Our story

Local firm, global outlook

Dixon Advisory is a privately owned financial advice firm supporting over 8,000 Australian trustees to optimise their wealth for retirement through self managed super funds (SMSFs). Our support includes year-round investment, accounting, compliance and administration assistance – something we’ve been committed to for 30 years. As one of Australia’s premier SMSF providers, our team of more than 350 employees based in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and New York work together to provide a global outlook for investing.

Our heritage

Motivated by an increased demand for financial advice in the wake of a complex new superannuation system, Daryl and Kate Dixon founded Dixon Advisory in 1986. They subsequently identified a need for professional advice to support early SMSF adopters and made it a priority to focus on providing specialist SMSF knowledge. The result is our tailored SMSF support service designed to assist clients with proactive advice and support in the management of their funds.

Our founders

From the International Monetary Fund to the Federal Treasury, Daryl Dixon is a significant contributor to the global finance and investment community. While undertaking further studies at Cambridge, the economics graduate met his wife Kate, a recipient of the University Medal from the University of Queensland. Their son Alan joined Dixon Advisory in 2001, bringing his wealth of experience in chartered accounting and investment banking. Today, Alan is our USA Managing Director and CEO working alongside Australian Managing Director and CEO Chris Brown to carry on the vision of the firm.

Our experience

For three decades, our highly qualified accounting, investment, estate planning, insurance, mortgage, property and financial advice specialists have been collaborating to assess the risks and opportunities aligned with the goals of our clients. This has allowed us to develop innovative services and investment strategies designed to provide choice in different financial markets and market cycles. This approach has also helped us build a reputation for delivering quality advice and administration services.

Our commitment

Service and education underpin our commitment to clients. We are passionate about establishing enduring partnerships based on traditional client service – advisors who know you by name and understand your personal goals. Just as important is our commitment to education. We empower our clients to take control over their decision-making – supported by the global insights of our Investment Committee, which comprises financial, superannuation and investment experts who regularly share balanced market analysis across a broad range of asset classes.
