Discover Our Expertise
Achieve Your Goals
At Bell Financial Services we specialise in investment advice. We make sure that our investment recommendations suit your investment time horizon and risk profile. Furthermore, we believe in being proactive in our ongoing investment advice.
Investors purchase assets, whether directly or indirectly, for the returns they provide. Each asset class has its unique return, income, capital growth and taxation characteristics. For example, some assets provide tax benefits such as tax free and tax deferred income or franking credits while the income from other assets may be fully taxed at the investor’s marginal tax rate. All assets have different risk profiles, expected holding periods and expected long-term returns. It is important to match these characteristics with your needs when developing an investment portfolio.
Our investment advice is tax-focused and customised to your personal stage of life and your views.

STRATEGIC FINANCIAL PLANNING
The Client Centred Financial Life Transition Approach
The "financial life transition" strategic planning process focuses on your needs and objectives based on the specific life transitional events that are concerning you. As a result, a much deeper level of thinking is required compared to the traditional short, medium and long-term goals process used by most financial advisers. We have found the "financial life transition" process delivers advice that is deeply focused on your concerns and always in your best interest.
The Financial Life Transition planning process:
An initial consultation will be carried out free of charge and obligation. This meeting will be used to determine the life transition events that are concerning you and your needs and goals in relation to each event.
In the days following the initial consultation we will send you an engagement letter that restates the life transition events that we will be advising on including your needs and goals associated with each event. This will be known as your financial project. The engagement letter will also outline our fees for providing you with our advice and its implementation.
Once you have signed and returned the engagement letter we will start work on a strategic plan for your financial project. We may also require another meeting to discuss the possible strategies for your project so that we can make sure that we achieve an outcome that you understand and are comfortable with.
Statement of Advice (SoA)
Once an appropriate strategy is agreed upon we will complete a statement of advice and forward it to you for your perusal. We will then have another meeting where you can ask any further questions about our advice before signing off on the SoA. After you sign the SoA we will then implement the advice.
In most cases, your financial project will require ongoing management. Economic conditions vary, legislation changes and your personal situation is likely to alter over time. Therefore, to make sure that your financial project achieves its desired outcome it is very important to constantly review the strategies underpinning your financial project and make alterations when necessary. We offer various levels of ongoing service. The recommended level of ongoing service will vary depending on various aspects of your financial project. The details of the ongoing service will be provided to you in a client service agreement.
