How We Work

Gaining a thorough understanding of your financial circumstances is essential to offing the best advice. In the first instance, our financial advisor will visit you for a free financial health-check to determine your current financial position. We use a five-step financial planning process:

  • Phase 1: Initial Meeting
  • Phase 2: Financial Analysis
  • Phase 3: Strategy Presentation
  • Phase 4: Implementation
  • Phase 5: Review

How We Are Paid

  • The first meeting is ALWAYS on a ‘free’ and no obligation basis.
  • We always try to work to the best interests of our client not ourselves.
  • All charges are visible and if clients are paying a fee we will offer ‘quotes’ of how much the work will be upfront.
