Our financial planning process

Real financial planning is about more than just your money. Real financial planning is about aligning your use of capital (time, money, energy, and attention) with what is truly important to you.

Our financial advice process is designed to deliver you financial independence and success. This isn’t transactional. We are not here to sell you some product and move on. It’s a relationship.

The first step in our financial planning process is to define the purpose of financial planning for you. Just as no two people are the same, no two financial planning strategies are (or should be) the same. We like to think of this as understanding your Why. Being clear on this is the foundation of real financial planning and ensures we are on the same page with your current reality, what is important to you and your goals. 

Once the foundations are in place, you are guided through our proven process that brings together your goals and purpose with our technical expertise in areas such as:

And don’t worry that you will then have to be a financial expert to manage everything yourself going forward. Financial planning is not a one-time event, and we know that the most significant value of financial planning comes from the ongoing and iterative process of planning. You will have the ongoing support and relationship from our advice team that knows you personally.

Our fees

We believe that a clear agreement as to the scope of the work being undertaken and the costs to be incurred, provides a greater degree of certainty and clarifies the expectations of both parties.
