5 How will I pay for these services? Parkhill Financial Planning will charge you a fee for the services we provide to you. Initial consultation The fee for an initial consultation is $198 including GST unless otherwise agreed prior to the meeting. This will include a discussion of Parkhill s service offering, as well as a discussion & data collection of your financial circumstances and objectives. During this discussion we will agree whether or not to proceed with the development of comprehensive written recommendations. Post initial consultation service fees If it is agreed that we will prepare a written SOA a fee will be charged for preparing this report. The amount charged depends on the degree of complexity of your plan. Typically you will expect to pay between $1,100 and $4,400 (plus GST). Generally, the cost associated with preparation of a SOA is charged on hourly ad hoc basis. If we are engaged on an ad hoc basis or in cases where extensive work is required, the hourly fee for written recommendations and administration work is as follows: Senior Adviser: = $250 plus 10% GST = $275 per hour Associate Adviser: = $200 plus 10% GST = $220 per hour Paraplanner: = $150 plus 10% GST = $165 per hour Administration Support: = $70 plus 10% GST = $77 per hour Implementation of recommendations When you decide to proceed with our recommendations, you may be charged in either of the following forms: Parkhill Financial Planning will normally charge you for a fee of up to 2% plus GST of the value of the funds invested up to a maximum $200,000. The minimum initial investment fee is $275 including GST. You may choose to pay this account personally, or have the amount deducted from your investment. For example on funds of $100,000, the fee will be $2,000 plus 10% GST = $2,200. For Insurance products we will receive commission from the product provider at rates which will be disclosed to you in our SOA. These may be up to 110% of the first year s premium, though normally they will be around 80%. For example on a term life policy paying an initial commission of 80% with a premium of $300 this would equate to $240 plus 10% GST = $264. Ongoing Portfolio Management and Reviews When you decide to engage with Parkhill Financial Planning on an ongoing basis you will be charged in the following manner: Parkhill Financial Planning charges a tiered ongoing fee for portfolio management and reviews which you may choose to pay either personally or it may be deducted on an ongoing basis from your investment. The tiered fee charged is as follows (all fees below include GST): o $1 - $250,000 = 1.10% o $250,001 - $500,000 = 0.93% o $500,001 - $1,000,000 = 0.77% o $1,000,001 - $2,000,000 = 0.60% o $2,000,001 - $4,000,000 = 0.55% o $4,000,001 + = Negotiable (Note: Product providers may pay ongoing commissions to Parkhill Financial Planning. Where practical, any ongoing payments will be reduced to zero and the ongoing management charges deducted from your investment by the manager will be reduced accordingly. This is not always practical. Any such payments will be disclosed in our SOA).
6 Or We will receive ongoing commissions from the product provider or intermediary at rates which will be disclosed to you in our SOA. For investment products these payments generally vary between 0.10% and 1.00% per annum. Therefore using 1.00% as an example on an investment of $20,000 this would equate to $200 per annum. For Insurance products, these payments may be up to 33% of the second and subsequent year s premium per annum. Therefore, on an insurance premium of $300 this would equate to $99 p.a. Who has an Interest in these Services? Product providers or managers may deduct fees from the products recommended by Parkhill Financial Planning. Such fees will be disclosed by the product providers in their Product Disclosure Statements.
