How do I become a client?
The first step in the financial planning process involves sitting down or having a phone call with an advisor. The advisor will spend at least an hour completing a financial health check with you to fully understand your personal and financial situation. Once this is completed, the advisor will research your position and your objectives and if you qualify for advice the advisor will present a financial plan to you. It is at that point you can chose to become a client.
If I become a client, how will I be advised?
Each client works with their own financial adviser. Together, they will develop, implement and manage a made-to-measure financial strategy that is fully in-line with the client’s situation, needs and plans for the future.

It should also afford you the flexibility of rearranging it to allow for significant life changes, including buying a new property, having and raising a child, moving to a new country or retiring. Your financial adviser will also make suggestions on how best to adapt your strategy, based on the opportunities at hand.
