Established in 2017, KM Wealth Partners is a fully independent Financial Services company, built upon years of international and local experience in the financial sector. Through our extensive experience, constant innovation, and the use of robust portfolios that over time have exceeded the market average, we've distinguished ourselves from the competition. We've designed our investment portfolios in conjunction with leading experts of the investment industry - a partnership that allows us to provide our clients with transparent investment solutions, mentorship, and relevant updates on market themes, and ultimately, empower them to make informed decisions about their wealth. As an owner-run company we are fully invested in our brand and constantly strive for the best returns and service for our clients.
KM Wealth in conjunction with Analytics, our Discretionary Fund Manager, makes use of a building block approach when constructing our portfolios. Our robust portfolios are designed to match the time horizon of when your needs for income will be, the longer the investment term the more growth assets the portfolio contains. In building the portfolios we make strategic asset allocation decisions as well as geographic allocation decisions. We make use of well-respected local and international asset managers who have proven track records of long term outperformance and blend these with passive index trackers to reduce overall costs and thereby achieve the real returns mandated for each portfolio. We then utilize the Elite planning tool to create a bespoke personalised financial plan for each client thereby giving your long term objectives both structure and a goal.
Risk cover is a crucial part of financial planning but products should be simple yet comprehensive. Your financial exposure is typically highest at a younger age but your needs will change over time, as such it is vital that constant reviews are done on your risk cover. As one progresses through the life stages your asset base should grow and this coupled with no dependants should see your risk needs fall away. There can of course also be a need for business assurance or trust assurance, and a properly structured life policy can assist an estate with liquidity in a time of need. It is always important to understand premium patterns and that cash backs always favour the house. At KM Wealth we firmly believe that you should insure with a Life Company but you invest with an Investment Company.
