was owed by AFS licensees as compensation for ongoing advice-related misconduct.
This was primarily driven by issues around fee for no service where consumers were charged invisibly – with fees being deducted from their investment accounts.
The ongoing advice landscape is changing rapidly. Fee for no service has brought in an influx of new regulation in 2020, with advisers required to renew agreements annually and be more transparent about the services they provide and the fees they charge.
Amidst this, ongoing advice still remains a focal point for advisers that want their clients to achieve their financial goals. From revisiting risk attitudes, to assessing changes in current positions and making necessary adjustments, advisers need to ensure that they are acting in their clients’ best interests, while at the same time understanding how to navigate this complex regulatory landscape.
With more than a decade of experience in financial planning, Planlogic understands the value of ongoing advice along with its associated complexities. From initially building our expertise in paraplanning, we naturally progressed to providing advisers with ongoing advice-related services, having completed more than 3,000 reviews over the span of three years.
From pre-review tasks all the way through to implementation, the Planlogic team stands ready to compile any ongoing advice-related documents such as fund manager reports, review presentation documents and any other practice-specific documents. Our mantra of ‘enabling people to achieve financial freedom and live their best life’ means that we want our advisers to focus on what is most important – creating value for clients. We take care of the rest.
We ensure that advisers can meet their ongoing advice obligations through a systemised approach of checking fees and confirming that they are in line with agreed fee structures. We also book client meetings and obtain account balances prior to client appointment dates.
We prepare all documents that you would typically use at a client review meeting to ensure that you have a productive and effective conversation.
