Professional connections

Working together enhances
the client experience

MANAGING KEY RELATIONSHIPS IS AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF KMD TRUE WEALTH MANAGEMENT.

Our clients frequently have complex lives and assets. By liaising with their accountants, lawyers and other advisers, we get to understand their ‘whole picture’.

Knowing our clients

This joined up approach provides major benefits to our clients. They can be confident we will work with their professional advisers to keep their interests front and centre.

Our client relationships are personal, in depth and long-term and we work with individuals, couples and families. The comprehensive nature of the expert advice we provide encompasses all aspects of financial planning and investment management.

The provision of inter-generational advice and support is a vital part of wealth preservation. We can play a key role in helping educate younger family members on their responsibilities around wealth.

As an expert professional, your focus will also be on ensuring your clients receive the best possible advice, support and service. Evidence of that dedication is a vital consideration where we are looking to build relationships with a view to introducing clients for specific expert advice.


Professional relationships

Our in-depth client knowledge is a major benefit to other expert professionals.
For example, we will recommend to clients that they engage a law firm or accountant to help them get their tax affairs, Wills and LPAs in good order. We advocate that well thought out Will structures and accounting formats are crucial in the achievement of the most efficient financial outcomes. We can also support clients by accompanying them to professional meetings as this can help them obtain clarity and ensure that all relevant aspects are explored.

When working with another expert professional to support the same client’s interests and manage their affairs over the long-term, we will establish a mutually agreed strategic approach at the outset.


Building opportunities

We maintain long term relationships with individuals, couples and families. Our staff to client ratio is high to reflect the comprehensive and focused service we strive to deliver.

Our growth is facilitated through key relationship referrals and introductions. It is critical that we support our clients and our reputation by choosing to work with like-minded expert professionals.

We are only interested in exploring associations with established professional firms who share a similar client-focused culture and reputation. They will be experienced in working with HNW individuals and families over the long-term and recognise the value that close professional associations bring to clients.

Our comprehensive True Wealth Management approach can not only bring your clients financial clarity but may also deepen your relationship with them.
