The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
This merger is part of Apt Wealth Partners’ plans to grow and build a financial advice firm that it is “future fit to focus on helping its clients navigate the financial journey”.
With over 30 years of experience, Apt Wealth Partners has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Geelong, and currently manages over A$2bn (£1.1bn, $1.5bn, €1.23bn) in client funds.
