Our passion is providing the highest quality paraplanning support to financial advice businesses. Coming from a financial planning background, we understand how important the adviser's time is. Whether it is spent sourcing new business or providing ongoing advice to existing clients, every minute counts. We provide advisers with more time to do the work that makes a real difference, giving advice.

Choosing the best strategy for your client is not always straightforward. Just send us the strategies you wish to be considered and we will crunch the numbers for you which will be sent through in a strategy work paper with a comparison of the scenarios considered in terms of net assets, cashflow, tax and Centrelink, ensuring your recommendations are backed by hard evidence.
The mathematics of financial advice is simple – The more clients you see, the more advice you can provide and the more revenue you are able to generate.
We understand that the biggest roadblock in achieving this is negotiating the maze of documentation and compliance requirements. Since the introduction of FOFA, advisers are spending more and more time doing administration and less time doing the job they love. Outsourcing your paraplanning is a simple and cost effective way of reducing the administration load.
As an advice professional you have three options for producing your Statements of Advice, they are:Do It Yourself
This is a cost effective option for new advisers, however it is easy to get bogged down during this critical time for your new business. Your time would be far better spent growing and building referral relationships and providing exceptional service to new clients.
The opportunity cost of writing your own plans makes this option the least suitable for adviser. If you are charging professional fees of $330 an hour and you work on a plan for 5 hours that is an opportunity cost $1,650.Hire an Internal Paraplanner
This option is continually growing more expensive for advice businesses. Due to the high level of technical skill, industry knowledge, education and expertise required to produce compliant advice documents the average salary of a Paraplanner is on the rise. You can expect to pay between $60,000 up to $100,000 per annum for a quality Paraplanner and the salary is only one of many expenses when hiring a new staff member. Other expenses include Super, leave pay, sick pay, workstations, insurance, training… the list goes on.Outsourcing
Outsourcing your paraplanning is a cost effective and efficient way of producing the documents required to formalise your advice. When you add up the opportunity cost of doing your own plans and the high cost of hiring an internal staff member, outsroucing makes financial sense. If your business is averaging 2 plans per week at an average cost of $380 per plan, this will cost your business $35,000 per annum. Outsourcing makes business sense – low annual cost, professional service, and high quality compliant documents every time.
