The DRC Process
Our process can be explained more simply by breaking the approach down into six distinct stages. Click for further details below.
Stage 1 - Initial Consultation
Our relationships with clients are always built on trust. We know choosing a Financial Adviser can be daunting so we always offer an initial, no obligation meeting at no cost to you. It allows us to explain our services in more detail, whilst also being an opportunity to see if we are a good fit for one another.
Stage 2 - Fact Find
It’s important we really get to know you and your financial situation. Of course we need to obtain basic information, but what’s significant to us is understanding your future aspirations. This can be anything from ensuring your business is left to your children, or moving to Italy to enjoy your retirement. Our advice is always bespoke, therefore understanding what means the most to you will help us provide the most suitable recommendations.
Stage 3 - Research
Now we understand your current situation and future objectives, our technical team work hard behind the scenes to prepare a recommendation which is right for you. We undertake product research and use the best analytical software to review your existing arrangements. Our recommendations are always bespoke and tailored around your goals, helping you to achieve your dreams.
Stage 4 - Plan Presentation
At this stage, we present the recommendations our team have created. It’s important you fully understand our proposals and how they will help you to achieve your aspirations. We will leave our report with you, giving you time to think it over and ask any necessary questions.
Stage 5 - Plan Implementation
Once you have decided to go ahead, it is our responsibility to facilitate the smooth processing of putting our recommendations in place. This can be a complex area and our aim is to remove any hassle for you, just keeping you informed with key updates and expected completion dates.
Stage 6 - Ongoing Review
Our job is not to provide a single recommendation, but an ongoing service. As your situation changes, so will your financial needs. It is important we keep you on track and adapt our strategy to suit this.
