Pricing Advice

PRICING FINANCIAL ADVICE IS A CHALLENGE FOR MOST AUSTRALIAN ADVISERS.

They share this with their peers around the world. Pricing is a critical driver of not only profit, but also client engagement and sustainability of every advice firm.  Since 2007, Elixir Consulting has specialised in this complex area, and we have assisted hundreds of advisers to improve their pricing model, and their bottom line.
Charging a fee for service is now a compulsory business practice for all financial advisers in Australia, and yet it continues to be an area that is challenging, and requires frequent revision.

Our pricing expertise is bottled in a variety of ways:
