How to use the study plan
We recommend that you use the study plan for this subject to help you manage your time to complete the assignment within your enrolment period. Your study plan is in the KapLearn Financial Planning subject room.
How to use the sample case study and SOA in KapLearn
The sample case study provides a model to help you prepare your SOA for this assignment. The case study explains the process that is undertaken to develop the SOA with reference to an example and it is a very useful resource. Download the sample SOA and refer to it as you work through the learning materials for this subject.
Before you start work on this assignment, go back to the sample SOA and:
• compare how the SOA matches with the goals and objectives identified in the case study
• consider what information has been included in the SOA
• consider why this information has been included.
This exercise will help you prepare an SOA for this assignment that addresses your client’s goals. Please bear in mind that not all SOAs are exactly alike in their construction, but all have common heading topics within them. Accordingly, there may be minor differences between the sample SOA and the SOA template in this assignment. However, all the required compliance elements will be included in both formats.
Part 1: Instructions for completing and submitting
this assignment
Completing the assignment
The assignment
For this assignment you are required to complete the following tasks:
In your assessment workbook:
• answer the assignment questions as they relate to sections 1, 3, 4, 6 and 7 of the case study
• complete the template SOA for your client, using the data in the case study, the fact finder and risk profile
• complete the two (2) cash flow tables
• calculate the five year projections.
The information and resources that can assist you in answering the questions in this assignment can be primarily sourced from the Foundations of Financial Planning text and the sample case study. Some data will have to be externally sourced, but the assignment template will clearly indicate where this is necessary.
You are expected to analyse the 11 areas covered in the data analysis stage, explained in Topic 2, as well as review the sample case study and sample SOA. Additionally, you will need to weigh up the client’s opinion against your own analysis to determine the important areas that need to be addressed for the client.
Although the case study may indicate that the client does not wish to have advice provided about a specific area, you need still to evaluate the situation, provide clear reasons as to why, or why not, review the area, and make referrals to specialists if necessary in the relevant sections of the template.
You do not have to provide retirement planning calculations and recommendations.
However, you must consider the appropriateness of all the investments held by Jessica. If you recommend any change to her current asset allocation (including those in her superannuation fund), you must explain why this action is appropriate. That is, why there is a need to change the asset allocation, or to replace or sell an investment.
With regard to insurance, you are not expected to provide a detailed analysis of Jessica’s needs. However, this area still needs to be examined. If your analysis shows that she requires additional insurance and could benefit from a review, you should advise her of this. Alternatively, clearly explain why you believe her current cover is sufficient.
More information regarding requirements for providing advice is included throughout the assignment.
Word count
The word count shown with each question is purely indicative. You may exceed the word count by a minimal amount, however, please do not include additional information which is outside the scope of the question.
The Jessica Bigge case study
The case study steps you through the financial planning process, from initial contact with Jessica Bigge, to the development and documentation of a financial strategy as an SOA to meet her needs.
Fact finder and risk profile
The fact finder for Jessica and her risk profile are provided. You will find these in Appendix 1.
The data in these documents has been used to complete some of the sections in the SOA.
You will need to refer to these documents to complete the financial position tables for your client.
Additional research
You will be required to source additional information from other organisations in the financial services industry to find the appropriate product/s to meet Jessica’s requirements, and perhaps to calculate your service fees.
Submitting the assignment
You must submit your completed assignment in a compatible Microsoft Word document. You need to save and submit this entire document — not just Appendix 2: Financial planning questions (assessment workbook).

Part 2: The case study
Introduction
You are a financial planner for EANWB Financial Planning and authorised to provide financial product advice on a range of investments (excluding direct shares), superannuation and retirement planning, and insurance and risk protection.
You are also able to provide taxation information that is incidental to the advice provided. In other words, you can provide information about any potential tax savings or tax benefits that could result from your recommendations, but you must refer the client to a tax professional for specific tax advice.
