4. Who do we serve best? (who are our typical clients?)

Age 50 Plus

Our sole focus at Allen Private Wealth Advice is retirement planning for the over fifties.

Pre-Retirees

50% of our clients are still working and are on the countdown to retirement. They are typically between five and ten years away from retirement and are using their final working years to significantly boost retirement savings. They are actively planning, saving and tax-efficient investing so they can enjoy a wonderful lifestyle in retirement.

The typical questions asked by our pre-retiree clients are:

  • Will I have enough money to retire at age x?
  • How much money do I need to retire on an income of $x a year? Am I on track?
  • How can I invest tax efficiently to grow my retirement savings?
  • Could I be doing something different/better?
  • What are the investment options available to me?

Allen Private Wealth Advice will help you answer these questions.

Retirees

50% of our clients are already enjoying their retirement lifestyle. Our retired clients are concerned about making their money last as long as possible whilst enjoying a wonderful lifestyle along the way.

The typical questions asked by our retiree clients are:

  • How long will my retirement savings last on an income of $x a year?
  • Can I afford that holiday/new car/home improvement?
  • Will this spending affect my retirement savings?
  • Are my investments right for me?
  • How can I qualify for maximum Centrelink benefits and concession cards?
  • What will happen to my retirement savings if something happens to me?

Allen Private Wealth Advice will help you answer these questions.

Informed Investors

Whilst our clients wish to be informed and sign-off on all investment decisions they do not want to be actively involved in the day to day decision making and management of their investments. Our clients choose to enjoy their family, lifestyle and interests over managing a daily investment portfolio. We do not cater to “DIY” investors who wish to actively trade their share portfolios.

5. What are the costs of receiving financial advice and service?

First Meeting

The first meeting is no cost and obligation free.

Financial Plan

You will be sent a quote in the mail for the cost of a Statement of Advice after the end of our first meeting. The cost of a Statement of Advice will depend on your personal situation, time and complexity. The Statement of Advice will be individually tailored to your personal circumstances and include our advice, knowledge and strategies on how to best meet your retirement goals.

Placing Investments

There will be no entry or exit fees on recommended investments. 100% of entry fees are rebated back to our clients. We do not recommend exit fee products.
