Chatswood offers management consulting for financial adviser businesses. These are focused on the areas where we have the greatest potential to add value to you, leveraging the breadth of sector information we get from our industry data services.
Helping advisers to set strategy, and gain and maintain a competitive advantage by thinking clearly about who you wish to serve and how. Sensible and strategic, our planning process is focused on identifying the right next steps, whatever scale of organisation we are working with. An external view helps to challenge your assumptions and right-sizing strategy to match your capability. Common questions addressed include acquisition and disposal challenges, whether to offer digital advice, advice process development, and marketing strategy.
What does good advice look like to you? Each business has its own view of what good is. It is often a struggle, either to articulate that view, or to get agreement within the team so that there is an agreed standard that can be used to manage the business. We love those challenges. I help you discover, understand, and document your vision. The documentation of your vision leads to defining your advice process. It becomes your most reliable adviser team management tool.
We offer basic, complex and full sale valuation services. Our valuation service follows a set procedure that works to assist clients with all aspects of valuing a business. Using our database, we are able to complete the valuation service, provide a letter of advice and offer after-service support. In cases where the expertise of a Chartered Accountancy firm is required we integrate well with an accounting valuation approach. A great tool if you want to prove value so that you can borrow, buy, sell, or offer staff incentives based on valuation.
Keep up to date with the changes across the sector with the most comprehensive review of product, price, promotion, people, strategy, and the legal and regulatory environment. All supported with quarterly training that allows your team time to ask questions and make better recommendations based on up to date intelligence.
For advisers keen to invest in advice automation, we can extend to you the lessons of years of investment and research into the field. The challenge is not to merely digitize your current process, but to crush complexity so clients using small screens stay engaged long enough to seek your advice.
