At our first meeting, we learn what’s important to you, discover your core values, discuss your current financial situation and what you would like to achieve.
We prepare detailed statements of advice, structure investment portfolios and provide expert guidance on investment strategies so as to achieve your objectives.
We are always honest and clear when we give you our statement of advice – without using jargon or industry terms that you can’t be expected to understand. That’s why Honesty is one of our core values.
An important question our clients ask us is: ‘How much income will we be able to have in retirement?’ Or if they have sufficient savings, ‘When can we retire?’ We provide this answer – but more importantly, we provide the steps you should take so you can reach your goals.
Communication and trust are vital
If you choose to then become an ongoing client, we will regularly review your financial position and meet with you so as to discuss your portfolio and provide performance updates. We will also make sure that any changes in laws and rules that affect your investments are considered in terms of how they will impact you. We will try to utilise these changes to your advantage.
Your own situation will change – you will have a new career, new qualification, new family circumstances, new goals. Life is always changing. We also need to change our advice to match your new circumstances.
We believe that regular communication with you is vital, to keep you updated and inspire mutual trust. That’s why Communication and Trust are two of our core values.
What our clients say
I had an existing superannuation account that had been in place for many years with a major investment fund. I was very disappointed with the service, the level of information and the return I was receiving from this group. I was contacted by Core Value Financial Advice about taking over this account, so I accepted their offer. I have not looked back since. On reviewing the strategy that had been put in place by the previous group, Core Value Financial Advice implemented an extensive revamp; since that time returns have greatly improved, the level of information and updates supplied is greatly appreciated and the service could not be faulted.
Kath & Jim O’Keefe
Following the sale of our business and upon our retirement, Shane Lawler made a very complicated financial situation into an easier understanding for both my wife and I. This gave us both peace of mind that we could enjoy our retirement without worrying that our income would run out.
I have found Shane to be most professional in my dealings with Core Value Financial Advice. I am regularly kept up-to-date with global market information on what is happening to my investment. This puts my mind at ease when major issues are occurring around the world.
Shane Lawler has been my financial adviser now for 7 years. I find him very easy to talk to and he never hesitates to help when needed. I trust him with my super and investments and he never glorifies the picture. In fact, he is more inclined to be on the conservative side which is good, because then you’re not expecting too much. I don’t ever hesitate in recommending him to my clients for advice. Thank you Shane for all your hard work.
