How We Work
Financial planning is often likened to a journey, and that means having a starting point and a destination, as well as potential stopping off points along the way. The more thought that goes into the journey, the less stressful and more direct it will be.Portfolio Wealth Advice provide a complete financial planning and investment advice solution, building long term and trusted relationships.The 6 stage advice process helps us to best meet the varied and complex needs of our clients.
Explain who we are, how we work and what we could do for you.
The process starts with an introductory conversation to understand your needs and goals.
Gather financial information at the introductory meeting.
We run through a fact-finding exercise to establish a snapshot of your current situation. We will identify your goals, needs and objectives, taking into consideration your attitude to investment risk and the compatibility of our services. This enables us to present to series of initial ideas, techniques and potential strategies. You then have the opportunity to take the ideas away, give consideration to the ground covered and to decide how best to proceed.
Evaluate data and develop your financial plan.
