Enjoy the benefits

of a well-run business.


To grow a profitable and sustainable business, the right systems, tools and processes are required, together with the skills to run a business. Practice management is about equipping the business owner to deal with the challenges of running an advisory business and achieve optimal results both now and in the future.

Practice management helps the business owner attain goals such as more time, increased profit, increased productivity, expanded employee skills or improved overall morale. It develops a business to support the owner’s personal and business goals. And, as a well-run financial advisory business has excellent potential to be sustained by a successor, the business becomes a saleable asset with capital value.

Our practice management programme is based on the international best business practice principles of E-Myth Worldwide and customised for local use. It incorporates sound business processes that integrate with FAIS compliance requirements.

Presented in a forum designed to stimulate knowledge-sharing among independent financial advisors (IFAs) and industry colleagues, our programme helps our clients develop solutions most suited to their business. Attendees are able to immediately implement unique strategies and processes directly into their business. Our consultants are also at hand to help identify opportunities for development within businesses.
