A unique value proposition for accounting firms
Easton Investments is developing a significant national association of market leading, high quality accounting firms and wealth management businesses across Australia ~ Supported by a unique, relevant and valuable distribution model that just makes sense.
The advantage that Easton brings is its ability to contribute capital, facilitate growth, deliver enhanced service capabilities and support business improvement.
Easton is intent on selectively building a network
of like-minded firms and helping those firms to become better businesses
Easton's capital investment and central support will provide member firms with a competitive advantage and the opportunity to achieve market leadership
Support to member firms will include:
Training (both technical and soft skills)
Organic growth strategies
Supporting service lines with strong growth potential
Expanded advisory capability
An enhanced ability to retain and attract new staff and new clients
The Easton business model involves minority ownership in firms, with a willingness to own up to 49% of a practice as part of succession planning, but also a willingness to reduce that interest as young partners are appointed. In this way, Easton can facilitate orderly succession within a firm.
Easton is uniquely placed to offer firms an enhanced brand profile, professional and practice management support, organic growth and an expanded service capability, as well as access to capital to fund future growth and succession.
Accounting firms need an orderly succession process.
