Capstone is a leading, national independently-owned licensee with a complete range of back office support services to help you to grow your business.
Your success is our focus, and to support your business we offer a range of support services usually only found in large institutionally-owned licensees. Our in-house support services include:
We offer four levels of authorisation (called “tiers”). This allows you to choose the level of support that’s best suited to your business and advice needs.
You may wish to access additional support and services as your business grows. With Capstone this is made easy as you can move between tiers as your business and advice needs change – allowing you the flexibility to scale our services to your needs.
When you’re looking for a licensee, it’s important to choose a partner that has the support and resources you need to deliver quality advice, solutions and services to your clients. At Capstone our goal is to provide you with the support you need to deliver quality advice and achieve business growth.
Accountants who provide SMSF advice must hold an AFSL or authorisation under an AFS Licence. At Capstone we are helping accountants right across Australia to make the transition into the new regulatory environment with advice, guidance, business transition support, and ongoing professional development.
We understand the challenges faced by financial advisers and accountants and deliver a highly personalised service, providing tailored support according to your business and advice needs.
We offer four authorisation tiers coupled with a full range of in-house support services to help your business grow.
We are privately owned and there is no shareholding. If the ability to offer your clients holistic financial advice is important to you, choosing a licensee who is independently-owned simply makes sense.