You do not have the authority to provide estate planning or property advice and you must refer clients to suitable professionals should you identify they need advice in areas for which you have not been appropriately authorised and trained. (Refer to the sample SOA and the wording used regarding tax, estate planning and real estate, as well as the summary of what advice areas are covered, and what are not, at the beginning of the sample SOA.)
Section 1: Meeting your client
The first phone call
Jessica Bigge has agreed to speak with you following a suggestion made to her by her bank’s personal lending officer who knows you and is respectful of the quality advice you provide to your clients. She was in the process of successfully organising a loan to purchase her car at the time.
Jessica is unsure of what is involved in personal financial planning, but concedes that planning for her future financial objectives could be of value. She agrees to have her contact details passed on to you by the bank’s lending officer so that you can tell her about what is involved in the financial planning process, what the possible benefits might be to her, and costs involved.
When you phone Jessica, you provide her with details about the financial planning process, and why you will need to ask her for certain types of financial information. You stress that you work for a licensee (a person authorised by the Government to deal in financial products) and any information she gives you will be treated confidentially. You let her know that this information will only be used to provide the financial advice you consider will meet her needs. You tell her all this information is in the Financial Services Guide (FSG) that you will send her.
Jessica is reassured by your introduction so you proceed. You explain you need her to contribute to the compilation of a financial profile in order to help you work out how she can best meet her financial goals. This means that she will need to tell you what she owns, what she owes, what she earns and her living expenses. She can record all this information in the fact finder you will send her with the FSG. You inform Jessica that the fact finder also includes a risk profile section and the information she provides you will give you sense of her appetite for different financial planning strategies.
You make a date and time with Jessica to come to your office and take down her address and phone numbers. You ask Jessica to bring along to the meeting her completed fact finder and as much financial information as she can, such as income details, expenses, superannuation, insurance details, etc.
When you have concluded the call, you make a file note about the conversation including the date, the potential client’s name, and the name of the person who referred her to you. This is the start of your paper trail. You also complete some of the initial details in your data collection form so that it looks like Table 1.
Finally you write to Jessica, as promised during your initial conversation, and include the fact finder, the FSG and a checklist of the information she needs to bring to the meeting.

The first meeting
Jessica arrives at your office for the meeting. After greeting her and offering her a glass of chilled water, she confirms that she received your package of documents and that she has filled in the fact finder and the risk profile.
You then take her through the key elements of the FSG, including your role and capacity to assist her with her planning needs and your company’s fees. You make sure that Jessica understands this information before you proceed to the next step.
Collecting the data
You learn the following information about Jessica through a process of thorough and polite questioning. From time to time she provides you with a relevant document to confirm her financial situation. You confirm the details in the fact finder as you proceed.
Jessica’s current situation
Jessica, born 15 July 1986, is single with no dependants, and lives in a rented flat for which she pays rent of $460 per week.
Jessica is a marketing manager for a mining engineering company and has been with that firm for six years.
Jessica earns $70,000 p.a. and receives superannuation guarantee (SG) contributions from her employer in addition to this.
Jessica owns a new Mazda CX5 that she recently borrowed $39,000 from the bank to purchase.
The loan is over five years at a fixed rate of 10% p.a. with the repayments being $850 per month. There is a prepayment fee of $175, though this fee is waived if the loan is refinanced to another product with the same bank. The car has full comprehensive insurance with an annual premium of $1500.
Jessica’s needs and objectives
During your conversation with Jessica it becomes apparent that her principal objective is to save for her own home. At this stage she is unsure of the location where she would like to buy but it would be a unit.
On her own calculations, based on what she feels comfortable in borrowing and with her savings, she could afford a unit up to a purchase price of $550,000. She also said that she would like to have saved at least 15% of the purchase price and if possible, be able to purchase her first home in no more than 5 years time.

