Financial Planning

Harris Financial Planning provides financial advice for your future. Chris Harris founder of Harris Financial Planning, is an authorised representative of Professional Investment Services and can discuss your financial planning goals with you.

Before any investment recommendations are made, Harris Financial Planning would discuss with you your:

  • Risk profile – how much risk you are prepared to take?
  • Current investments
  • Current loans and financial commitments
  • Funds available to invest
  • Intended investment timeframe
  • Investment preferences.

After determining your risk profile and objectives, we create a plan for your investments that is aligned with your short and long term financial goals. If you would like to discuss either starting or expanding your investment portfolio, contact us to schedule a free, no obligation consultation.

What is Financial Planning and how could it benefit me?

Financial Planning is the process whereby an individual moves towards meeting personal and financial goals through the development and implementation of a comprehensive financial plan. This ensures that your personal and financial goals are clearly identified and that a plan to achieve these goals can be established and implemented.

An articulated financial plan allows you to make sure you have a diverse portfolio so all of your eggs don’t end up in one basket. It also makes it easier to monitor your financial progress towards your goals. A comprehensive financial plan will match recommended investments with your individual risk profile and provide diversification across the five main asset classes: Cash, Fixed Interest, Property, Australian Shares and International Shares.

Why invest in managed funds?

Generally, we would construct an investment portfolio including managed funds. We recommend managed funds because the day to day decisions for these funds are made by teams of experts who are continuously monitoring performance and identifying opportunities. We believe that by utilising these experts, our clients benefit from their knowledge and can spend their time in their own areas of expertise. Harris Financial Planning monitors your portfolio and provides recommendations to you based on your goals as well as the performance of the funds.

How often do I receive information about investments?

Clients of Harris Financial Planning can view their portfolios 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Additionally, interim reports can be generated at any time at your request. Every quarter, a detailed investment report will be provided and annually we will undertake a complete review of your investments and recommend any beneficial changes.

What costs are involved?

As every client has a different financial situation, objectives and portfolio, it is difficult to provide a generic set of costs for this service. Anyone is welcome to meet with Chris and have a free, no obligation discussion about potential investments. Following this session, Harris Financial Planning will be able to provide an outline of the costs involved. In compliance with Australian Securities and Investment Commission guidelines, any Statement of Advice or review presented by Harris

Financial Planning will clearly outline all the costs involved in establishing and maintaining any recommended investments.
