What should you expect?
We have a 6 step journey to take you through, which we will guide you on every step of the way:
Getting to know you, in our initial meetings we will understand your current situation and your goals and objectives. Everything is confidential and we will encourage you to have open and honest conversations to develop a clear understanding of where you want your life journey to head.
After our initial conversations we will develop a financial road map and form information in a proposal that will help us prepare what is called, a Statement of Advice (SOA). The proposal will take into account your financial position, and may include your debt levels, cash flow, tax structures, superannuation, and family asset protection, depending on what level of advice you require.
Research, protections, analysis by the Collins House team will commence to form a strategic plan for you in the form of an SOA. The development of your financial strategy for you will be clear, measurable and achievable and we will guide you through it all. It will become a blueprint for achieving your goals and steps to get you there.
We will present your SOA to you that aligns to your previously discussed goals and objectives. In the advice presentation meeting we will help you understand the complexity, turn any uncertainty into understanding and confidence and agree a way forward with the recommendations or options.
If you agreed to proceed with the SOA’s recommendations, as part of the package we provide we will implement your financial plan for you at no additional cost, taking away the hassle and ensuring a smooth transition to your brighter future knowing you’re in good hands.
We don’t finish there, when you chose one or both of our Independent Ongoing Advice Services, you can relax in the knowledge that our team of professionals have your best interests at heart as we have no conflicts of interest and only charge for professional advice provided. This means there is no pressure on you to sign up to the latest fad, just to generate a commission, and any commissions we receive are rebated to our clients, thus removing all conflicts of interest.
Financial Planning review meetings can be tailored to your specific requirements so that there is no “one size fits all” approach and our sliding scale fee structure for providing Independent Advice, means that family groups, secure significant fee discounts for larger sums.
The Collins House Difference
Collins House has effectively guided us through our investment journey.
The advisory teams have enabled us to navigate through market volatility and achieve flexible investment outcomes.
Investment, taxation and legal advice has been critical in helping us solve complicated issues involving a family trust.
The review advice is always pitched in a clear language so the advisor – client relationship is unambiguous. Dominic, Kate and Sam are always available to answer our queries.
Sue & Chris
“For me, Collins House is peace of mind – and peace of mind is priceless.
I don’t give my confidence lightly, having moved from an Advisor at a different company, that I was less than impressed with.
It is calming to have faith in my Financial Advisor, Kate Nicol, whom I have built up a working relationship with over a number of years. Her advice has definitely stood me in good stead. “
“Thank you for your calm and considered guidance with my financial arrangements. I am so pleased that I contacted Collins House and met with Simon Guiliano and Matthew Dell to discuss my options.
Your friendly, focussed and very professional approach was very conducive to trust in the process. Your ability to sequentially explain the various options, without any pressure was remarkable.
Thank you for your professional care-I feel very supported. I believe that Collins House is indeed fortunate to have you on the team!”
“Dominic provides excellent independent advice and refunds any commissions paid to him by products he recommends so he does not have a conflict of interest in products he recommends”
“Extremely professional and honest. One of the very few truly independent advisers. I have dealt with many a financial adviser and none hold a candle to Dominic and the team. They don’t take commissions so their advice is pure, unbiased and without conflict. I would enthusiastically recommend Dominic and the team to my family, friends and colleagues.”
“I have found the experience in dealing with Dominic Alafaci and Collins House highly satisfying with their integrity, long standing experience, professional process, follow up client and management practices first rate! I would further recommend Collins House and Dominic Alafaci without any hesitation. Wishing Dominic and Collins House every ongoing success and in all future Services and Client Management endeavours!”
“I have known and dealt with Dominic Alafaci and his team at Collins House for well over 30 years. Their service, advice and professionalism is second to none. Knowledge and integrity is paramount to their ‘Customer First’ approach which is at the centre of everything they do. They truly do set the benchmark for the Industry to follow. I would highly recommend them.”
Alex Di Rienzo
“Highly knowledgeable adviser with excellent listening and communication skills; tailors strategies to my circumstances; employs a small team who’s skills complement his own so that I get the ‘complete package’ (strategy, investment, taxation, accounting) in a ‘one stop shop’. Have no hesitation in recommending him and his team to others.”
