Commenting further on the appointments, Crole said, "Sequoia is focussed on providing multiple services to its advice community that are delivered by industry professionals with extensive financial services industry experience and expertise".

"Our objective is to utilise scale to drive down the cost of providing advice and the recent acquisition and incorporation of Docscentre Legal Pty Ltd (previously known as Topdocs Legal Pty Ltd) is a high-profile confirmation of Sequoia's commitment to enhancing its adviser focussed services and mission."

The three new appointments are –

Barry Strapps: Regional Manager for South Australia and Western Australia.  He joined InterPrac Financial Planning Pty Ltd (InterPrac) last year and has had an extensive career with Centrepoint, Asteron and AMP assisting advisers and accountants to build their businesses.

Barry will be based in Adelaide.

Looking to the future and in particular 2022, Crole said Sequoia will continue to seek acquisition opportunities of financial advice and wealth management businesses that are cashflow positive, profitable and merging them into the group.

Currently, Sequoia has over 20 businesses spread across four divisions – Wealth, Professional Services, Equity Markets and Direct to Consumer.
