Our Advice

Making the decision to meet with a financial adviser can be daunting for many people. Understanding the process that your adviser will follow when meeting with you, and being prepared for what you can expect can help you feel comfortable with your decision.

Our Approach Is Simple

We focus on developing trust and building long term relationships, so you can feel confident that you can achieve your financial and lifestyle goals.

Financial Plan

Our first step is to design your financial Roadmap.


This is a process where the Elevate Wealth team map out a Financial Plan just for you – we need to get to know and understand:

  • Your lifestyle and financial goals
  • What and who is important to you
  • Where you stand financially
  • What you want your money to do for you

With this information, we can create a clear vision for your financial future. Building and protecting your wealth is our primary concern.

The financial roadmap we prepare covers the areas we discuss, sets out markers we can track and establishes a plan to create the life you want


With the above roadmap as the basis for our advice we provide several strategy options for your consideration based on what we believe your goals and objectives are. On your decision to pursue some or all of our options in greater detail then we will clearly outline each of your options within a statement of advice (SoA).


Following your acceptance of our advice, we arrange for the recommendations to be implemented. This involves coordinating the services of our highly-experienced team to ensure your plan is implemented in a timely manner. Each client is slightly different, you may decide on a DIY option or you may have other advisers that will implement components of the strategy on your behalf. Our goal is to assist and engage where appropriate.

On-Going Service

Our on-going service provides the accountability and monitoring to make sure you stay on course to a better financial future.

The Road to Financial

When seeking the guidance of a Financial Adviser the road to financial independence is different for everyone.

Having a plan, good money management and understanding where your money goes are crucial ingredients to achieving your lifestyle goals and financial independence. Our advice and smart strategies (Roadmap) are important but the biggest contributor to your overall wealth creation and eventual financial independence is YOU!

It is your commitment and dedication to the financial Roadmap that is designed specifically with your goals in mind, and the unwavering desire to achieve financial independence, that will yield you the success of financial freedom.
