How we do business
Most of our clients are referred to our office by current clients, or local professionals.
As a prospective new client, there is no charge for your first consultation. Prior to your appointment, we will email you a brief questionnaire and ask you to complete it, and return it to us.
If clients require “one-off” advice, we can provide that service.
If clients require an ongoing relationship to ensure that they achieve their financial goals (the majority of our clients do) we can provide those services.
There are times when we cannot assist people. If this is the case, we will endeavour to refer you to someone who can.
Our process for providing advice involves seven steps.
We do not charge any new clients commissions on investments, nor fees based on the level of your assets. Our fees are based on the services that clients require. Fees and services are agreed upfront before we commence any work. Either an agreed flat fee or our professional hourly rates.
Our fees to provide ongoing services to our clients are reviewed annually. They are indexed to CPI. Clients who retain our services on an ongoing basis can terminate our services at any time.
We are paid commissions from life insurance providers on policies that we sell or service.
