ARMSTRONG FINANCIAL ADVICE

What is Research?

Research is a multi-faceted area in which we spend a high proportion of our time within Armstrong Financial Planning.

It includes but is not limited to ensuring we know what you have & whether it is in your best interest to remain in the platform you have.

It also takes in Investment Research to know what is available within the Marketplace so that we can make recommendations that will suit your ongoing needs. We like to be able to speak to the people who are managing the money & understand what their investment philosophies are & whether they suit your needs.

We compare Active Management vs Passive Management, Strategic Asset Allocation vs Dynamic.

There is no one size fits all!!

Threesixty Research

  • A team of in-house research professionals with expertise across managed investments, listed investments and insurance.
  • An in depth library of investment research and insights supported by our phone consultants and email alerts.
  • A number of leading research houses and asset consultants.
    Workshops, roadshows, webinars and newsletters that present insights from ThreeSixty.
  • A robust governance framework mitigating risk and ensuring best practice investment decision making.

Education

We have an obligation to ensure that you understand what you are doing & why. To do this, we like to take the time to educate our clients in where they are at & what options they have & which options will be in their Best Interests. This may be through one on one sessions or through seminars or workshops. This enables our clients to make Smart Decisions around their own situation.

One area of education is around risk management & risk profiling. When all is good, this seems easy but when we are in a crisis, which is most of the time, we ensure you are able to sleep at night with the belief that you have things in hand as far as managing risk is concerned.
