Do You Need Sound Unbiased Investment Advice?  

Investment decisions have a major impact on the quality of your life and your family, both now and in the future. They should be based on facts and analysis not emotion and personal bias.
Do you really have the knowledge, experience and objectivity required to go it alone? Can you really afford to trust free advice from someone who stands to gain financially if you buy a particular product?

Fee-Based Financial Advice

At Progressive Financial Planning in Christchurch, our certified financial planners specialise in investment advice and UK pension fund transfers. We are totally upfront with no hidden agendas. Like doctors, accountants or other trusted professionals, we make a living by charging our clients fees in exchange for our expert knowledge, advice and service.

We are not a finance company. We do not make commissions from selling financial products to new clients. We do not carry any product quota.  Instead we provide financial advice and help you implement it. If this generates any commission* the money gets rebated back to you the client. This means we are motivated to recommend the best product for your situation, not the one with the largest commission.

Think about it! Would you want it any other way? Imagine going to a doctor who gave free advice but was financially motivated to prescribe the drug with the biggest commission? You’d be crazy! So why accept this kind of behaviour from a financial adviser?

* There is one exception. On cash accounts within client portfolios commission is retained to reduce administration workload.
