About Defined Financial Advice

Defined Financial Advice is a privately owned financial advice practice. Our focus is to elevate the life and financial positions of our clients via the provision of high value advice.

Our practice is defined by its values and by the expertise and experience of our Principal Adviser, Dennis Souksamlane.

The values that form our identity include:

1) Smart thinking

Our clients will only be advised by highly qualified financial advisers. Being advised by smart advisers means our clients can access smart thinking strategies which add high value.

2) Straightforward

A great advice service should be straightforward. For our clients on retainer we offer unlimited access to us. As much as our clients need our help, we are there to support them. We also provide formal advice planning meetings to keep our clients on track towards meeting their goals and regular correspondence to keep our clients updated and informed. We offer this for a straightforward flat dollar fee. This provides simplicity, transparency, and no surprises.

3) Cost efficient

We keep things cost efficient so our clients can realise greater value from our advice. We can provide high value advice cost efficiently as we do not have the large overheads that larger firms do. We also have a partnership that provides us with full access to research, administration, and other services that usually only a major financial institution can afford. This means that there are no sacrifices to the quality of our advice services. Being cost efficient means our clients keep a greater share of value created via our advice.

4) A client first approach

We understand that there are only so many hours in a week. To ensure that we can deliver smart advice to our clients in a timely manner we take a client first approach. This means our advisers have a cap on the maximum number of clients they service. This means that when you need your adviser, he or she will have the time for you.
