Australian Unity acquires Bridgeport Financial Services


On 1 March 2018, Australian Unity Personal Financial Services Limited (Australian Unity) acquired the business of Bridgeport Financial Services Pty Ltd., (Bridgeport).

Last year, Bridgeport’s parent company, Netwealth, announced it would sell its financial advice subsidiaries to focus on its platform and managed account solutions.

Netwealth’s key priority in looking for an acquirer for Bridgeport was to ensure that existing clients and staff would be well cared for. 

As a result Netwealth chose Australian Unity because of our focus on caring for clients, our long track record in delivering customers the highest quality financial advice and our strong and trusted position in the market.
