Holistic Financial Advice To define 'holistic financial advice', we must first consider the general make-up of personal wealth in Australia. In total, Australians invest over 6 times more in property-based assets than in Australian equities. Financial services products represent less than 40% of Australians' growth asset exposure (excluding business and other assets). Unfortunately, many financial advisers still focus their advice around financial services products, because these are the traditional source of their remuneration - through commissions. Being truly holistic, Nationwide Wealth Advisers’ advice encompasses your entire portfolio of assets including any business interests. Only by considering your affairs in their entirety can we recommend strategies to manage risks and improve your overall efficiency of wealth creation. As your Private Wealth Captain, Nationwide Wealth works closely with you and your other professional advisers to ensure that everyone is pulling in the same direction: yours. We also aim to protect one of your most precious assets - your time. Below are some of the areas we consider when providing you with holistic advice. 

The 6 Step Nationwide Wealth Advice Delivery Process At Nationwide Wealth Advisers we have designed our advisory process to meet the very different needs of self-directed business owners and high-income individuals. The strength of our process is its efficient identification and ongoing management of risks while we pursue the agreed wealth creation strategies. It's a unique approach in an industry that still maintains an unhealthy focus on financial products and transactions. The Nationwide advice process combines industry-leading and proprietary systems with our proven strategic wealth management philosophy. The result is a robust advice framework that actively manages your risks and improves the overall efficiency of your wealth creation. At Nationwide, the Advice Delivery Process is broken up into 6 distinct steps:      

Initial Consultation & General Strategies Overview Client Fact Find Consultation & Information Gathering Analysis of Current Situation & Preparation of Financial Review Report Preparation of a Tailored Statement of Advice Implementation of Strategies & Recommendations Ongoing Financial Review Service

Our Transparent Fee Structure At Nationwide Wealth Advisers we provide advice on a pure 'fee for service' basis. So, you are only invoiced for the professional time required to provide your financial advice. Before engaging our services, you are provided with a written fee estimate (budget) based on the scope of work to be performed and the complexity of your financial situation. To provide you with unrivalled transparency, all professional time incurred in relation to your file is accurately recorded, costed and tracked using our industry-leading proprietary software, Compass. This means that you remain in control of the cost of the service at all times and you can see the value of the work performed at any point during the process. Should you need to change the complexity or scope of the engaged work, you are provided with an engagement reconciliation along with an updated fee estimate for approval. Importantly, this approach allows our clients the option of managing their investments themselves while still receiving the benefits of our holistic advice and risk management.
