A group of industry insiders has taken a financial stake in FinPal (www.finpal.com.au), a provider of business and client management software for financial advisers, mortgage brokers and accountants.
DBA Advisory and FinPal have announced a partnership that aims to significantly reduce the cost of delivering financial advice by improving the technology through which advisers can manage remote team members.
FinPal has announced the release of version 2.0 of its financial planning software. Leveraging the capabilities of Dynamics 365, FinPal uses enhanced data management techniques to significantly improve the efficiency with which advisers can deliver advice and service their clients.

Investfit and FinPal aim to streamline the advice process by delivering real-time advice modelling to an adviser’s financial planning software system.
Over the last few years, there has been an increasing effort to integrate financial planning and lending services to offer consumers a one-stop-shop. Unfortunately, the integration generally stops at the sign on the door. Because advisers and brokers use different, disconnected software systems, sharing of information is still very much a manual process, resulting in a disjointed client experience. The next release of FinPal’s software will include support for mortgage brokers.
Investfit has developed a tool that helps advisers present information in a way their clients are able to understand how much retirement income they give up in exchange for more stable short-term investment returns. The question for the client becomes “you could have $64,000 per year in retirement with 90% certainty* (top right of the chart), but you will likely experience some large negative investment returns on the way (eg a loss of 35% in one year), or you can have only $44,000 per year in retirement with the same 90% certainty* (bottom left of the chart) but experience a smoother ride, which would you prefer?”
