The information requested in this Client Questionnaire is helpful to consider before meeting with a Financial Planner to enable recommendations to be made and will be used solely for that purpose.
The Corporations Law requires that an adviser making investment recommendations must have reasonable grounds for making those recommendations.
This means that an advisor must conduct an appropriate investigation as to the financial objectives, situation and particular needs of the client.
According to the Financial Planning Association of Australia Limited (FPA) … “Financial Planning is the process of providing advice and assistance to a client for the purposes of achieving the client’s financial goals.”
The FPA defines the six steps of the financial planning process as follows:
1. The collection and analysis of all relevant personal and financial data.
2. The identification of financial problems.
3. The identification of financial goals and objectives.
4. The provision of a written report with recommendations.
5. The co-ordination and implementation of recommendations.
6. The provision or periodic reviews and plan updates.
Thank you for preparing your answers to this questionnaire. All of the information below will be held in the strictest of confidence.
