Basis for a recommendation
Analysis of a superannuation fund delivers a quantifiable assessment of how good or bad the fund is based on performance, price, features, benefits and size. If we identify a better path forward for a client, that we believe is likely to improve wealth over time, provide for a better retired life, we believe this advice should be delivered. To do this correctly we adhere to best interest duties and obligations detailed by ASIC in the FOFA reforms.
