The question of fees

The forthcoming annual renewals legislation is causing a lot of headaches for advisers in working out how they can provide ongoing service to clients without having to drastically raise advice fees. In this episode of The ifa Show, host Sarah Kendell speaks to Perth adviser Paul Stephan, who recently overhauled his fee structure to provide more flexibility to clients around when and how they seek advice. 

Paul discusses what prompted him to separate administration from advice fees, why more advisers should consider making ongoing service arrangements a thing of the past, and why he believes episodic advice is the way of the future.

Paul also touches on how increases in regulation have affected his business, what types of clients are best suited to episodic advice and how he hopes to keep advice affordable for middle-class consumers.
