About Us

index_buildingAxis is a privately owned Australian company that has many years experience in providing superannuation, financial planning, broking, investment and insurance advice. Axis represents an opportunity for you to utilise this experience in enabling you to build an improved financial position.

Axis Investment Centre is licensed under Australian Financial Services Licence No 288193 to provide advice on a wide range of financial products, including superannuation, direct shares, managed funds and risk insurance.

We are Queensland owned and not part of any group of companies; nor are we aligned with any other financial institution. We have a long history with an office presence in Queensland of more than 40 years. We have offices in Brisbane and Townsville, and personally service clients in Townsville, Cairns, Mackay and throughout South East Queensland. Over that time, we have built up and assisted a client base of several thousand, many of whom have been with Axis for many years.

We measure our success by the longevity of our relationships with our clients. Similarly, our clients measure their relationship with Axis against the value of our advice, and the successful implementation and outcomes of that advice.
Axis Investment Centre is a Member of the Association of Financial Advisors.
