What is “Financial Planning Compensation”?

A financial planning compensation claim helps individuals claim lost money as a result of financial planning negligence as well as general business advice, personal accounting advice, wealth-creation advice and taxation advice.

Below is a checklist to determine if the financial advice you received was negligent:

  1. Were your relevant personal circumstances and information obtained by the financial planner?
  2. Did the financial planner consider your risk profile?
  3. Did the financial planner consider your existing net asset portfolio?
  4. Did the financial planner consider your current and future cash flow requirements?
  5. Did the financial planner consider the diversification of asset classes?
  6. Did the financial planner develop a suitable financial strategy for you and your needs?
  7. Did the financial planner act independently, without a conflict of interest from scheme promoters?
  8. Did the financial planner provide alternative and less costly options?
  9. Did the financial planner sufficiently match the appropriateness of the investment to your needs?
  10. Did the financial planner communicate the forecasted investment returns correctly?
  11. Did you receive statements of advice for each of your investments to understand the investment strategy?
  12. Did you receive advice regarding alternative investment strategies?
  13. Was the advice you received in line with professional standards?
  14. Did you understand the advice?
