Philosophy and Values

Royston Capital focuses on providing advice that puts the clients’ best interests first. The provision of advice is overlaid with an in-depth understanding of the wealth objectives and taxation considerations.

We seek to preserve the real value of capital while prudently enhancing wealth over the long term. Our logo uses a stylised version of the Boag family crest to help represent the values of Royston Capital and our heritage, with each part of the family crest having a traditional meaning.

Our Crest

  • White shield symbolises ‘peace and sincerity
  • Hourglass symbolises ‘flight of time; mortality’
  • Helmet denotes ‘wisdom and security in defense; strength and protection’
  • Chevron symbolises ‘protection and faithful service’
  • Stars symbolises ‘celestial goodness; noble person; excellence’
  • Stag symbolises ‘peace and harmony’
  • Acacia leaves symbolise ‘eternal and affectionate remembrance’

The Boag family arrived in Australia in the late 1800’s and established J. Boag & Son in 1881. The Brewery on the Esk River in Tasmania remains one of Australia’s most well-known, as does the high-quality beer. Through the success of family, the Boags have ensured a legacy that will span many generations.
