ONGOING SUPPORT

The completion and implementation of your statement
of advice is just the beginning of our support and guidance.
The key to the success of our advice is the ongoing support
available with our DIAMOND ongoing service level.

This service and support level encourages the introduction of family
involvement if that is in accordance with the wishes of the investor.
The financial education of the ultimate beneficiaries and the careful
structuring of estate planning ultimately leads to the most tax
efficient outcomes and less likelihood of wealth erosion either during
estate administration or after succession.

This service has a large number of components and is designed to
build the closet of relationships between not only you and your family
and your Financial Adviser, but also your Accountant and Tax Adviser
and other closely associated advisory sources.  It gives you regular
opportunity to discuss any changes to your lifestyle and financial
needs as and when they happen. 

This level of service is also designed for the business owner and
professional with a high net wealth but who may be asset rich but
time poor.  The level of serviced is aimed at providing a turnkey
financial management solution for all aspects of financial plan.

An important part of the wealth creation journey is not only planning your retirement but also planning your estate and business succession either during your lifetime or after your death.  Many families become locked in bitter battles over family wealth and without doubt some of the most rewarding work that any Financial Adviser can be involved with is seeing not only a wealthy retiree enjoying the fruit of their labours but also seeing their estate successfully, harmoniously and tax efficiently pass on to their beneficiaries.

THE OBJECTIVES OF OUR ONGOING ADVICE AND SERVICE

Appropriate Advice
We need to know about your changing circumstances and whether our original advice remains relevant for your current situation.  Building and maintaining wealth is an ongoing journey.

Keeping You Informed
It is important to know that you are progressing towards achieving your goals.  You need to know what advice is required to keep you on track.

Partnership
By continuing to work in partnership with you, we encourage you to remain disciplined to achieve your agreed goals.  We remind you of your goals if we see you veering off track.

Feeling Of Comfort
Through education, appropriate advice and  monitoring partnership, ongoing advice keeps you on track. If we all remain proactive in our process, we can continually look at ways of making the most of what you have.

"It is important to know that you are progressing towards achieving your goals."


Fee for Service
The annual fee for our DIAMOND ongoing service level is calculated based on various factors.

The factors included an ongoing Strategy and Risk Management Premium based on the quantum of funds on which we provide advice and a time based charge for the anticipated cost of our staff providing the ongoing services under this service program to you.

Based on the amount of funds on which we will be providing you advice, your Adviser will detail to you the Service Fee for the first year including GST.  The fee may be debited from your investment portfolio on the basis of monthly payments.

Alternatively, you may choose to be invoiced annually in advance.

Additional fees may be applicable if there are significant changes required to your existing plan and will be fully disclosed prior to proceeding with the changes.

Any commissions or referral fees received by us in relation to the provision of advice on lending or insurance shall be fully disclosed to you and retained by us.

The success of any plan is dependent upon the commitment that you are prepared to make to it.  It is important that not only are we prepared to provide a level of ongoing service to you in accordance with the information that we have discussed, but equally you are prepared to meet the costs of us providing that service to you.

Accordingly we seek to obtain agreement in advance of the provision of services to you so we both have certainty that there will be cooperation by all parties leading to a successful outcome.

Upon you providing your authority and confirmation that you will meet the agreed costs that we are about to incur in the provision of services to you, we will proceed with out agreed service level.

What our clients say...
  • "One word - Trust. I know how to make money, but accounting and financial planning is foreign to me so I've had to rely on people who I trust to look after my money. I've been working with Ross now for over 20 years as an accounting client, and when my financial planner retired it was an easy transition to Andrew, particularly because of his age. Andrew is young, serious, experienced and he is a long-term thinker. There is unbridled trust both ways working with Andrew. - Read more
    - Wayne Nicholson, First National Real Estate
  • "Andrew Westcott stands out from the crowd. When there were a few challenges with an insurance matter, he went to enormous lengths to find a solution. Not only that, he is a genuinely good bloke, and he is supported by a great team at M Financial Services. I trust, respect and highly recommend Andrew to anyone needing financial expertise at any point in their life." - Read more
    - Ryan Boccalatte
  • For approximately forty years, while Ross Maclean acted as both accountant and friend, I've witnessed the addition of intelligent, hardworking people. Andrew Westcott became my financial adviser almost six years ago. Although honour is an old-fashioned notion, I have found Andrew to be honourable, as well as knowledgeable, helpful, and patient, when I really needed his help when my husband died and I didn't function for a few years. That's when you need someone who you can trust. I have recommended Andrew to several friends, and I recommend you consult Andrew if you need financial advice. - Read more
    - Roslyn Evans
  • Andrew looks after us as if we were his only clients, even though we know we are not. He is generous with his time, easy to talk to, he clarifies issues in simple terms and talks to us in a friendly and professional way. Andrew helped us make the big decisions involved in our retirement, and has never given me the impression that as a female my views are not important in any conversation or decisions making process and this is important to me. Both Don and I feel important and valued by Andrew and the staff at M Financial Services, and that has helped us feel safe and secure in our financial future. - Read more
    - Don and Gayle Zahner
