Financial Mappers: Getting Started Guide

Introduction

 

You have been invited to join a Financial Mappers Pro platform by FinancialStrategy.com.au.

 

The aim is for you to work independently with Financial Mappers. 

 

After you have received your invitation to join the Financial Strategy platform, you will need to register your email and provide a password.  Later you can choose to activate the two-factor authorization, in which case you will be asked to enter a 6-digit code which will be emailed to you.  (This extra layer of security is optional).

Once you have your account, all the plans you create are private.  All your plans are restricted to your account unless you choose to share a plan with an adviser from Financial Strategy.  This would only occur if you have decided to seek financial advice from Financial Strategy.  Providing them with you plan will help them optimize that plan for you.  Alternatively, you may ask them to create a completely new plan.  Your adviser can then share the plan they have created so you can collaborate. 

 

This guide is intended to get you started with using Financial Mappers.  At the end, you will be shown how to share your plan or receive a copy of a plan from your adviser.
