We will remember 2021 as a year of extraordinary growth, both as a business and for individual team members. We are blessed by having wonderful clients and a fantastic team and there are many achievements worthy of note and celebration.
It was the best of times; it was the best of times! (apologies to Charles Dickens)
It has been a surreal year as we dodged the worst of the Covid challenge, while we continue to grow our team and our capabilities. It seems strange that amid such turmoil, many businesses are thriving.
One of our biggest achievements for the year was Chris King’s retirement. As co-founder we marked the end of a career in financial advice that saw him become one of the best advisers in Australia. Chris was sought out by business owners for his pragmatic clear thinking for which he is renowned. Thankfully, he has decided to continue working with us as an Elder of the Firm.
Chris’ retirement also helped us progress our succession plans which are now well advanced. Across the business we have ten shareholders, with Gen2 owning almost 40 percent of the business. We have also begun implementing a transition of the day-to-day leadership and management of the firm. Our executive group now owns the operational leadership and there is a planned transition under way. We believe we are very well placed to achieve our vision of becoming a multi-generational business.
While we will never pursue growth for the sake of growth, we continually grow because our services are in demand. We are very grateful to be regularly introduced to new opportunities by our professional associates and our existing clients. This year we have welcomed 50 new family groups into the Capital Partners family, and we are delighted that they have chosen us as their wealth management partner.
