Our History

Ord Minnett is rich in history. Our origins date back to 1872, making us one of Australia’s oldest wealth firms.

The Ord Minnett (pronounced ‘minute’) name stems from its founders, Charles Ord and Jack Minnett, who met in the Australian Imperial Force during the Second World War. Together, they built the foundations of an advice business that has become a highly respected name in the Australian investment landscape.
