Independent Wealth Management Advice

Everybody has dreams and aspirations. Variety is the spice of life.

Some people may wish to fly to the moon, others would prefer to sail around the world or drive around this great Australian land. Perhaps your goals are a little closer to home and you simply wish to be the best parent or grandparent you can be.

Whatever your goal may be, it starts with a plan.

Plutus Financial Guidance provides a wide range of independent wealth management services tailored to a broad range of client goals, delivering the tools for certainty and peace of mind regarding your financial position.

We pride ourselves on the integrity and purpose that is common throughout all of our financial services. We believe that financial advice should be transparent and structured, so our clients can achieve their aspirations over the near and longer term. 

Consider your personal financial position:

  • Is your home and/or investment property paid off without mortgage remaining?
  • What are your income streams? Employment? Investments? Business?
  • Do you manage multiple assets?

Vince Lam and the Plutus Financial Guidance team are continuing to work safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to provide independent financial advisory services via online video consultation to those who prefer.

Key Financial Service Recommendations by the Royal Commission

On February 4th 2019, the government released the 1000+ page Final Report for the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry.

Advisers and the industry as a whole have faced scrutiny, with reforms in progress. One of the key recommendations from the Royal Commission was reporting the lack of independence by financial advisers.

Vince Lam can help provide key information and independent advice on paying super as a self-employed individual.

The President of the IFAAA, Daniel Brammall, has applauded these recommendations. “The IFAAA welcomes Commissioner Hayne’s recommendations. They echo the IFAAA’s Gold Standard of Independence: no commissions, no asset fees, no links to product manufacturers. Without this Gold Standard, as a consumer you run the risk of not getting true advice, but rather a sales pitch masquerading as advice.”

Independent Financial Advisers Association of Australia (IFAAA) formally refers to the gold standard of independence in financial advice. All advisers / members must meet the following criteria:

  • No asset-based fees
  • No commissions or incentive payments from product manufacturers
  • No ownership links or affiliations with product manufacturers

Vince Lam (who is the Principle Consultant at Plutus Financial Guidance) is a professional Accountant and an IFAAA Gold Standard Independent Financial Advisor with almost two decades of experience.