[caption id="attachment_12516" align="alignleft" width="583"]HND Assignment Help HND Assignment Help[/caption]

She is also concerned about the debt she has incurred buying her car and would like to know the benefits and ramifications of paying it off early, particularly in terms of her primary objective of saving for, and purchasing, her first home.
Jessica admits that she knows very little about the sharemarket, how it works, or what it actually means to own shares. However, she is keen to learn more about it following her success with the purchase of Westpac Banking Corporation shares.
Jessica is in good health and believes the insurances within her superannuation fund provide adequate cover.
Jessica does not place superannuation and retirement planning as a priority at the moment, saying that retirement is a long way off and her employer looks after her superannuation anyway.
Jessica does not have a will or powers of attorney in place, and is not overly concerned about the adequacy of her estate planning.
Superannuation
Jessica has $32,000 in her employer’s default superannuation fund, the ABXY Super Fund, and is invested in a ‘balanced’ portfolio. Jessica joined the fund on 19 January 2007.
Jessica does not make any additional contributions to her superannuation fund.
The fund has returned the following, after fees and tax:
2007/08 2008/09 2009/10 2010/11 2011/12 2012/13
–4.5% -9.5% 8.9% 10.2% 2.1% 8.3%
The investment objective of the fund is to achieve returns after tax and fees that exceed the inflation rate, as measured by the CPI, by at least 3% p.a. over rolling five-year periods.
The asset allocation for Jessica’s balanced growth in her superannuation fund is:
Cash 7%
Australian fixed interest 12%
International fixed interest 10%
Australian equities 30%
Property 18%
International equities 23%
Insurance
Jessica’s superannuation fund provides a death and total and permanent disability (TPD) benefit of $50,000 in addition to her accumulated superannuation value. The premium is $1.50 per week for this level of cover and is deducted from her fund.
Jessica has no other personal insurance cover.
Jessica’s car has full comprehensive insurance with an annual premium of $1500.
Jessica also has home contents insurance cover of $20,000 with an excess of $100 including legal liability cover of up to $20 million. Jessica pays $30 per month from her credit card for this policy.
Jessica has adequate private health insurance cover that she pays $110 per month for on her credit card. This premium includes the private health insurance rebate.
Jessica has advised you that she is comfortable with the insurances she has in place and does not believe that she requires any further advice at this time.
Investments
Jessica has $57,000 in a term deposit earning 4.15% p.a. that is due to mature shortly. She plans to use these funds and future savings towards the purchase of her own home in about 5 years time, or earlier if possible.
Following advice from her uncle at a family barbecue, Jessica purchased 59 Westpac Banking Corporation shares on 25 November 2008 at $16.93. The full dividend received for the year is $1.66 per share fully franked and dividends received are not reinvested.
Jessica also has a small transaction account where her pay is deposited. This account is used to pay various expenses and her credit card. The account, on average, would have $1000 and it does not receive any interest.
Other information
Jessica has a credit card with a limit of $5000 that she uses for all her general expenses and entertainment. However, she does not spend up to her limit and her average expenses are $900 per month, (including home contents and health insurance), which she repays within the interest free period.
Each year Jessica goes on a two-week cruise with a friend, which costs $2500.
In addition, she usually spends two weeks with her family during her employer’s Christmas leave period.
Jessica is very healthy and has taken very little sick leave and has accumulated 54 days sick leave.
Other expenses include a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation of $10 per week, tax deductible ‘bucket’ donations of $10 p.a. to disaster relief funds, and accountant’s expenses of $150 p.a.
Jessica does not have any dependants and both her parents are well, fit and active. She has an older brother who is married with two young children and a younger sister who still lives with her parents.
Risk profiling
Jessica completed the risk profile section in the fact finder prior to attending the meeting. The completed fact finder and risk profile are in Appendix 1 of the assignment.
Closing the interview
Prior to concluding your meeting with Jessica, you review the information provided to her to check that it is complete and accurate.
