Our Approach

A tailored mix of investment management and financial planning

Our Wealth Management Approach

Our goal is to build and protect your wealth by designing a customised portfolio with a sophisticated mix of investments, diversified across and within asset classes. But first, we need to develop a thorough understanding of who you are and where you're headed.

  • 1. Understand

    Your situation, goals and tolerance to risk

    As your partners in Wealth Management, it’s essential we get to know you before we offer any advice. We’ll ask questions about your family, your current financial situation, your cash flow needs, your goals and ambitions, and the level of service you require from us. As all financial strategies involve some level of uncertainty, we’ll also discuss your attitude towards risk. Your answers will help us build a solid foundation on which to structure our advice.

  • 2. Advise

    On an appropriate investment strategy

    Armed with the information you’ve provided, your Wealth Adviser will carefully consider your investment objectives and, where appropriate, engage our team of Wealth Management Specialists for additional input. Keeping your personal financial goals front-of-mind, they’ll evaluate your options and prepare a detailed statement of advice that clearly outlines their strategic recommendations. This document would typically be presented and explained to you in a face-to-face meeting.

  • 3. Explore

    Opportunities to add value to your financial planning

    In addition to a tailored investment strategy, and with your permission and input, your Wealth Adviser will also look for opportunities to further optimise your financial planning strategies. This might involve a review of your retirement planning, estate planning and/or insurance strategies with a view to offering advice on how they could be improved.

  • 4. Collaborate

    On the management of your portfolio

    Having agreed and implemented your investment strategy, our Wealth Management team can now partner with you in managing and administering your portfolio. We can act as the mail-house for your investments, taking care of all the paperwork relating to the management of your portfolio and keeping you informed of opportunities and announcements as they occur. When it comes to tax time, we can also provide your accountant with everything they need to know about your investments in a comprehensive end of financial year tax report.

  • 5. Review

    Your strategy as your circumstances change

    To keep you on track to achieving your goals, your Wealth Adviser can formally review your portfolio with you at agreed intervals. They can talk with you to see if your circumstances or objectives have changed since your last review and may recommend adjustments to your investment strategy or asset allocation. They can also do a health check of your broader financial planning needs, to ensure they’re still being met.
