Embracing sustainability across our business

Sustainability, and its notion of endurance, means the world to us. We live by it in both business strategy and ecological responsibility. We are proud to always stay relevant by analysing, anticipating and making sound decisions. DPM enters the sustainable era: our Melbourne office is proudly 100% Green Power Certified.

What we stand for

These values guide our business, our brand and philosophy.
They are ingrained in our culture and everything we do.

Expertise first

Having helped thousands of medical professionals achieve financial peace of mind over the last 50 years, we’re confident in our know-how and ability to help them achieve their financial goals throughout their professional lifecycle, from student to private practice and everything in between.

Advice-driven

DPM is a non-aligned business. We access appropriate products from various providers. Our advice is fair-minded and focused on enabling our clients to make informed decisions.

Customer centricity

We designed our financial services offering around our knowledge of what medical professionals will need and benefit from as they progress through their careers. Our team of specialists ensure each client’s personal situation and goals take priority in the advice provided.

Adding value

As a business, we genuinely listen to our clients’ feedback and continually strive to improve the client experience. We take pride in building on our service offering to better suit clients’ needs, identifying more efficient ways of doing business and simply making our clients’ lives a little easier.