Jessica is naturally curious about the next step in the process. You answer some additional questions she has about what happens next. You explain that with her agreement you will prepare a written report, an SOA, based on the information she has just shared with you. The SOA will be a financial plan detailing a number of actions she could take to meet her financial goals
Jessica agrees to proceed to the next stage of the financial planning process, and you make an appointment with her to present the plan in a fortnight.
There is a series of questions relating to Section 1 in the assessment workbook that you need to answer. Your answers to these questions are your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to establish a relationship with a client.
Section 2: The fact finder and risk profile
After this meeting and when you are in professional practice you would normally take the time now to complete a fact finder.
However, this template has already been prepared for you based on the information given by Jessica. You will find that fact finder and risk profile in Appendix 1.
Take some time now to familiarise yourself with Jessica’s fact finder and risk profile to confirm that all the information recorded is correct. You will need to refer to this data when you are completing the SOA, the cash flow tables and the five–year projections.
Section 3: Analysing the data
The next step in the financial planning process is to analyse the data provided by Jessica. You do this to ensure that you can fully understand her financial situation and needs and are therefore in a position to design a plan that addresses her goals and objectives.
By analysing the data provided under the following headings you can now start thinking of the strategic options that may be appropriate for Jessica, leading you to then preparing a financial planning strategy that is designed to meet her needs:
• current position
• debt management
• risk/protection
• savings
• investment
• retirement funding
• future income stream
• social security issues (if any) and implications
• present and future taxation issues
• estate planning.
There is a series of questions relating to Section 3 in the assessment workbook that you need to answer. You will use your answers for Section 3 to help you decide on your recommendations for Jessica. Your answers to these questions are your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to analyse a client’s needs in preparation for developing a strategy that aligns with their requirements.
Section 4: The strategy
Now that you have analysed the data and selected strategies that could be appropriate, you are in a position to start drafting the preferred strategy you believe is appropriate for Jessica. You will then be able to research and select possible products that can support the implementation of that strategy. All of this information you will use in your SOA for Jessica.
There is a series of questions relating to Section 4 in the assessment workbook that you need to answer. You will use your answers for Section 4 to help you decide on your recommendations for Jessica. Your answers to these questions are your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to develop a strategy that aligns with her requirements.
Section 5: Completing the SOA
When you have determined the financial planning recommendations you believe are appropriate for Jessica’s needs, you then need to prepare her SOA. Use the SOA template provided in the assessment workbook.
Section 6: Presenting the SOA
You meet with Jessica as arranged to present her SOA. You take the time to outline the proposed strategies and recommendations, confirming throughout that Jessica understands the plan and how it has been designed to meet her needs.
Satisfied with your explanation of the plan and responses to each of her questions, Jessica agrees to go ahead with your recommendations.
There is a series of questions relating to Section 6 in the assessment workbook that you need to answer. Your answers to these questions are your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to continue to engage your client.
Section 7: Providing ongoing service
Jessica is not sure she will have time for regular reviews of her financial plan. She expresses the opinion that the advice seems comprehensive with no need at this stage to commit to scheduled reviews.
There is a series of questions relating to Section 7 in the assessment workbook that you need to answer. The questions are your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to work with a client to implement a plan over the longer term.
Appendix 1: Fact finder and risk profile — Jessica Bigge
Important notice to customers
Your planner must act in your best interest and provide appropriate advice when making an investment or insurance recommendation.

Single with few financial commitments: You are keen to accumulate wealth for the future. Some funds must be kept available for enjoyment, such as cars, clothes, travel and entertainment. 50?
A couple without children: You may be preparing for the future by establishing and furnishing a home. There are a lot of things you need to buy. You are probably better off financially now than you may be in the future. 40
Young family: This is the peak home purchasing stage. You have a mortgage and a very small amount of savings. Probably dissatisfied with your financial position and the amount of money saved. 35
Mature family: You are in your peak earning years and have got the mortgage under control. Many partners also work and any children are growing up and have either left home or require less supervision. You are starting to think about retirement, although it may be many years away. 30
Preparing for retirement: You probably own your own home and have few financial commitments, however, you want to ensure that you can afford a comfortable retirement. Interested in travel, recreation and self-education. 20
Retired: No longer working you must rely on existing funds and investments to maintain your lifestyle. You may be receiving the pension and are keen to enjoy life and maintain your health. 10
What return do you reasonably expect to achieve from your investments?
