Forwood Planning provides busy people with the strategy, and just as importantly, the support to fulfil their financial goals.
What differentiates Forwood Planning is that I know that busy people need support to follow through on achieving their financial goals. The best strategy is meaningless without action, implementation and review. I want my clients to enjoy their financial journey and not just be worried about the destination (or the paperwork!). Planning your finances should not feel like another obligation or burden in an already busy schedule.
Forwood Planning will not only provide strong financial strategy, but back it up with the necessary support so that clients have more time to enjoy the benefits.
I have been in the finance industry for 17 years working initially as a financial advisor and stockbroker before being employed by some of the country's premiere institutions including Westpac, Macquarie and BT Financial Group. With a love for the industry I started my education with a Bachelor of Commerce and have continued my education throughout my career culminating with obtaining my Masters in Applied Finance in 2013.
I believe in paying for a relationship. I charge a flat dollar fee per annum, and everything else is rebated to the client, including insurance commissions. However if a client wants one off financial advice, I will happily charge an hourly fee, or take the commissions on insurance if this is the only avenue available for the client to pay.
John was recommended on the barefoot investor Facebook group. Best recommendation ever. John gives so much of his time stays in touch checks how I’m going. He’s been brilliant
John has given me advice in areas including budgeting, investments and loan products. His experience and knowledge shows through in his ability to field and address my many questions with patience and wisdom. John explains things very clearly and I feel extremely confident that the advice given to me is perfect for my needs. John is very approachable and I can not recommend him highly enough.
John has been our personal adviser for the past few years and provided us with advice for superannuation, self managed funds and income protection. Not only is he a great guy but John is also very experienced, professional and communicates information effectively, in terms we could easily understand. John has such a deep knowledge and understanding of financial planning that I am confident in recommending John's services for your financial planning needs.
John was extremely helpful to me concerning a number of questions I had relating to transfer funds from a Super Fund to a Allocated Pension Fund. It is obvious he is very knowledgeable about funds and professional in all his responses. I felt much at ease after discussing matters of financial consequences with John.
John has helped me sort out a number of complex financial and insurance issues. All along, I felt supported and that I was receiving sound, considered advice.
