Fees & Process
We work on an hourly rate basis. We believe that a plan should not be charged on a per strategy basis, as there are many variables with each strategy and business.
We also like to reward the advisers that have clear, organised and succinct information and SOA requests.
The easier the information is to decipher and translate into an SOA, the quicker we can complete a plan and less it will cost!
The Plan Away Process
