Consultum head joins non-aligned advice group

A former chief executive of the IOOF-owned dealer group has come onboard as executive director of an up-and-coming non-aligned licensee.

In a statement, AVSW Financial Services said it had appointed Joe Botte as its new executive director.

Mr Botte was CEO of IOOF-aligned group Consultum Financial Advisers until January this year.

“Joe is a very committed and effective executive with an extensive financial services career and reputation for delivering significant business results,” AVSW CEO Stuart Abley said. 


“His appointment reflects the ASVWFS’s commitment to our network of advice practices and the very important contribution he will provide in supporting the group’s long-term strategic business aspirations and marketplace offering. With Joe’s extensive financial services experience and strong track record, together with the benefit of having successfully worked together previously, I’m confident ASVWFS is well-positioned to be the AFSL of choice in the post FOFA era.”

“As executive director, I will be able to contribute to the strategic direction of group, but also to develop and deliver practice management tools, technologies and back office systems for our national advice network, Mr Botte said.

“Most importantly, it was an opportunity to join a progressive, boutique AFSL with no legacy issues or anchors to the past by being technology, product and investment platform agnostic.
