ASB Securities Advisory Team Doubles

ASB Securities Advisory Team Doubles - Signaling Rapid Expansion

Statement made by Tim Preston, ASB Securities Managing Director

ASB Securities signaled further expansion today by appointing five of New Zealand’s leading Financial Advisor-Sharebrokers to its existing team.

Rebecca Bayliss, Colin Beckermann, Rupert Lister, Kirsty Shiach, and Ian Witters double the size of ASB Securities’ existing team which now has an average of almost 14 years experience across multiple markets and products. .

The five all have considerable experience as sharebrokers and financial advisors, some with formidable reputations of being among the best in the market..

Taking on five new advisors at one time is a clear indication of the growth we are experiencing with the return of private investors to the sharemarket. There are two distinct markets, one that requires an internet discount service and one that demands personal advisory services. ASB Securities recognises the two markets with its ‘clicks and mortar’ approach and believes there are cross benefits in providing a full range of services.

The taking on of new staff with such formidable reputations sends a strong message to the market as the appointments go against the current industry trends of down sizing and service reduction.

ASB Securities was able to attract the top advisors due to its world-class technology backing, its innovative approach to advisory services and its market share growth. The Advisor-Sharebrokers are in a position to provide better service and advice to clients through ASB Securities envied market leading internal computer system.

Transactions at ASB Securities have trebled in the last 12 months with exceptional growth in a number of its services, including the cash management account and fixed interest investments.
ASB Securities’ website provides comprehensive company research for all Australasian companies and is the only provider with the Fast Alert service which sends price updates to email, pager or mobile phones.
