The finalisation of the acquisition of financial advice licensee Paragem also saw 4,256,991 HUB ordinary shares issued on 10 October 2017.
According to the update, Paragem “continues to experience increased interest in this segment as practices look to unwind from institutionally owned relationships and access the benefits of the managed accounts”.

“Across the market we are observing an increasing number of advisers becoming self‐licensed or joining more flexible dealer groups as demonstrated by Paragem recruiting five advice practices during 2HFY17,” the update said.
