"Dixon Advisory was founded by our executive chairman Daryl Dixon in 1986. The firm has advised nearly 20,000 Australians, of which about 8,700with 4,500 self-managed super fundshave an ongoing relationship with us via our SMSF service. When Daryl started the business, its primary function was the provision of fee-for-service financial advice, whereby people sought specific financial advice every few years, depending on their situation. Many of our current clients have been with us since the companys inception, and many others have joined us along the way. Its a diverse array of people whove taken a positive step and decided, I want to get involved with my life savings. I want to take ownership over my financial future. Its an intelligent client base that is fundamentally proactive; theyre not being led into an investment product. Its people who are motivated by the desire to be secure and self-funded in their retirement".
"Daryl's son, Alan Dixon, joined the company in 2001, and since that time the company has grown significantly. Alans philosophy, and the philosophy of the staff we aim to attract, is a simple one: only provide advice to clients that we would want to follow ourselves. Thats the acid test for us".
