How financial advice works

If you’ve never had financial advice before, the process can feel daunting. But there’s nothing to worry about.

We’re here to listen with an open mind. Understanding that you want to improve your position. Whatever that may be right now.

Here's how it works

Step 1 – We work out where you want to be

This is where we take a look at where you are now and where you want your finances to be.

We talk about goals, your life, and your dreams for the future.

Step 2 – Understand your investment type

Part of getting to know you is to understand how your personality type influences the type of investor you are, your time frames and how this shows up in your strategy.

Step 3 – We get to work on creating a strategy for you

Using all the info we know about you, we research, strategies and put together a plan that supports your goals.

It usually includes a review of:
 - your current position
 - existing investment

structures and super

Step 6 – It’s not a set and forget thing

We know life doesn’t always go in a straight line, so we have an annual check-in and review of your strategy to make sure it’s keeping up with your life.

Step 5 – Implement your plan

Once you’ve signed off on the strategy, we go about implementing your plan.

And yes. There will be paperwork.

But we do what we can to help you so it’s as painless as possible.

Step 4 – We present your plan

Once we put together a strategy, we talk you through the options and why we’ve chosen them. 

This is where you’ll see a Statement of Advice (the legal document), but we take the time to explain things simply so you understand and can confidently decide.
