We Show You How To Split Planning And Advice

We train, mentor, and support a growing global on-line financial planning community. We share the business blueprint and toolkit to set up a successful non-intermediating financial planning process.  Our model is copyright free, free to modify, share, and use commercially. Learn a unique planning process that creates and protects wealth for your clients and enjoy monthly one-to-one on-line coaching support to help you develop a fast-growing, future-proofed, profitable, valuable, and sustainable business.


Financial Planning Is Not A Regulated Activity

We forecast a decline in the heavily regulated adviser-distributors, a cash cow. There is a rising star, the unregulated productless holistic planner. In some markets the regulator has split advice and distribution to accelerate the transition from product-centred adviser to productless holistic planner. We too split advice from distribution. The result is a non-regulated activity we call non-intermediating financial planning. Regulation is unnecessary as there can be no mis-selling in a productless service. Because we are non-intermediating, we can act as the personal regulator for the client.

What Makes Us Different?

We Sell Plans Not Products

With over 30 years’ Chartered experience, providing expert professional advice to many thousands of financial planners, we know what it takes to help advisers and their customers achieve their future goals. As the world’s first non-intermediating financial planning network, our members deliver general advice and financial education digitally to create and protect wealth in every area of their clients' lives. This requires that we unlearn product sales processes and replace them with digital delivery of product-less holistic financial planning.
