Australias Largest And Most Awarded Independent Financial Planning Practice Celebrates Independence Day
Traditionally July 4th is a celebration reserved for the declaration of America's independence from the British empire. At Tupicoffs on the 4th of July we celebrate our own Independence Day. Tupicoffs signed its own financial planning declaration of independence years ago which was a significant milestone in our 47 year history.
There are only a very small number of financial planners in Australia who meet the definition of Independent. We are currently home to 9 out of 81 of Australia's truly Independent Financial Planners. This makes us the largest Independent Financial Planning practice in the country. Independence means we do not receive any form of commission or sales incentive. This in turn helps us avoid any conflicts of interest in the advice we give. Similarly, if ownership or control exists with a financial product provider, then the term Independent cannot be used.
Independence is paramount when identifying who we are and what we do. "Independent' is a controlled term under the corporation's law. Only financial planners who can meet a rigorous set of standards set under Section 923A of the Corporations Act can describe themselves as independent or unbiased.
More and more consumers are seeking out independent financial advice and Tupicoffs are one of the few practices in Australia that can genuinely respond to that need.
