First Financial, a former financial services division of Crowe Horwath First Financial, has joined BT Select network to offer enhanced services to clients.
Established in 2013, First Financial currently has US$1.1 billion in funds under advice, 60 staff, including 17 financial planners, four lending and finance advisers, and a self-managed super fund (SMSF) administration team.
Chris White, managing director of First Financial, said that the decision to partner with BT Select was the capacity to transition practices.
"Back office efficiency is critical for us and BT Select’s approach to embedding experienced staff within our team during this crucial phase is a big plus for us," White added.
Launched in 2012, BT Select has attracted 67 practices with approximately US$7.5 billion funds under advice.
BT Select offers licensing solutions, a range of practice solutions and access to a support network of like-minded advisers.
