Genuine Advantage

Principal Partners

In a world where so much is the same, it makes sense to choose a financial adviser that is different from the rest. Principal Partners is a privately owned financial planning firm with a hands-on approach to wealth management. Working by your side, we put your needs first and proactively seek to build a solid asset base that will meet your financial and lifestyle goals.

The origins of Principal Partners date back to 1980 and in 1999 a joint venture was formed with BDO (Previously Horwarth) to provide wealth management solutions to their clients. Throughout this period the core business partners have remained together. In early 2012 when Grant Thornton acquired BDO Accounting practice in Melbourne, this enabled the directors of Principal Partners to acquire the wealth Management arm of BDO and implement our business vision with greater clarity.

With over three decades of experience, we’ve learned a lot about people and what drives them. This knowledge underpins each of our wealth creation strategies and sets us apart from others in the field.


Creating lasting wealth means achieving specific outcomes in line with your lifestyle and financial goals. Principal Partners works with you to develop a flexible, strategic financial plan that supports your current and future needs. Through Ongoing management, monitoring and measuring, we help maintain your financial security using a consistent approach and proven principles.
