As your Financial Adviser, I begin with a free initial consultation to understand your objectives and aspirations. I will help you realise these goals with a tax efficient, measured and realistic approach. As a result, you will be better informed, confident and empowered to reach and visualise your financial future. I will explain my fees and other associated costs in a clear and concise way. I am completely transparent, and you will never encounter any hidden surprises.
Your capital is at risk. Investments can fluctuate in value and you may get back less than you invest. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Tax rules can change at any time.
I offer advice on limited types of products. Primarily, I will advise on strategy funds and tax wrappers held on the True Potential Wealth Platform. In circumstances where the True Potential Wealth Platform does not have a product to meet your needs, I will broaden my research to other companies with products not available on the True Potential Wealth Platform. You may ask me for a list of those companies.
