Private Client Investment Services

At Royston Capital we offer investment advice in a style and delivery method that suits your requirements


We will work with you to set the overall family wealth objectives and investment strategy. The investment strategy will be agreed with you and reviewed on an annual basis and may include equities, fixed income securities, managed funds, property syndication and derivatives. We will provide regular investment reporting and annual audits of the portfolio for your compliance. The discretionary nature of the portfolio allows us to act efficiently on opportunities as they happen within the framework of the agreed investment strategy.


We will wok in conjunction with you but ultimately guide most decisions. The investment strategy will be agreed with you and reviewed on an annual basis and may include equities, fixed income securities, managed funds and property syndication. Ongoing communication between parties is critical for the effective implementation of recommendations. You and your family will be able to evaluate opportunities based on our advice and education. We will meet with you on an agreed basis to review proposed transactions, recent agreed transactions and other activities.


If you and your family wish to retain absolute control, we are able to provide general and ad-hoc advice. This style of service is reactive to your requests and market activity.

SIV - Significant Investor Visa

In 2012 the Australian Government announced the introduction of the Significant Investor Visa (SIV). The Visa is designed to attract overseas investment and provide a streamlined pathway to permanent residence in Australia for business people from around the world.

Royston Capital is a provider of investment advice and can assist clients with the establishment of appropriate investment structures under Australian law. Our family office heritage equips us with the experience and ability to coordinate all the necessary services and advice to maintain your compliance with the SIV requirements.

If you are applying for a Significant Investor Visa 188 you will need to invest at least AUD$5 million. Royston Capital can assist with your investment obligations which must comply with the strict regulations.
