Our History

A Smith & Associates driven by the partners Tony Smith and Leon Maddern commenced in Gisborne from February of 2004, servicing residents and businesses in the Macedon Ranges, Bacchus Marsh and beyond, we continue to grow steadily.

We have an office in Bacchus Marsh for appointments only that we have offered to our clients since June in 2004.

In 2008 we recognised the importance of a trusted financial advisor. Therefore came the birth of Smith & Maddern Financial Planning Pty Ltd, giving us the ability to provide you with a complete advisory service.

With the continued growth of the A Smith clientele and their needs seen the requirement for a Lending and Finance Brokers branch so the creation of Custom Lending Pty Ltd was developed in November of 2014.

In September of 2016 we moved into our current purpose built premises at 45 Hamilton Street, Gisborne, this move has given us the boost in space and visibility and clearly reflects the success, dedication and professional reputation developed over many years.

A decision at this time was made to rename all existing entities and merge together under one easy accessible banner to assist our current and future clients in understanding the services we provide.

The creation of “Range Financial Group” includes the following;

  • Range Partners (Formerly A Smith & Associates Pty Ltd)
  • Range Financial Advisors (Formerly Smith & Maddern Financial Services)
  • Range Lending Services (Formerly Custom Lending)
