Our history

Providing clear, reliable and valuable advice to Australians for nearly 100 years.

Founded in 1924

Our business is an award-winning organisation with a history dating back to 1924 when Shadforths Limited, was established in Hobart. In 2008 Shadforth Financial Group was established through the merger of 14 specialist advisory firms. These firms were united by a vision and passion for client focussed advice.

We’re now a national network of private wealth advisers and one of Australia's leading financial advisory firms.

Today we’re one of Australia’s largest wealth advisory firms

IOOF Group acquired Shadforth Financial Group in 2014. Today we operate as a standalone firm within IOOF, benefiting from the scale and capabilities that a larger financial services company offers, but maintaining our own distinctive philosophy and culture.

As we are no longer operating as a group of companies, in 2020 we dropped the ‘Financial Group’ from our name and became known as Shadforth.
