Discovery and needs analysis
Our first goal is to get to know you. To fully understand your circumstances, your motivations and what you are trying to achieve. It’s also important that you have an opportunity to ask questions, learn about our advice process and get comfortable with our approach to ensure it aligns to you.
With an understanding of your needs and goals, your adviser will create a strategic financial plan designed to address them. Depending on your needs, this may be focused on a few areas or cover a broad range such as superannuation, retirement planning, tax management and building wealth. Your adviser will consider any interactions between the strategies to develop a plan that works for you.
When you’re comfortable with your financial plan, your adviser will guide you on the steps needed to set it in motion. This may include providing guidance on the actions required to implement the advice effectively and liaising with any external providers or professionals.
Monitoring and review
Achieving your objectives requires regular oversight and often some adjustment because circumstances and goals can change. For your peace of mind, we can offer an ongoing service model to check in with you to respond to any changes to your circumstances. Our advisers can also speak to you regarding legislation updates and bring suggestions for fine-tuning your strategy, where necessary.
