williamgrant > Meet the Team

Make a visit to williamgrant’s Subiaco office and you’ll soon realise this isn’t your run-of-the-mill financial planning business.

Gone is the frosty corporate reception, replaced by a warm welcome and authentic conversations about you, your family and your financial goals.
You won’t hear how well respected father-son duo Bill and David Jarrott are within the industry – or about the extended team’s combined 60 years’ financial experience – you will simply see it in action.

The close-knit team doesn’t just excel professionally; comprised of a WA Football Hall of Fame inductee and long-distance runner to name a few – it is safe to say that the team lives the quintessential WA lifestyle and it’s that down-to-earth sense of community, passion and drive that has seen williamgrant become one of WA’s financial planning leaders today
