I am 34, having completed B.Comm (Econ & Fin), Grad Dip in Applied Finance and Investment with Kaplan (formerly Securities Institute when I did it) and currently enrolled in subject 2 of the Diploma in Financial Planning with Pinnacle and am looking to move into a role as an independent financial planner (i.e. starting up my own business upon completion of the Diploma in Financial Planning. I have been working in corporate & institutional lending and securitisation for my work career so far I am a little unsure about going out on my own as an independent financial planner, as I am not able to see how I would obtain clients (i.e. no referral source) as I am essentially just starting as a Financial Planner. Any help or links to websites would be great?
