What Does It Cost to Have a Statement of Advice (Financial Plan) Prepared?
The cost of a Statement of Advice is highly variable depending upon your personal situation. For this reason, we do not advertise a fee schedule.
It would be remiss of us to make an assumption about your personal circumstances, financial situation and personal risk, goals and aspirations without first meeting with you.
Please read our Financial Services Guide which provides an outline of our fees and services.
Basically there are the following fees that apply:
- Fee Based on collating the information from you, researching and providing the statement of advice.
- Implementation Fee – This fee is charged when you enter a product, TJSfinancial does not charge a implementation fee on products (excludes Annuities).
- Ongoing Service Fee – you and Tor agree on what services you require on a ongoing basis, for example a review every 12 months, access to a cash flow budget, and reviewing your investments or insurances in a timely manner.
In the case of insurance only deals, usually the insurance providers pay us to place the business, the amount they pay is basically the same, so there is no incentive to choose one over the other. The incentive however is to make sure the policy we advise you to get is one that you will keep for a long time into the future, so its in both our benefit to get the correct policy. Commission can be rebated, if so the charge for the statement of advice for the insurance only will be based on an hourly rate and charged directly to you. In this case the premiums will usually be slightly lower for you.
