Francois du Toit

Fee Based CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER Professional


Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born 22-08-1975 in Hennenman South Africa

During my 16 years in the industry I have noted certain aspects that remain a concern for me. It caused me to do serious introspection to determine what I truly believe and where I fit into the Financial Planning Universe. The results follow.

What is it I do? I practice Financial Planning Law and I provide advice to people which come with full accountability and a degree of risk. That is the crux of what I do.

I studied, gained experience and became certified. I belong to a professional body and adhere to high standards of ethics as would be expected from any other profession.

Currently we are remunerated by commission models when implementing a product. This may lead to conflicts of interest when proposing solutions. At the moment we do not get paid anything for the professional advice that was provided or the work that was done in the course thereof, unless we implement a product.

After careful consideration I have decided to convert my practice to a Fee Based Financial Planning Practice.

This means that I:

1. Provide one complimentary meeting to explain our process, explain our fees and to allow you the opportunity to decide if we will in fact add value to you.
2. Charge fees for providing advice.
3. Charge fees for implementation of advice.
4. Charge fees for providing service.

The benefits for our valued clients and prospective clients are:

1. Truly independent advice that is in their best interest.
2. No conflict of interest.
3. Peace of mind.
4. No lock-in or penalties to clients, that leave them free to leave when they want.
5. They pay for what they need, nothing else.

Next time you see a financial adviser advertising or telling you that they do a FREE financial needs analysis, ask yourself: "If the analysis is free, is it not just a way to sell me something?".
