Client Communication

A key aspect of goals based advice is linking the advice to the performance of each goals based portfolio. The traditional approach to advice and investing typically looks at an investment result in isolation of a goal, whereas, goals based advice and investing offers a tight link between the two. For example, the client communications moves to conversations around whether the performance of the various portfolios are on track to deliver on the goals a client might have. Importantly, this stops investors looking at markets, and gets them focused on the goals and the risks within each portfolio to achieve them. This is very different to risk profiling and far more engaging.
