Debt Structuring & Mortgages
APW have associations with mortgage specialists that work with the major banks and brokers to access lower lending rates and optimal debt structures.
APW takes a holistic approach in understanding your overall assets, investment preference and risk profile. Fixed assets (direct property) and liquid assets (equities, bonds, term deposits and cash) are both important. These are taken into account and balanced towards your risk profile. We actively advise to de-risk your portfolio or take opportunistic tactical positions, while keeping in line with your fundamental investment preference and carefully monitoring the market.
Before any investment advice is provided, we will invest time into your risk profile and together establish a benchmark/ strategic assets allocation. It is a foundation which our client and we will discuss, explain, understand and agree upon. Once agreed upon we will advise and guide our client’s asset mix toward their desired benchmark while daily monitoring market prices, maximising tax efficiencies and our client’s investment time-frame or stage of life.
On a daily basis we monitor the events from our global counterparties (US, UK, Japan, China & economies of the EU). APW consider the impact these economies will have on our local economy, shares and individual client portfolios. We also take into account any corporations, capital raising, share purchase plans, rights issues or IPOs that are on offer for our individual client holdings. Our Advisers will then individually contact each client depending on their circumstances, stage of life and equity holdings to provide active advice to maximise their equity holdings with minimum risk.
We research, review and consider each Corporate Bond presented to our firm. Following this We assist our clients’ to understand their investment, maximise their overall return with calculated minimal risk.
There are a variety of corporate bonds traded on ASX. Corporate bonds can vary quite markedly and therefore it is important that you read the prospectus or term sheet for an individual bond to understand its terms. We assess the creditworthiness of the issuer of the bond as that too can vary markedly between issuers.
As a general rule, safer bonds with a better credit standing promise lower yields to maturity than other corporate bonds with similar maturities. ‘Junk bonds’, also known as ‘high yield bonds’, are speculative-grade bonds which typically will have a low credit standing and therefore promise higher yields to maturity than other corporate bonds with similar maturities. The important rule to remember is the higher the bond issuer’s perceived credit risk, the higher the bond’s yield needs to be to compensate you for that risk.
We regularly review, attend meetings and updates with various professional fund managers to ensure clients’ monies are invested with the highest quality assets managers.
Managed funds pool the money of individual investors. The combined capital is invested by a professional fund manager, in some cases being applied across a range of asset classes such as shares, bonds, property and infrastructure assets.
Managed funds are popular with investors as they make it easy to invest. One transaction can provide access to a range of underlying investments and to diversify your investment across different asset classes and market sectors. They also provide access to investments that may otherwise be out of reach.
Sound financial planning includes establishing ways of protecting against unforeseen circumstances that might arise on life’s journey. We can help you develop a risk management plan to do just that.
Central to managing risk in your financial plans is protecting you and your family’s assets to help ensure that your goals can be achieved regardless of what life might throw at you.
Whether it’s life; trauma; total & permanent disability; or income protection, APW will assist with a comprehensive needs and risk analysis to help you carefully select what type and level of cover best suits your circumstances and goals. We also provide advice in protecting the people in your businesses through Business Expenses and Key Man Risk Cover.
