How We Work
we offer two services
1) Insurance Review
At The Professionals Advice Group, we understand that all our clients have a unique set of needs and financial goals. This is reflected in the way our specialists ask you a different set of questions to really understand your situation and determine the best fit for you.
Our business isn’t solely reliant on insurance commission for revenue – so you won’t come away feeling like you have too much or any unnecessary cover.
There are no out of pocket costs for this service – we’re paid a commission from the insurance company. This is really a no-brainer for you and an essential part of an overall financial health check.
Reasons to review your insurance cover:
- It doesn’t cost you anything to review.
- We specialise in working with doctors.
- Insurance is a cost so why pay more than you need to.
- You might be paying for something that you no longer need.
- You might be paying for the wrong mix of cover or not have enough.
- You might have loadings or exclusions that can be removed.
- You might be paying for ‘extras’ you don’t need or have a low probability of claiming on.
- You might not be taking advantage of large sum discounts.
- You might have the wrong ownership structure and have to pay unnecessary tax claim time.
- You might have the wrong policy with the wrong insurer.
This is how our Insurance Review process works:
We conduct detailed research to understand what insurance you currently have and what you’re paying for.
After completing this research, we have a chat either over the phone/video or face to face, to determine if you have too much, not enough or the wrong mix of insurance.
Once we know what you want, we complete a document called a Statement of Advice (SoA), and help you get it all set up correctly. This may involve completing an application or just some paperwork if we’re adjusting what you have.
Once you’re all set up ,we stay in contact and regularly review your cover to ensure you’re only paying for what you need.
2) Financial Advice
Our financial advice process is broken down into four sections, so you have the flexibility to pick and choose, skip a step and revisit later if you know what specific advice you need.
We work hard to give our clients the best value for their money and maintain transparency with our fees and services. We are 100% fee for service and endeavour to create a strong working relationship which generates trust and value.
