Understanding Importance of Comprehensive Financial Advice

3 min read

You may find that, due to the nature of your circumstances, it would be more appropriate to receive advice that is more 'comprehensive' than 'single topic' advice. Usually this means that there are either a number of areas of advice that you require or that your personal circumstances dictate the need for more complex recommendations.

Often comprehensive advice is based around a number of different goals that you would like to achieve. You then work with an adviser to develop a comprehensive plan that will address each of these goals within the context of each other.

Topics covered in comprehensive advice include:

  • Superannuation;

  • Cashflow;

  • Investments;

  • Retirement Planning;

  • Insurance; and

  • Tax

A comprehensive plan will not only give you advice on each of these areas, it will consider the interplay between them and how they affect each other. As an example, how to structure your investments may have tax implications and retirement plans that need to be considered.

When you go through the process with Fiduciary, they will let you know if they think it would be more appropriate that you receive a comprehensive plan rather than single topic advice and will help to make sure that you directed to a comprehensive planner accordingly.

Because a financial plan will set out goals to be achieved in the future, it is important that you have an ongoing relationship with your adviser to ensure that you remain on track.
