RECENTLY established financial planning firm Boutique Planning Group has expanded its team with the recruitment of industry veteran James Doogue.
Subiaco-based Boutique opened in July and now has four financial planners.
Boutique was established by Gary Hasler, the former managing director of Home Building Society’s financial planning arm.
Mr Doogue transferred most of his financial planning practice to Home about three years ago.
After an extended break from the industry due to ill health, Mr Doogue has chosen to return to financial planning with Boutique.
"Over the past three years, I have not been able to take on clients who have been in touch with me," Mr Doogue said.
He added that Boutique was "small enough to provide the personalised financial planning service my clients prefer".
Mr Hasler said he was aiming to add another three planners and lift funds under management to about $250 million.
Home Financial Planning is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the building society following its buyout on July 18 of Mr Hasler (20 per cent) and director Ted Thacker (five per cent) for a total of $278,000.
