Schedule of Fees and Remuneration Arrangements

Keenan Financial Planning does not offer free financial consultations. Free consultations are very often product and sales driven to offer the broker remuneration and fail to put the clients needs and goals first.

By paying a fee, you are assured of impartiality, independence and a truly objective report on your circumstances.

Such fees are set as follows for 2022
