WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Brad Scott’s recommendation came 8 years ago where our business needed complex advice on an overseas acquisition, EWM Group’s ability to engage the professionals to assist us in making the right decision to invest and set up was invaluable.

 

The confidence we gained during this process made the decision easy to engage EWM to further look after our family governance. I have no doubt that this decision was the correct one as juggling a business, family etc., and having insufficient time available to keep on top of constant new developments in the ever-changing world of investment and financial planning has insured that our family interests are taken care of.

 

EWM offer a very high level of personalised service that we had not experienced in this industry until we met Brad, the task that he and his team have taken on has seen future goals and strategies developed that have given us complete comfort for not only our immediate structure but for future generations to come. I highly recommend the services of Brad and his team.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

I have known Brad Scott for many years from attending Family Business Australia events and always find him friendly, personable and easy to get along with.

When EWM became a sponsor of FBA we asked them to give us a proposal to develop a family charter with my immediate family.  After considering several proposals we decided that Brad and his team were the best choice.

We find him professional, objective, empathetic, a good listener and very patient.  We were very happy with our finished family charter and would happily recommend Brad and the team at EWM to help families develop a charter or address any family issues they have.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Brad Scott from EWM Group was instrumental in the formation of our family governance framework. Brad's courteous and respectful manner allowed him to determine each family member's level of understanding, and ensure that all issues not matter how small or inconsequential were dealt with.

 

Brad listened carefully, and provided the critical neutral position that is a necessity in dealing with family matters. Most importantly, Brad encouraged our family to take ownership of the development of our family governance framework, and continues to provide us with relevant and timely advice in its ongoing evolution. I highly recommend Brad Scott and the services of EWM Group.

Brad Scott provided a strong framework around which we built a family office that suited our specific requirements. He was very effective in drawing out what was important for different family members and facilitated calm discussions on sensitive topics.

Brad Scott has been working with us over the last 12 months.  He has helped develop our family counsel, family rules and regulations which is something we have never had before. In addition, he has worked with the family on the uneasy topic of estate planning.

As our business reaches 35 years this year it was imperative that we focused on generational changes and ensure smooth transitions for years to come.

Brad was a calming voice which has guided us and was able to connect to all family members to ensure the process worked.

In my busy schedule, it is imperative that I have a reliable team of people around me who can work together as a cohesive advisory team while working closely with my family and I.

 

Brad Scott has been a friend and trusted adviser since 2001 and fills that role. Brad's assistance in advising, structuring and managing my investment strategy, family governance and philanthropic activities have been invaluable.

 

Add to that a comprehensive and timely reporting, bookkeeping, bill paying and administrative service and I would have no hesitation is recommending Brad and the EWM Group team.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Back in September 2017, at a Family Business Association Conference on Hamilton Island, we listened to Brad Scott do a presentation on his Company EWM.  Both my sons, also working in the business were in attendance, also.  I had for some time been thinking about the need to tidy up, organize, document and review all sorts of facets of our Family Business; we had been involved with for some 40 years. Having a comprehensive document involving Real Estate, Other Investments, Strategies, Plant & Equipment, Staffing, Long Term Planning, Mentoring for my Sons, on and on the list went on !  I felt the time was right as I was also considering stepping back from the main action of the Business.

 

Brad’s presentation came across as very suitable and appropriate for our family, so we proceeded to go ahead with him and his Group.  A huge amount of work has been undertaken over the last couple of years and we are now at a much better place to have very comprehensive, current documentation at hand and also online.  We have Quarterly Meetings for just the Family Members, Advisory Meetings with our Management People and a mixture of both twice a year for total Involvement and decision making.

 

The benefit is 2 fold at least; Investments are monitored and improved to suit our family and all sorts of documents are in one place in case of need.  Plus, Brad is an active and capable advisor and influencer on our future direction alongside with our own Business Advisor in conjunction.  The Team at EWM are well on top of all things happening and very co-operative.
