Financial Planning

Financial Services

A financial plan is the best way to make sure your finances meet your immediate and future needs.

A financial plan outlines your goals and how you will financially achieve them. It can include:

  • An analysis of your financial situation covering your income, debts/loans, spending habits and level of current savings.
  • Review your wealth protection needs and ensure you are adequately covered.
  • Tax-effective wealth creation strategies using investment vehicles, tailored to your individual financial needs.
  • Retirement planning strategies to maximise your superannuation and ensure you save enough for a comfortable retirement.

Retirement planning advice

Whether you are retired, close to retirement or it’s a fair way away, retirement planning is essential for all Australians.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I know how much money I need to live a comfortable retirement?
  • Do I know the best way to fund my retirement?
  • Is retirement too far off to start worrying now?
  • What is salary sacrifice?
  • When can I access my super?
  • What are my options when I retire?
  • Will I pay tax on my super if I take a lump sum?
  • What are the different types of income streams I can access in retirement?
  • I’ve already retired and I’m just living off what I’ve managed to save.  Will this money run out or can I change my strategy even now?

If you don’t know the answers to these are other questions then you could well be on your way to a financially difficult retirement (or you may already be there!). Your future doesn’t have to sound so gloomy if you take action now.
