Culture is core - we’re a Family

The wealth management industry has changed significantly since Thornton (Group) was founded in 2000, but our mandate of ensuring future wealth for our clients and their families hasn’t.

We have certainly endured those external changes as well as some of our own, but it has made us more resilient and better at anticipating and managing change. We have nurtured a culture that has empathy for our clients when the winds are blowing, we have always aimed to be that strong bridge to ensure the momentum continues for when it’s turbulent out there.

Our culture didn’t come about by accident, it’s our underlying values that attract the right people with the right skills. Each addition to the team compliments and strengthens our culture. Every client and their family comes with a unique set of circumstances and those circumstances change as they move through life, the only way to manage this is with a tailored and flexible strategy.
