Privately-owned wealth and asset management firm Elston Group has established an advisory board as it navigates the seismic shifts in the sector and chases growth.

Elston founding shareholder and executive director Andrew McKie told Street Talk on Wednesday that the firm had hired three senior corporate types – Peter Wade, Melissa Armstrong and Andrew Chick – as the first members of its advisory board.

Wade has almost 40 years of experience in the financial services sector, including at Goldman Sachs JBWere, JPMorgan and CBA. Similarly Armstrong has held senior roles in leadership and human resource management while Chick’s 20-year career at Royal Bank of Scotland saw him rise to the position of chief executive for Australia and New Zealand.

“It’s important to challenge ideas and opinions. It’s something that happens within our investment team every day,” McKie said.

“We encourage a culture of continuous improvement, because it’s a healthy dynamic to enable a business to survive and thrive in an industry with constant change,

“Now we get to have that at an advisory board level, and we know it’s going to have a positive impact on our decision making.”

Elston manages $2.2 billion in assets and is one of the country’s largest providers of managed account solutions.
