NatFin is a leading financial services firm providing a wide range of investment management and wealth management services. First and foremost; NatFin believe in getting to know our clients very well. In order to give suitable advice we must know each client individually because they all have their own goals and aspirations. Financial Planning is a very dynamic subject and that is why a client’s needs and goals must be identified, because it also is dynamic. One size most certainly won’t fit all.


After getting to know each individual client we start developing a unique financial plan to help them reach their objectives. It is important to acknowledge that a client’s goals might change over time. This is why reviewing our clients’ portfolios on a regular basis is of the utmost importance. During these review sessions we determine whether the financial plan set in place is still suitable to reach the client’s said goals. If not, we need to tweak and/or adjust the parameters to reach the new goal.


To emphasise, the financial planning process is a continuous process. Goals will only be reached if the client and planner walk the road together.
The focus of this document is on Financial Advice and more specific your individual financial plan. Additional information will be made available on request.
