Who do you serve?

We specialise in providing our services to company owners and their families.  Typically our clients are ‘asset rich and time poor’ and require a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ to put their affairs in order and manage them into the future.

Why should I engage the services of a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™?

What is financial planning versus financial advice?

Financial planning is more concerned with taking the time to understand your financial goals and aspirations and assisting you on a long term journey to achieve them.  Financial Advice takes more of a ‘transactional approach’ to executing product placement, such as setting up a life insurance policy or pension plan, and often acts in isolation to an overall integrated financial plan.

What is Cashflow Modelling?

Income is the lifeblood of any financial plan.  Cashflow Modelling is a term given to the process of determining the amount of lifetime income you need to fulfil your financial goals and objectives.  It takes into account all your assets, liabilities and income streams and devises strategies to ensure the optimum use of your financial resources to provide your lifetime income requirement.  We use advanced software to clearly ‘paint a picture’ of your financial future.
