Friday Five – Five services offered by Quantum

Quantum Paraplanning and Support understands that every business is unique and requires a tailored approach to their work and difference services.

In this week’s Friday Five we outline five services offered by Quantum Paraplanning and Support.


Quantum has a dedicated team of paraplanners who will complete a compliant advice document ranging from Record of Advice (RoA) through to complex Self-Managed Super Fund advice with gearing.


We understand that advisers would rather speak with their clients than sit behind a computer and complete insurance quotes or Wealthsolvers. Quantum can assist by completing these for you and upon completion discuss your strategy and rationale with you.

CSO / Admin support  

Finding staff or the time to complete admin tasks such as review appointment preparation, phoning product providers, uploading documents to xplan can be challenging.  Quantum has a dedicated CSO team that can take complete these tasks enabling the adviser to continue to see clients in the knowledge that the admin is not building up on their desk.

Loan Processing and Para-Broking  

As advisers develop their service offering to cater for their clients’ needs, so does Quantum.  We have created a team of Loan Processors and Para-Brokers to provide further assistance to our advisers and welcoming new brokers to Quantum.

Friday Five – Onshore vs Offshore Paraplanning

Five reasons why using Onshore Paraplanning compared to Offshore Paraplanning may benefit your business.

Quantum Paraplanning and Support is proudly 100% onshore here in Australia. 

We do understand the decision to use onshore paraplanning versus overseas paraplanning depends on various factors and considerations such as cost and quality.  

Here are five reasons why you might prefer onshore paraplanning.

Communication and Collaboration

Working with an onshore paraplanner allows for easier communication and collaboration. You can interact in real-time, have face-to-face or virtual meetings, and discuss complex financial matters more effectively. This can lead to better understanding, faster turnaround times, and a smoother working relationship.

Knowledge of Local Regulations

Onshore paraplanners typically have a better understanding of local regulations and compliance requirements, for example they are familiar with the specific laws, tax codes, and financial regulations in Australia. This knowledge ensures that the Statements of Advice provided are compliant and tailored to your clients specific needs.

Cultural and Market Understanding

Paraplanners based in Australia will have a better grasp of the local culture and market dynamics, they are more attuned to the needs and preferences of your target clients.  This understanding can lead to more relevant and effective Statements of Advice that align with your clients’ expectations and goals.

Data Security and Confidentiality

The information you handle, data security and confidentiality may be critical considerations.  By using an onshore paraplanner, you can potentially mitigate some risks associated with data breaches, privacy laws, and regulatory compliance, as they are subject to Australian data protection regulations.

Reputation and Trust

Financial Planners may have more confidence and trust in the Statement of Advice as they know that this is constructed locally.  This is supporting local talent and the expertise can positively influence your reputation and business relationships.

That being said, offshore paraplanning also has its advantages, such as potentially lower costs.  Ultimately, the decision should be based on your specific needs, budget, risk tolerance, and the importance placed on local knowledge and communication from your business.

Para-Broking – What is it and how can it help your business?

Paraplanning is a well known role within the Financial Services industry for the technical expertise it brings to Financial Advisers, but what is Para-Broking and how could it benefit you and your business?

A Para-Broker use their technical expertise in Mortgages and Lending and take the Fact Find, file note and supporting information from the Broker and discuss the scenario with multiple lenders to discover the most suitable outcome for the client based on their goals and objectives.

How could this benefit you and your business?

Quantum understands that Brokers prefer to spend their time seeing clients and networking. We have designed a service that aims to maximise a Broker’s time for these pursuits.

Our team of CSOs will integrate into the Broker’s business, with their own email address, ensuring that after the initial meeting and File Note is written by the Broker, our CSOs can engage with the clients to collect all relevant documents. 

Once all documents have been received, our Para-Brokers will discuss the scenario with multiple lenders to find the most suitable product and commence the credit analysis, serviceability assessments, pricing, loan comparisons and product and policy research. 

After consultation with the Broker to gain approval for the deal, our loan processing team then enter the deal into Applyonline, produce the compliance documents and track it through to settlement. During this time, our CSO team will keep the Broker and client up to date with the progress of their loan.

Could this help you?

Whether you are a single-practice Broker or a larger firm with support staff, utilising a Para-Broker could assist in freeing up your time so you can see more clients, build your business or finish at 5pm!!
