A financial planning business is only as good as its people. Achieving your objectives is dependent on the qualifications, experience, attitude and approach of the advisor and the time he or she takes to get to know you and develop a strategy to meet your unique needs. Twenty five years in this business has taught me that no two clients are the same and there is no place for commoditised pre-packaged products. To maximise your returns, you need a strategy that takes into account all relevant issues and then customised to you. To maximise your returns, there needs to be recognition that things change and that frequent reviews of the strategy – to minimise the impact of black swan events – is essential.

At Black Swan Event Financial Planning all client needs are addressed by me or my colleague Richard Gordon. We both have the qualifications and experience to take personal responsibility for clarifying your position, developing your strategy and implementing that strategy and then reviewing it regularly.

I have recently brought Richard Gordon into the firm because he is the first adviser I have met in some time who shares both – my contempt for the customised pre-packaged financial products offered by the banks and most financial planners – and my commitment to clearly understanding client needs, providing personalised advice and developing a tailored strategy and reviewing that strategy regularly I love investing and nothing gives me more joy that working with clients over their period of investment (while working) and their period of spending (after retirement) to ensure they achieve their financial and personal objectives.
