About Us

Private Capital Advisers is a boutique, owner-operated wealth management and accounting firm based in Cottesloe, Western Australia.

Financial Planning

Our team of financial advisers specialise in helping individuals, families and not-for-profits prudently manage wealth to improve their financial well-being. Managing significant capital is, after all, more involved. Even subtle changes in your financial direction can make a big difference long-term. And that is why we remain foremostly advisers.

By that, we mean we are not tied to any obligation other than to help you discern the best possible course of action (a plan that makes the most of your financial opportunities and also lowers risk).

We achieve that through evidence-based research and by understanding the goals that matter most to you, your family or organisation. Where we go beyond advising is by closely partnering with you to implement and manage that deliberate plan.

Side by side, we help you create the financial surety and freedom in your life and organisation so you can focus on what matters. It’s a more considered and personalised approach.


You want to stay on top of your financial affairs, but you can’t do it all alone. There are many regulations and choices to consider. And not enough time for admin. You need an expert who cares about helping you reach your goals, someone you can call on and count on — so you can become proactive, not reactive.

We are accounting experts that can help you get the most out of your financial position in a timely, hassle-free manner. But we’re more than that. Our team of Chartered Accountants are here for you every step of the way as a strategic ally and manager, too. We can guide you to become self-sufficient by creating processes that automate previously time-consuming tasks. Or, we can take care of everything.

Whether you’re a business owner, about to retire, or setting up the right structures for the first time, when you partner with us, you don’t have to worry about keeping up-to-date with your financial situation. You can take the extra time and money you just saved and focus on the things you find meaningful.

Together, we can tie together every aspect of your financial, accounting, taxation and business needs.

Our Financial Planning Process

Every person, family and organisation are, of course, different. We consequently make a point of understanding you — where you are now and where you ultimately want to be — so we can tailor solutions accordingly, like how to best upsize the family home, prepare your children for higher education, manage an inheritance or transition to retirement. It’s about building the necessary foundations, which is why we’ve designed a process to facilitate that. Below is a summary:
