“Prestige and Classic cars are our passion not just our business”

SME Finance Group’s original business commenced in 1978 as Michael Pratt & Associates, our Founding Director Michael Pratt was introduced to Alan Hamilton; whose family was the sole concessionaire to Australia – New Zealand for Porsche motor vehicles. The Hamilton family were the first global importer of right-hand drive Porsches outside of Germany, having a retail presence in South Yarra.
