Pointmade is Australia’s pre-eminent dedicated family advisory firm.
Our firm was founded by David Smorgon, a member of one of Australia’s best known business families. When Smorgon Consolidated Industries was sold off in 1995, it ended a remarkably successful 70-year history that spanned four generations. And it marked one of the lowest points of David’s life. This difficult experience, and the lack of high quality, independent support available, ignited his passion for advising other families. Hence Pointmade.
Today, we are a boutique advisory company, focused on helping families navigate and transcend the often complex multi-generational dynamics and decisions at the intersection of family, business and ownership.Read more
A unique set of capabilities
We see the “health” of the family as crucial, which means a core role is to help families function in a united and harmonious fashion. After all, most wealth transitions fail due to a breakdown in communications and trust.
That said, as experienced business leaders, family office executives and advisors, psychologists and subject matter experts, we also often act as a conduit for ensuring the family enterprise or financial assets perform across multiple generations.
