Local financial planning firm, Hunter Financial, has formed a partnership agreement with newly-established Countplus subsidiary Advice389 in a deal that gives Advice389 a 40% stake in the company.
According to Hunter Financial director and CEO, Brian Kennaugh, the partnership will benefit the firm’s clients and the Hunter Financial team, long term, by allowing it access to capital as well as high calibre business advice.
He also said that the shared equity model allows Hunter Financial to stay independent and autonomous, while having the help and support of a major, listed partner.
Advice389 CEO, Pierre Kraft, said that his team had evaluated a number of firms but it soon became clear that Hunter Financial would make the ideal foundation partner.
“Hunter Financial is a highly-regarded market leader with an unparalleled reputation for providing clients with high-quality, professional financial advice,” Mr Kraft said.
Hunter Financial is a diverse financial planning company that has been operating for 12 years. Directors Brian Kennaugh and Philip Smith have almost 30 years of experience between them. They lead a team of 14 from offices at Belmont Central.
