11 February 2014 — 1 minute read

A specialist self-managed superannuation firm has acquired a financial services company, according to a statement released today.

Adelaide-based SMSF firm Exelsuper has acquired Oxford Financial Services, which the company stated “significantly strengthens” Exelsuper’s financial planning division.

“We identified Oxford as a great fit for Exelsuper as their philosophy has also been built on fierce independence and uncompromising values,” said Chris Harris, Exelsuper chief executive officer.

“We have completely integrated the Oxford business into Exelsuper, including all directors and advisers, which reinforces our financial planning offering in addition to our focus on helping people set up and administer self-managed superannuation funds.

“Exelsuper continues to service the growing self-managed superannuation fund marketplace, with its independent offering allowing clients to access specialist SMSF administration, advice, investment and insurance services all in one location.”

Both directors and all three financial advisers of Oxford Financial Services joined Exelsuper as part of the acquisition, according to the statement.
