The accounting and advice network has adopted a Sydney firm, adding three advisers to its count.
Count Financial has gained Northern Sydney-based StrategyOne Advice Network, continuing on its growth strategy as it has appointed 16 firms since the start of the year.
StrategyOne was previously part of the Fitzpatricks network before moving to Count Financial. It has a team of nine staff, including three advisers.
Andrew Kennedy, chief advice officer at Count Financial commented StrategyOne is a good cultural fit for the network.
StrategyOne managing director Virginia Heyer added the licensee model at Count Financial and its commitment to advice had been key deciding factors.
“The fact that Count Financial is not owned by a retail product manufacturer is important, because we wanted to work with a licensee partner that has client best interest at the forefront, rather than product distribution,” Ms Heyer said.
“Given that we also have a professional year (PY) candidate in our firm, Count Financial’s well-structured PY framework supports new entrants to the industry and will help us immensely.”
