Why Mutual Plans?

Document Review

Every document is quality-reviewed — we have strict procedures in place to ensure all documents delivered to clients are of the highest industry standards.

Secure Portal

Requests managed via our secure portal — There, you can submit requests and monitor progress (although we’re always on the end of the phone too). This way, communication is clear and centralised. So you’ll always know where your work stands, when you can expect it, if you need to provide additional information — and never feel in the dark.

Data Protection

Data protection prioritised — With cyber and security risks on the rise, we take additional measures to protect your client’s data. This includes using MFA on all our email and cloud files accounts; securing data in Sharepoint with multiple layers of protection—and giving only your assigned paraplanner and the paraplanner peer-reviewing their work access to your data.

No Minimum

No minimum request requirements — You only pay for the paraplanning services you need, when you need them.

Compliance Expertise

Proven compliance expertise — None of our documents have failed at audit since Mutual Plans launched in 2016, and we consistently attain top rankings in auditing from PwC.

Dedicated Paraplanner

You will be assigned a dedicated paraplanner to your business — based on your needs/niche/location. That being said, as a larger team, we also have back-up so you’ll never find that work that doesn't get completed when “your” paraplanner is unexpectedly unavailable, off sick or on leave.

Australia Based

Australia-based — This means we understand Australian rules and regulations and stay abreast of changes. We also appreciate time is often of the essence for advisers, and being 100% onshore & on a similar time-zone to clients allows us to react faster to changes and requests.
