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 GOLD ongoing service level.

This service level has a number of components necessary for
your level of wealth that needs close management and review
to ensure tax and portfolio efficiency.  By the provision of half
yearly Portfolio Valuation reports, half yearly portfolio review
meetings and an annual tax planning meeting, we give you
the opportunity to discuss any changes to your lifestyle and
financial needs.

The GOLD ongoing service level suits investors that have
accumulated significant wealth and are either approaching
retirement or are already at that stage.  The regular contact
ensures opportunities and threats are identified and any
adjustments required are made promptly.  This level focuses
on taxation and retirement planning with significant emphasis
on superannuation planning.

Congratulations.  You have largely reached your goal of financial independence.  You have accumulated significant wealth and now many investors seek to enjoy it.

You are likely to be at a stage in your life where you are confronted with the challenges of health, fitness and aging and have the opportunity to plan towards a tax effective retirement and possibly provide financial assistance to children and grandchildren.  This is where the unique benefit of your M Financial Services Financial Adviser having a close alignment with your Accountant and Taxation Adviser becomes extremely valuable when we draw on their tax and estate planning skills knowing that we are all working on the same page with identical goals and plans for your financial destination.

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 a 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 GOLD 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 dependant 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 service to you, we will proceed with the agreed costs that we are about to incur in the provision of services to you.

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
