What we do

As a a boutique full-service licensee, we provide support to a vast network of financial advisers across Australia.

Founded in 2006, we have firmly established ourselves as the licensee of choice for growth focused practices requiring personalised and tailored support across a range of services including practice management, marketing, software, research, compliance and professional  development.

To cater for your level and expertise, we offer a range of authorisations from specialist authorisation to full authorisation.

Our approach is hands-on and we will work with you and your practice to help you build and manage a sustainable advice business while meeting the demands of regulatory change.

Our affiliations with the Association of  Financial Advisers and the Financial Planning Association, not only gives you access to additional training and development opportunities but provides you  with a forum to voice your views on various regulatory issues.

And being part of the IOOF group enables us to tap in to the resources of one of Australia's largest non-bank owned financial service companies.

At Consultum, we offer the best of both  worlds – the personalised and tailored service you would expect from a boutique  group, and the backing and resources of the larger IOOF group. Together, this helps us deliver a professional level of tailored service to you, our advisers.
