What are your financial advice options?

4 min read

Seeking financial advice could help you get moving towards your best financial future, and the lifestyle you deserve.

When it comes to financial advice, everyone is different. Some people want a financial mentor who can help them with every decision, others want confirmation on the decisions they’ve already made and others only need help at crucial times, such as when they’re changing jobs, retiring or making a large investment.

BT offers a range of advice options from bite-sized advice to more holistic advice that looks at your complete financial situation. You can choose how you would like to receive this advice, over the phone, via video or in person. The types of advice include:

  • General advice on life insurance, investing and wealth products - general advice can provide you with insights and support on a range of topics including investments, life insurance and super. As the advice for this option is general, it will not take into account your own personal goals and situation.

  • Personal advice on specific needs – this option will give you personal advice that provides you with personalised recommendations on specific areas such as insurance, superannuation or investments based on your own circumstances.

  • Personal advice that looks at your whole picture - you can receive comprehensive advice on your complete financial situation with an in-depth tailored plan based on your personal situation, objectives and needs.

Start out with some General Advice

If you’re looking for general financial product advice and factual information to help you make a decision about your superannuation, insurance or investment needs, then general advice might be for you.
