Kearney Group partners with platform leader, Netwealth.
“After going to market,” says Kearney Group CEO, Paul Kearney, “Netwealth was, quite simply, head and shoulders above their competition across all our key criteria.”
That criteria? Paul tells us the firm looked closely at each of the platforms’ core features and usability (for both clients and advisers). The platform’s support services, plans for continued investment into their technology, and pricing were also considered.
“We looked at all of the leading platforms on the market – and some of the not-so-leading ones,” Paul jokes.
“A platform can really make or break our client’s overall investment experience. So, we knew whatever we went with needed to be feature-rich, easy to use and competitively priced.”
The practice also prioritised platforms that were upfront about their plans for ongoing development of their technology.
“Products fail to keep ahead of the market all the time. Just because you’re a leader today, doesn’t mean you’ll stay that way. So we looked for a platform with explicit plans to stay ahead of the pack.”
After all the analysis, Paul tells us the Group is “very confident” that Netwealth’s reputation as market leader is well deserved and will be with them for some time.
