Pros: When I started with this firm management did a great job training me for the position and being sure to answer any questions or concerns I had. Employees were also very helpful in the firm and never had any issues with employees.

Cons: The pay for this firm could be a lot better. Starting out it isn't too bad, but there isn't much room for growth and advancement. Those in upper management have been there for years and don

To be the best in everything it does the firm recognises that it needs to draw upon a broad pool of talent so that we reflect the diverse spectrum of our clients and we continue to be forward thinking in delivering innovative solutions to our clients.

Summer associate program


Our summer associate program is designed to ensure you receive maximum exposure to the core areas within Wealth Planning, such as Funds, Investments, Tax and Trusts; Family and Business and International. As there is a good deal of overlap in these areas, many practicing in the field have at some point in their careers spent time doing work representative of all three areas. As such, we prefer not to operate a formal rotational program, instead work is centrally coordinated by the Summer Associate Program Leader to ensure that all our summer associates receive a good variety of work.