A return without losing any capital. 10
3–7% p.a. 20
8–12% p.a. 30?
13–15% p.a. 40
Over 15% p.a. 50

comfortable with?
Preferably guaranteed returns, before tax savings 10
Stable, reliable returns, minimal tax savings 20?
Some variability in returns, some tax savings 30
Moderate variability in returns, reasonable tax savings 40

Investor profile total points 220
INVESTOR RISK PROFILE SUMMARY
0–70 Defensive
You are a conservative investor. Risk must be very low and you are prepared to accept lower returns to protect capital. The negative effects of tax and inflation will not concern you, provided that your initial investment is protected
71–150 Moderate
You are a cautious investor seeking better than basic returns, but risk must be low. Typically an older investor seeking to protect the wealth that you have accumulated, you may be prepared to consider less aggressive growth investments
151–230 Balanced
You are a prudent investor who wants a balanced portfolio to work towards medium to long-term financial goals. You require
an investment strategy that will cope with the effects of tax and inflation. Calculated risks will be acceptable to you to achieve
good returns
231–300 Growth
You are an assertive investor, probably earning sufficient income to invest most funds for capital growth. Prepared to accept higher volatility and moderate risks, your main concern is to accumulate assets over the medium to long term. You require a balanced portfolio, but more aggressive investment strategies may be included
301–350 High growth
You are an aggressive investor prepared to compromise portfolio balance to pursue potentially greater long-term returns.
Your investment choices are diverse, but carry with them a higher level of risk. Security of capital is secondary to the potential
for wealth accumulation

Section 5: Completing the SOA
When you have determined the financial planning recommendations you believe will meet Jessica’s needs then you need to prepare her SOA. Use the SOA template provided in this assignment to produce your SOA for Jessica.
Tip: The assessor is looking for an SOA that is of a professional standard and is suitable for presentation to a client. This means your spelling and grammar needs to be correct and that you have written your recommendations so the client can understand them. Remember: the SOA is an important communication tool you can use to engage your client. A hastily written and poorly presented SOA does not engender client trust or confidence in your expertise or professionalism.
Important instructions for completing the SOA
a. Use the SOA template provided.
SOA preparation software: The use of financial planning software and dealer templates to prepare your SOA is not permitted. Submissions that exhibit excessive reliance on SOA templates may be considered a case of plagiarism or collusion and may not be considered to be a reasonable attempt at the assessment.
b. Your SOA must include strategy recommendations for:
• debt management
• personal investment and savings
• asset allocation (including superannuation).
c. You must prepare an implementation schedule detailing all of the recommendations in the SOA and provide the details in the implementation schedule within the SOA.
d. You must also prepare, using an Excel spreadsheet, a table showing the projected balance of Jessica’s investment portfolio, over a five-year period, before and after your recommendations. This task will be important in showing how your strategies may satisfy Jessica’s primary financial objective.
d. List any assumptions you have made to complete your SOA on the assumptions page at the end of the SOA. Assumptions will generally be made:
• regarding missing background information on the clients
• in regards to calculations of future returns from your recommended investments
• for clarity in relation to any of your recommendations
• for fees relating to the products you have recommended.
e. While you are not required to provide specific recommendations in the following areas for this assignment, you will need to provide, in the ‘Things you need to consider’ section of your SOA, appropriate comments about any issues you have identified. Those areas are:
• personal insurance
• superannuation
• estate planning.
f. Your investment product recommendations will need to be based on the research you conducted in section 4 Part B. Please do not include any product disclosure statements (PDSs) with your assignment submission.
