A ‘Boutique Financial Adviser’ is a title that is given to industry professionals who offer their clients financial solutions from the entire market, rather than just one supplier or business. Peacheys Investment Services Pty Ltd can offer superannuation and insurance advice from a variety of suppliers, personalised specifically for your particular situation.
We are a member of the Financial Planners Association of Australia, or the FPA, which is Australia’s leading professional community of financial planners. The FPA requires its members to commit to a code of ethics and professional conduct, so you know you’re in safe hands with an FPA member.
Our industry is also governed by the regulatory body ASIC (Australian Securities & Investments Commission). ASIC is an Australian Government agency that ensures the fairness and transparency of Australia’s financial markets, as well as educating investors in financial literacy.
