Our Approach.

At Lansdowne Financial we are building a business that we believe is truly unique.

We are not a firm of solicitors or accountants looking to sell additional services.

Rather we network with our own trusted advisers built up from operating businesses in Australia over the past 30 years, and then refer you to whoever we believe can best meet your needs.

Our business is about providing you with the commercial and business support to help you grow and succeed in the Australian environment.

The Lansdowne Advantage.

  • A Flat Fee

    Our fees are competitive and based on a flat rate per annum. Occasionally, business needs dictate a heavier involvement or greater support from Lansdowne, however no additional fees are added. No hidden extras, no surprises.
  • After Hours Support

    Time-zones in Australia are at best difficult compared to the rest of the world. Lansdowne has the capacity to provide support out of hours and can generally find communication windows within normal business hours in European, US and Asian markets. Whilst most communication is via email, phone/video conferencing can be easily accommodated.
  • Bank Account Opening

    Opening a bank account has become particularly difficult for overseas-based companies coping with ever-increasing regulation due to anti-money-laundering and counter-terrorism concerns. We will take the lead in navigating through the maze of complexity that can dramatically slow the process of getting your business established.
  • Mailbox Services

    Lansdowne has a physical address in North Sydney Business District that can be made available to all clients requiring mailbox forwarding and a physical address for their Australian operation.
  • 24 Hour Cost-Effective Foreign Exchange Transactions

    Whether transferring funds to Australia or repatriating overseas, mainstream banks charge high transaction fees in both directions. Apart from their stated fees and charges, the exchange rates used are often several percentage points away from the true spot rate.

    We partner with a leading independent FX clearing house with a proven track history in cost-effective foreign exchange transactions. Initially focused on Australian markets, they are rapidly expanding with offices now in six countries strategically located around the globe and offering FX dealings in 55 currencies.

The Lansdowne Culture.
