AdviceFirst acquires Goldridge Wealth Management

15 July 2014
For immediate release

AdviceFirst acquires Goldridge Wealth Management

AdviceFirst has today announced that it has acquired the business assets of Goldridge Wealth Management, one of New Zealand’s leading wealth management groups. The sale of the business is effective immediately.

This follows the announcement on 27 May that AdviceFirst entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to manage Roost Mortgage Brokers on behalf of AMP.

Mark Ennis, Chief Executive Officer, of AdviceFirst says: “The acquisition of Goldridge Wealth Management is a great addition to the AdviceFirst ‘family’ of businesses, and bolsters the team to more than 100 across the country. As a business we’ve always been focused on growth and today’s announcement is a further continuation of that direction.

“With the added benefit of the Goldridge advisers joining our team, we see a huge value in being able to provide additional wealth management advice to our customers. The acquisition of the Goldridge business strengthens our capabilities in this space and means we can provide more New Zealanders with a full financial services proposition,” continues Ennis.

“The next few months will see us focus on a transition to combine the best of both businesses and will be communicating with further details during that period,” concludes Ennis.

Since being founded in 2008, AdviceFirst has acquired 18 organisations making it the largest financial advice business of its type in New Zealand.
