how we do it here!"
Step 3: Get serious
about your wealth goals
When you decide to proceed with us, documenting your wealth plan is the first order of the day. Your Financial Plan is a detailed document outlining your current financial details and circumstances, your cash flow needs, financial goals and risks. Your plan also details the financial strategies we recommend to help you get there. Just as importantly, we consider your Plan B, costings and options.
The preparation of your Financial Plan typically takes 4-6 weeks. If there is information you have not provided us, it is important you do so before we commence preparing your financial plan. This ensures your Financial Plan is spot on. Clients tell us they love their plan presentation appointment where their customised journey to wealth is presented in great detail, organised in clear steps and laid out ready for action.
Allow 2 hours for your plan presentation appointment. Take the time to ask any questions you have. After all, this is your financial plan, your aspirations. It’s about your future.

plan is just a wish"

Step 4: Do it!
So, you’re ready to make your Financial Plan a reality. We don’t just document your plan, we project manage its implementation.
Once we receive your go-ahead, we prepare an action plan and implementation schedule customised to you, with clear timelines and responsibilities.
We keep close tabs on your implementation, providing you updates along the way on progress. You just sit back and relax. Have questions? We’re a phone call away.

until it’s done."
Step 5: Ensuring you
stay on track
Your financial plan is not beautifully bound so it can sit on a shelf. At OakWealth, keeping you focused is the most important role we play.
Regular and ongoing review of outcomes, disciplined action planning and realignment: your ongoing review sessions are deliberately designed to keep you on track.
At these meetings, find out your progress towards your financial goals. If there have been changes to your circumstances, update us. This way, we can review your financial strategies to ensure they stay relevant to your needs.
