Financial Planning

Your financial road map

Everyone has different places that they want to go in life – to own a home, invest for retirement, send the kids to university or simply feel secure. A financial plan, prepared by a qualified Financial Planner, is a road map that gives you clear directions to help you achieve your goals.

  Keeping you on course when things change.

Your financial plan helps ensure that your finances remain aligned to your goals when changes occur.

For example:

  • Legislative changes – a Financial Planner can explain how changes made to legislation could affect your finances and how you can maximise your opportunities.
  • Personal changes – everything from pay-rises to windfalls or redundancy; your Financial Planner can show you strategies to help you optimise your finances at every stage.
  What can my Financial Planner do for me?

What stage are you at right now? Building your wealth? Nearing retirement? Starting a new business? Getting ready to retire? Whatever stage you're at, getting financial advice from a qualified Financial Planner could benefit you in many ways - check the situations below to see how.

  • Nearing retirement - suggest strategies for making the most of your Superannuation.
  • Retirement is still a long way off - show you how to potentially increase your eventual retirement payout without sacrificing your lifestyle now. 
  • Where's my Super? track down your Superannuation from different jobs and consolidate it.
  • Recently been made redundant - offer advice on how to invest any redundancy payment or how to cope financially while you find a new job.
  • I've become my own boss - discuss strategies to protect your income and maximise your Superannuation.
  • I want to build my wealth - show you how to grow your wealth through innovative strategies like margin lending.
  • I've just received a surprise windfall - suggest ways to invest any surplus funds for maximum gain.
  • I want to look at estate planning - assess your assets and opportunities 
  What will happen when I meet my Financial Planner?

Your first meeting with your Financial Planner is complimentary, and there's no obligation or pressure to proceed. During this meeting, your Financial Planner will ask you questions to get an understanding of your goals, attitude to risk and financial circumstances.

If you decide to go ahead with a financial plan, the consultation process will involve the following:

  • Collect
Your Financial Planner will ask you to provide details (such as your income, assets, liabilities, investments and other financial details) so they can get an accurate picture of your finances.
  • Recommend
Recommend strategies to help you achieve your goals, then develop and present you with their recommendations in writing (called a Statement of Advice).
  • Discuss
Your Financial Planner will then seek your approval for the strategies they have recommended and make any adjustments you require.
  • Implement
Once you accept your Financial Planner's recommendations, your financial plan will be put into action.
  • Review
Your Financial Planner will offer to regularly review your plan to ensure it remains aligned to your goals and circumstances when things change.
  • Remember you're always in control
You can stop, change or continue with your plan at any stage in the process.
