Why do we offer the second opinion service?
What we have found is that with all the complexity and volatility in today’s financial markets many investors are actively considering switching their financial advisers or wealth managers. However, they are unsure of what to do and they do not know if they are well positioned to stay with their current adviser or whether they should switch adviser. It may be performance related. It could be down to service or just the general feeling that the adviser doesn’t have a consistent process to deliver all the advice for their wealth management needs.
With that in mind, how can a client find the right adviser?
This has led us to develop our second opinion service. It has been built to help investors make informed decisions. In this service we provide a second opinion. We will take them through the start of our wealth management process.
We offer a full consultative wealth management process which begins with the discovery meeting where we ask a series of thought provoking questions to fully understand where the client is now, where they are trying to go to, which in turn then helps us to start to build a strategy for the steps they need to take to reach their goals. We will examine any gaps that need to be filled.
If a client is in good shape with their current adviser we will obviously let them know or if it is more appropriate for us to work with them, we will begin that process.
The next steps
Crucially our initial discovery meeting is held completely at our cost with no further obligation. We do tend to find that even if it is not suitable for a client to join us, they find the discovery discussions incredibly useful and they help them understand to far greater extent their current financial position and also what their goals are.
How a client would go about booking a second opinion meeting would be simply to contact us at the office on 0121 308 8034 to arrange a mutually convenient appointment.
For existing clients of Donald Wealth Management they are able to offer their friends and family members access to the full discovery meeting and strategy plan meeting all at no charge whatsoever.
For new perspective clients who haven’t been referred by an existing Donald Wealth Management client or a member of our Professional Network team, while the discovery meeting will be free of charge, we do reserve the right to charge for producing the strategy plan. We would obviously discuss any costs with you before proceeding to that stage.
Who do we work with
We only work with clients with whom we can have a major impact. If clients should consider switching financial advisers and we are not a good fit, we will be happy to point them in the right direction for a financial adviser who can work with them more effectively.
I look forward to hearing from you and please contact us on 0121 308 8034 to arrange your second opinion meeting.
