Some parts of your finances are sufficiently complex, or you might just feel so time-poor, that you would prefer us to just tell you exactly what best to do and to help you do it. In these cases we can provide formal "Financial Advice".
In Australia there are strict rules about what counts as financial advice, who can give it and how it has to be given. The recent Royal Commission into Banking and Financial Services has made it clear that the financial advice industry still has many issues to address in how we give advice. Our approach at Purpose Advisory is to set up our own strict compliance procedures to make sure that you as the client are fully informed about how we develop your advice. We also make sure we are not incentivised to recommend anything other than what is in your best interest. That is why we choose not to take commissions from referral partners or product providers.
