Your initial consultation will involve the gathering of your personal information and identifying the financial and lifestyle goals and objectives you are aiming to achieve, both now and in the future.
We will introduce our business to you and offer information such as the services we offer, how we can help you achieve success, the company philosophy and the advice process.
We will explain in detail the financial planning process and your involvement. We encourage our clients to provide as much accurate information as possible so that we can begin to formulate financial strategies and alternatives that are specifically tailored to your needs and circumstances.
You will be provided with a Financial Services Guide detailing information about the dealer group, and their responsibility to you.
You will complete a Client Profile questionnaire detailing your current personal information, your financial and lifestyle goals, your current financial position, and expectations for the future. The information requested in this Client Profile is one of the tools we use to establish a basis for the advice we will provide. By completing this document as accurately and fully as possible, we are equipped to provide the strategic advice and alternatives that will cater to your individual needs, circumstances and objectives.
We will get you to complete an investment Risk Profile questionnaire which has been designed to assist you in making an investment decision. It asks some questions regarding your goals, timeframes and comfort with investments to provide a guide to your investor profile. Your investor profile then determines a benchmark asset allocation for your investments.
We will then explain the next step in the financial planning process involving the formulation of strategic alternatives for your consideration.
