Advice (SOA): Financial Planning

Purpose of this document is to prepare a statement of advice (SOA) on the financial planning for David Smith and Brenda Smith to achieve their financial goals. The advice is to communicate important information to clients in order to make informed decision about their financial portfolios. This document is a Statement of Advice or 'SOA' used to explain my advice, and highlights the important points. Please, be sure to read all sections of the SOA.

Summary of my Advice

I recommend that you sell your shares and reinvest the funds in the managed funds, which will assist you to get a return between $17,000 and $29,000 a year. Moreover, I recommend that you invest 60% of your superannuation in the managed funds. I carefully choose the categories of the managed funds that you could invest your money. Based on my recommendation, you are likely to get returns of more than $2 million from your capital within ten years. However, if you decide to reinvest your returns with your capital, you will get returns of more than $30 million after tax. I also recommend investing the rest of 40% of your superannuation on government bonds.

I recommend that you take insurance coverage to protect your income and yourself from any loss. If you follow my advice, you will be able to achieve your long-term goal and objectives. The risk associated with my advice is that investment carries risks and investment with higher returns carries more risks.
