Education is a natural barrier to entry
“Knowledge is power” and so congratulations on educating yourself by completing this course. Hopefully, you feel motivated to embrace self-determination and have the confidence to explore your options, ask the right questions and make good decisions based on the things that count.
Community expectations are changing. According to the PIPA Annual Investor Sentiment Survey 2019, 83% of property investors recognise the need to be educated and 93% agree it’s important to engage professionals who have the authority and experience to provide qualified, competent and comprehensive advice.
The decision to invest, regardless of the asset class or risk profile, should be made based on qualified, expert and experienced advice.
The investor who is most likely to experience success is the one who is prepared to take advantage of the specialist advice available. They gather a reliable and trusted talent bank around them, understanding that education, guidance, research, planning and support are crucial in the investment journey.
As we have already covered, in the property investment space, in particular, everyone is an expert, or so they think. Often their opinions are not based in fact, but crowd mentality, media sensationalism and lack of experience and sometimes from fear.
Without a clear strategy and advice tailored to their specific circumstances and taking into account all the essential considerations, a potential investor is at risk of ill-advised decisions, following the crowd and entering into risky investments or putting ‘all their eggs in one basket’.
The results are likely to be a disappointment and ultimately, a smaller pot of wealth for the future.
The advice model assumes that the advisor works in the best interest of the client, not their own.
Through transparency and rigorous compliance with legislation and community expectations, our Advisors qualify for Professional Indemnity Insurance for the advice they provide – a real vote of confidence!

It requires a high degree of competence to source and meaningfully interpret and synthesise large amounts of information and to be able to identify and evaluate” the things that count” expertly.
Below is an example of some of the sources our advisors consult to verify and refine their strategy to make evidence-based recommendations. It isn’t an exhaustive list. Nor does it include the supplementary location-specific resources that would also be reviewed such as Council websites, developer collateral, commissioned studies and the first-hand knowledge of the ‘boots on the ground’ insights of our Acquisitions Manager and team.
It indicates our commitment to providing quality information and sound recommendations on the “balance of evidence”.
