Ongoing Service Offering

It is important that advice remains current in order to remain relevant and in your best interests.  As part of our service to you, we offer a range of Ongoing Advice service levels.

The recommendations provided to you form the basis of a sound long-term investment strategy.  It is inevitable that over time changes will occur, not only in investment markets, legislation, fund performance, economic environment and more importantly your circumstances.

It is these changes and the dynamic nature of the investment environment which create the need for timely and effective ongoing strategic financial planning advice. This will enable you to keep abreast of any changes and promptly tailor the fund’s portfolio accordingly.

As part of this formal review process, we will evaluate the fund’s current investments, portfolio structure, asset allocation and any other issue(s) that may affect your financial planning requirements.
