Financial advice

We're committed to helping you achieve your financial goals

Why AMP?

AMP financial advisers are committed to providing you with quality financial advice and services based on your needs, goals and current situation.

What makes us different? 

We are part of Australia's largest financial adviser network, with more than 3,600 aligned and employed advisers across Australia.

We provide training, support, research and ongoing development to make sure our advisers are equipped with the knowledge, expertise and experience to help you achieve your goals.

What’s more, we want to make sure you understand the services covered and how you'll be charged for them before we come to an agreement with you. AMP advisers will explain their fees and payment options with you upfront, so you can be in control every step of the way.

What is personal financial advice

We think an adviser is like a personal coach for your money. They bring the right knowledge, expertise and guidance to identify your specific goals and help you achieve them. And a little planning early on can go a long way.

Find out how good advice can help build wealth.

The level of involvement you choose depends on your goals and life stage. You may only want to meet with an adviser when something happens that causes you to reconsider your finances, like buying a house or starting a family. Or you may want a comprehensive, long-term plan.

Depending on the advice package you choose, we will be there to give you:

  • access to advice throughout the year
  • a mid-year review of your objectives and strategy
  • an annual review of your goals, financial position and strategy.

Our comprehensive approach to financial advice

We'll work to understand you, your attitude to money and investment risk, what you want to achieve and where you are right now. It may be as simple as rearranging your budget, making smart decisions about saving and investing, or protecting yourself from the unknown.

In understanding what you want, we'll develop a plan and show you how to move from where you are now to where you want to be. As you reach milestones, different life stages and as other things change, elements of your plan may need to change too. We can show you how your money can work harder—earning you more and costing you less. And by identifying any financial risks you are exposed to, we can make sure you look after what's important to you.

What you can expect?

Whenever you want to discuss your finances, we'll take a step-by-step approach. Typically, your adviser will:

  • meet with you to identify and agree on the advice you need
  • collect information and discuss costs upfront
  • define your goals and current position
  • consider your options
  • provide recommendations in writing
  • discuss and agree on recommendations
  • implement recommendations
  • review your objectives and finances to make sure you stay on track.

AMP Cancer Council Pro Bono Program

Advisers within the AMP group have a long history of helping those in the community who are disadvantaged or affected by illness. This carries on from the community legacy of AMP's first agent, Benjamin Short, who was one of the founders of Sydney City Mission (now Mission Australia). Thanks to funding from the AMP Foundation, the Pro Bono Program is available to all advisers within AMP group.

Through the program, people affected by cancer who cannot afford financial advice are matched with a qualified adviser, who donates their time and financial expertise at no cost.

The importance of the program

People diagnosed with cancer often face complex financial issues while battling their illness. This is not surprising given the average cost of cancer can amount to 3.9 times the annual household income. In a report prepared for Cancer Council, Access Economics estimated the average cost of cancer diagnosis to be almost $50,000.

The high costs associated with a cancer diagnosis often causes enormous stress for patients and their families. Over the course of their illness, important financial matters may need to be addressed including:

  • accessing Centrelink benefits

  • applying for early access to superannuation and insurance benefit
  • developing a strategy for investing lump sum insurance payouts
  • developing a budget and ensuring a regular cash flow 
  • planning for the financial future of their family.
