Given the changes resulting from the Hayne Royal Commission, clients are now seeking greater engagement and wish to take charge of their wealth. We see this as an opportunity for advisers to re-connect and take clients through a process that reframes their requirements and preferences in detail. As a DFSPS client, you have access to our proprietary portfolio decision tool that complements your current client engagement by providing education and guidance with respect to the following portfolio management considerations:
- Direct vs Indirect investing
- Indexed vs Active investing
- Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA) vs Dynamic Asset Allocation (DAA)
- Whether to use Separately Managed Account (SMA product approach) or Managed Discretionary Account (MDA service approach)
Our portfolio decision tool establishes client preferences & suitability by giving due regard to factors such as: cost sensitivities; extent to which your clients wish to be involved in investment decisions; response time on investment decisions; and attitudes and sensitivities to downside and shortfall risks. Our portfolio decision tool enhances dialogue with your clients by addressing important portfolio considerations that are seldom referred to in the financial planning process, let alone addressed as a part of best interest obligation.
