The Financial Planning Process

At Altura Financial Planning we undertake the following steps as part of the financial planning process:

1. The first initial meeting where we identify your financial goals as well as determining what areas you would like to focus on.

2. Devise a strategy which meets your financial needs and objectives.

3. Prepare your statement of advice which outlines our recommendations to you.

4. Present and discuss your statement of advice.

5. Implement the recommendations within your statement of advice.

6. Review your progress at least once a year to ensure your goals are still on track.

Our Fees

Our fees are dependent entirely upon the level of planning and advice sought by each individual client as well as whether you choose to implement the recommendations. We offer a fee-for-service arrangement and are able to rebate any product commissions back to you.

The first initial consultation is at our expense. At that meeting we will discuss your particular requirements as well as our fees going forward.
