Brian Boggs is the Managing Director of Adviser Asset Solutions Pty Ltd and M&A Consultancy. He is also a Principal of Information, Learning and Implementation (ili). Over the course of a 30 year period of hands-on financial advising,
Brian created and built a multi award winning advice business and along the way, picked up numerous awards for best practice and the prestigious Adviser of the Year Award.
Hailing from New Zealand, Brian moved to Australia at the age of 29 and immediately set about building up his financial advising business with entrepreneurial flair. Rejecting the old rules of the industry he introduced a visionary zeal to his fledgling business while at the same time remaining careful to create a caring family environment for his employees. In building his business he was particularly adept at relating to small to medium size business owners and accrued a wealth of knowledge and experience which he reinvested with his carefully selected client base.
His ability to build, grow and sell his own business reflected itself in the success he engineered for many of his business owner clients. Focussing closely on this market placed Brian in a premier position to understand the issues advisers face and the strategies they need to consider. Always the one to lead by example, he took the leadership role in his stride and guided his clients along the pathway to financial independence. Several years ago he sold off his practice at a very generous return on investment and to this day says he is amazed by the level of the trust placed in him by clients and feels deeply grateful for his experiences.
Always one to recognise opportunities, Brian has since busied himself first in the role of adviser to and then subsequently investor in, a new business called Information, Learning and Implementation (iLi), a provider of specialist master courses for advisers across a broad spectrum of professions in financial services.he is also a co founder and director of the leading minds academy an on line forum aimed at helping advisers achieve best practise.
A great story teller and popular speaker throughout his adopted country Australia, in South Africa and his country of birth New Zealand, Brian has delivered keynote addresses at several international conferences on behalf of clients including AMP, ING and AON. An opening conference speaker and Master of Ceremonies round out his experiences from the podium. Brian Boggs Business Specialist
