In today’s competitive environment you need a Licensee that can provide the support and services you need to run a successful financial advisory practice, including the flexibility to offer your clients the solutions and services that meet their needs and circumstances. There’s little point in being beholden to an institutionally-owned Licensee that dictates you must promote their house brand products.
At Capstone we’re different.
We’re free of the shackles of institutional ownership, which means our advisers are able to offer solutions tailored to their client’s needs, not the demands of the Licensee. We offer a broad Approved Product List (APL) that’s regularly reviewed and updated – allowing you the freedom to offer your clients the best solutions to their needs and we back this up with a full range of in-house support services to help you to grow your business.
Our technology support services include customisation of Xplan tools, thread, processes, templates and workflow modules. We also operate our own Xplan help desk during business hours (AEST) so technology support is only a phone call away.
Our Professional Standards team possess a detailed understanding of the regulatory requirements of the advice process and provide ongoing advice, reviews and audits to support you.
Your time is precious. Our paraplanning professionals are skilled in the preparation of advice documents (Statement of Advice) and work closely with advisers to deliver a responsive and efficient service – allowing you more time to spend with your clients.
Marketing and Communications
Client acquisition and retention is the lifeblood of your business. Capstone’s marketing and communications team provide professional advice and guidance in relation to brand development, digital marketing (including PPC and SEM), website development and evolution, as well as client facing marketing material including, flyers, corporate profiles, a quarterly newsletter, market updates and bulletins.
Capstone offers a comprehensive Approved Product List (APL), which is regularly reviewed by our Professional Standards Team. Our preferred research house is Lonsec.
