Certainty Advisers are different.
Unfortunately, only a minority of Australians obtain financial advice. Certainty Advisers aim to address the imbalance by leading a new approach to the pricing and delivery of advice. They adhere to the only approved standard of advice with IP Australia built upon leadership, advocacy, growth and fairness.
Certainty Advisers is not a product-dealer group, but a group of advisers adhering to needed advice standards for comprehensive advice clients.
By combining and sharing the experience of implementing needed advice standards, the objective of Certainty Advisers is the acceleration of the acceptance, availability and delivery of valuable advice for more Australians.
THE WRONG WAY TO BUY COMPREHENSIVE ADvicE
Offering comprehensive financial advice and charging based upon amount of money is not fair to the client. It also unfair for society to build an advice industry exclusively for those who are already wealthy. Comprehensive advice should be priced on the value of the advice, not the amount of money under advice.
THE RIGHT WAY TO BUY COMPREHENSIVE ADVICE
Clients only need advice when they face a situation that they cannot resolve without it. The value of the advice must be determined by the client, not any amount of money or amount of effort. If the client does not perceive value from advice then why should the amount of money invested or hours effort matter?
THE WRONG WAY TO PROMOTE COMPREHENSIVE ADvicE
Comprehensive financial advice is not about product choices. Certainty Advisers advocate against the widespread rent-seeking efforts by product providers who seek to confuse Australians into believing that costs, product features, latest market trends and past performance is the key to better financial lives.
THE RIGHT WAY TO PROMOTE COMPREHENSIVE ADVICE
Comprehensive financial advice is about life choices. Products matter, but only as a potential means to valued progress. Certainty Advisers advocate a philosophy from Plato – “The cure of a part should not be attempted without the treatment of the whole” – to ensure the greatest probability to achieve the greatest progress while considering the unique circumstances of each client.
THE WRONG WAY TO GROW COMPREHENSIVE ADvicE
Growth of comprehensive advice firms is not about growth of assets under management, product ranges or amount of “fees for service”. These are measures for product specialists who play important roles, but whose advice is not to be confused with comprehensive impartial advice.
THE RIGHT WAY TO grow COMPREHENSIVE ADVICE
Growth of Certainty Advice firms is about growth of valuable client relationships based not upon increased “fees for service” arrangements or amount of “funds under management”, but rather based on old-fashioned “value for money”. Certainty Advice firms are aligned to well-established standards while sharing their lessons to expedite the spread of valuable advice for more Australians.
What makes a Certainty Adviser?
Certainty Advisers are leading advocacy for needed change. The leadership of the advice industry is for advisers, not institutions or providers to the advice industry. The vested interests of massive financial institutions are strong. Being a Certainty Adviser entails taking a leading advocacy role to change the lives of their clients as well as improving the greater good for more advice-seeking Australians.
TRAINING & RENEWAL
Every week, month and half-year the Certainty Advice community of advisory teams attend various live, virtual, one-on-one and group sessions for on-going training and renewal. The sharing insights accelerates the progress for all participating advisory teams.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Certainty Advisers are bound by a Code of Conduct. The code is maintained by Certainty Advisers. It sets expectations regarding training, collaboration, client engagement, client management, community involvement and pricing standards.
Certainty Advisers adhere to checks of their implementation to compare, and advance Certainty Standards. Attendance, maintenance, and proficient use of Certainty tools and models in client discovery, management, engagement processes as well as business planning are priority areas for adherence.
