About Us - Neville Ward Advice history

NW Advice Pty Limited (formerly Neville Ward Advice) was formed in 1996 with the sole charter to serve our clients.

Our pedigree is unrivalled in the Australian financial services industry. Neville Ward set the standard for commission rebates when he began Neville Ward Direct in 1988 whilst offering clients information and choice. NW Advice has extended this service offering to incorporate personalised advice, tailored for you, not for the shareholders of a bank, insurer or institution.

As we own the company, you are guaranteed continuity of service by the same professional team ensuring life time advice.

Neville Ward Direct was sold to CommSec Direct Funds in 2006. Neville Ward continues to be involved with NW Advice.
