Sophie Grace recently assisted Hope Partners Pty Ltd (“Hope Partners”) to obtain an Australian Financial Services Licence (“AFSL”) to issue and act as an investment manager for wholesale managed investment schemes. The AFSL application was lodged in September 2019 and approved in May 2020.
Hope Partners specialises in investing in childcare properties across Australia. The granting of the AFSL has allowed Hope Partners to commence raising funds from wholesale clients for the purposes of investing in childcare properties and facilities across Australia.
We asked the Hope Partners team a few questions about their experience working with us. Hope Partners found the Sophie Grace team “highly professional, friendly and compassionate with brilliant communication”. When asked about the application journey, Hope Partners said “it was a long journey but with Melody’s professional assistance, we achieved our goal”. The Hope Partners team was also well-prepared throughout the application process as “Melody had explained all the potential risks and opportunities to us (Hope Partners) along the way”. Lastly, when questioned about whether Hope Partners would do anything differently during the application process they explained to the Sophie Grace team that they “would go directly to Sophie Grace for a one stop service”.
