Crestone Wealth Management has appointed six new investment advisers to its Brisbane office, focusing on professional advice for high net worth (HNW) and ultra-high net worth (UHNW) Australians.
The new appointments brought the Brisbane office to 21 staff, while the total national adviser base was 91.
The six appointments were:

Michael Tritton, head of advisory for NSW, QLD and SA said: “The new advisers are welcome additions to our growing team. Crestone offers global, multi- asset class portfolio construction and management solutions and we are confident the expertise these six advisers possess will complement our existing business and offering.”
