One thing we know about the XY Community is they love hearing from other Financial Advisors and listening to what they’ve been up to, and one very interesting Advisor who is well worth hearing from is the ‘grandad’ of XY Adviser – Dean Holmes (LinkedIn:/mrdeanholmes/).

Dean is the Co-Founder and Wealth Advisor at Absolute Wealth Advisors ( He also supports four other innovative Financial Advice businesses under his AFSL The Wealth Network ( When it comes to taking on new advisors under his license ‘wing’, Dean says choosing the right people is crucial; there must be an alignment of vision and an alignment of values between both parties because the decisions you make about people in the front end of your world ultimately affect the decisions you make within your businesses later on.

In this episode you’ll learn how to find the right people to join your organisation, the benefit of incorporating a business coaching program into your organisation (and the one Dean uses), the importance of building trust with prospective clients and the different ways Dean has watched advisors in his network do this and the outcome Dean and Clayton would like to see from the Royal Commission.
