In early 2004, Stewart Group elected to engage independent expertise to advise our Board of Directors. The concept of an Advisory Board was sourced through our association with leading international firms and our access as members to the New Zealand Institute of Directors.

Advisory Board members are selected for their integrity and compatibility with our values. They are expected to use their best judgement and expertise to offer sound advice and their collective opinion to the directors and management of Stewart Group and the associated company, Boutique Advisers Alliance.

We greatly appreciate the guidance received from the past advisory board members John Newland, Andy Train, Wayne Startup, Jonathan Bell and Chris O'Reilly.

Our advisory board members:

  Peter Mancell   Peter joined Stewart Group’s Advisory Board in September 2015. Peter is the Managing Director of  Mancell Financial Group  based in Burnie, Tasmania. He provides strategic planning advice to  FYG Planners  for Independent, fee only advisers. Peter is also the current Chair of the Global Association of Independent Advisers.   View profile
