To give you the best advice possible, we have developed a process that relies on your involvement. Our team will help you understand why we make the recommendations we do while respecting your valuable time.
1. Discovery Meeting
Once you have contacted our office and spoken with one of our senior advisers, you will be invited to attend a Discovery Meeting. This is a great opportunity to get to know your financial adviser in a relaxed environment. Prior to the Discovery Meeting, we will ask you to complete a copy of our Personal/Business Financial Profile, which will supply us with the information we need to discuss strategy ideas with you. We will start scoping out your needs and identify opportunities to get your financial house in order. You will have the opportunity to explore our expertise, our services and our team.
At the end of the meeting, we should have a clear scope of your situation. From here we will make a decision together on whether there is value in you taking the next step and attending an in-depth Concept Meeting. The initial fee for a Discovery Meeting is $330 (inc. GST) and takes approximately one hour.
2. Concept Meeting
Before the Concept Meeting, we will get to work researching and preparing model strategies tailored to your circumstances. We will conduct a thorough assessment of the following areas (where applicable):
- Your personal goals and objectives
- Your Risk Profile
- Current tax structure and planning
- Cash flow and debt management
- Current financial plan, investments and superannuation
- Your business plan
- Legal issues, including estate planning
We will also consider your specific needs, such as providing education for children, moving towards retirement, establishing an investment strategy or securing your future after divorce.
During the Concept Meeting, we will provide you with an overview of our concept strategies. You will have ample opportunity to ask questions and gain clarity on any areas you are unclear on. As a fee-for-service firm, we will quote you a fixed fee to develop, present and implement your financial plan, so you have a clear understanding of the costs involved. There is no additional fee for the Concept Meeting and will take approximately two hours.
3. Your Financial Plan
Your financial adviser and our team of internal experts will get to work designing, benchmarking and stress testing your financial plan. We will then present our detailed recommendations to you, allowing you plenty of time to understand our advice. Once you are comfortable with our recommendations, we will sign off on the plan and move to the implementation phase. We pride ourselves on keeping clients involved and will keep you up to date during the implementation of your plan.
Once all recommendations have been finalised, we will arrange for a Post-Implementation Meeting to review your position and outline our process for ongoing reviews.
