Our Process

  • Gathering your Personal and Financial Information

    This process ensures that we accurately understand your current situation and that our recommendations are appropriate.

    After your initial consultation is scheduled with a S.G.A Financial Services Financial Planner we will provide a letter of confirmation, which will inform you of what information/documentation is required to bring to this appointment.

  • Getting to Know You

    Not only is this a legal requirement to “know your client”, it is also critical to establish why you are seeking advice.

    At our initial consultation, we identify your goals, objectives and identify financial concerns or issues that may affect your financial situation.

    Once your initial goals have been identified, we invite you to complete a Client Questionnaire on your current situation.

    After the conclusion of your initial consultation, we will advise you on how we can assist you and the associated costs involved in preparing your Statement of Advice (Financial Plan).

    You will be provided with an Authority to Proceed to commence your plan.
