FAQ’s

How much do you charge for a retirement plan?

For a comprehensive retirement plan we charge a one-time flat fee of $4,500 plus GST, for individuals, and $5,500 plus GST for couples. We charge a little more for complex situations, but this can be discussed during the initial consultation. Either way, our fees are certainly on the lower side of what most financial planners charge.

How do I know if I need financial advice?

Financial advice is beneficial if you’re about to make a large financial decision or are in your final working years/months. Financial advice can provide you with the precise steps you should take to not only eliminate potential mistakes, but also optimise your financial position.

How is one-off financial advice different from ongoing advice?

One-off financial advice is different from ongoing advice because one-off advice benefits you, whereas ongoing advice benefits your adviser.

For the very large majority of people, one-off advice for a one-time cost will suffice. You can always request additional advice if required in the future. Ongoing advice is expensive and unnecessary, unless you are a very busy professional or business owner who needs constant contact with a financial adviser. Apart from that, ongoing fees provide more support to your adviser’s business than they do to your financial well-being.

Can I trust the advice provided by Toro Wealth?

You can trust the advice provided by Toro Wealth. Our team of financial advisers are very experienced, well-educated and will always provide advice in your best interest. There is no incentive for Toro Wealth advisers to provide advice to the contrary.

Will my personal information be kept confidential?

Absolutely. We take your privacy very seriously and adhere to strict confidentiality protocols to safeguard your personal and financial information.

What if I need help after receiving one-off financial advice?

If you need further assistance, you can always reach out to our team for additional support or schedule another one-off consultation. If significant updates to advice is required due to a change in circumstances, additional written advice may be required. In all instances, further charges are likely to apply, but will be disclosed prior to any work being performed.

Can one-off financial advice help with my long-term goals?

Absolutely. One-off financial advice aims to provide a solid foundation for your financial plan, ensuring it is aligned with your long-term objectives and helps you progress towards achieving those goals.
