director Greg Hunter told ifa.
“Our advisers are mostly highly experienced practitioners wanting to ensure compliance is built into their existing business systems, so it's about customised compliance, not a ‘it has to be this way’ approach.
“I say to our advisers: ‘you're the professional, it's your business, your brand and your clients – we are here to help you do it your way’.”
Mr Hunter is also the current secretary of the Boutique Financial Planners lobby group.
