Stanford Brown today announced that Nicky Boustred has joined the firm as a Private Wealth Adviser and Shareholder.

Ms Boustred joins Stanford Brown after running her own boutique financial planning business, Nixon Boustred Advisory, for more than a decade. During that time, she has built strong and enduring client relationships which have enabled her to provide highly customised advice that helps clients achieve financial wellbeing.

Vincent O’Neill, CEO of Stanford Brown, said: “Nicky is a wonderful addition to the Stanford Brown team. Her professional, boutique and technically rigorous approach are a natural fit and I’m confident both she and her Clients will be entirely at home at Stanford Brown. We welcome Nicky’s valued and longstanding Clients to our family and look forward to complementing her expertise and premium offering with even greater resources and additional services.”

Nicky Boustred said: “What motivates me every day is the trust my Clients place in me and the role I play in helping them achieve the future they want. As our business evolved and founder Peter Nixon retired last year, I’ve been looking for a partner to provide the depth and resources so I can spend more time with Clients and offer them excellent advice with a supportive, professional team behind me.

“After a thorough search, I am delighted to have found in Stanford Brown a boutique firm which embodies similar values, rigour and service to me. Joining the team gives me access to deep expertise across highly relevant areas for my Clients, including a top-level investment committee, tax and accounting services and personal insurances,” added Ms Boustred.

A qualified Chartered Accountant, Ms Boustred worked in financial services for many years in both Johannesburg and Sydney before moving into a career in financial planning. She commenced her career in the Audit then Corporate Finance divisions of Ernst & Young in South Africa before moving to Australia in a Mergers and Acquisitions role with technology company, Dimension Data. She was motivated to move from her corporate career into financial advice after establishing a women’s financial literacy and education business, WiseWomen.

Nicky is married to Andrew and has three adult children. Outside of work, when she’s not spending time with her family, Nicky enjoys ocean swimming, yoga and travel.
