The principle of wealth creation is simple — minimising debt and investing your surplus money into assets like property and shares. Simple, sure, but not always easy. From tax considerations to the vagaries of the stock market, investing your hard earned cash is something that needs a professional hand on the rudder.
- Put your surplus money to work
- Minimise debt and make smart investments
- Get a tailored wealth creation strategy
As part of our wealth creation services we look to reduce your debt and create better cash flow for your household. This could include consolidating debts or minimising interest on your loans and credit cards.
We’ll look at augmenting your superannuation and minimising tax payments through voluntary contributions. We also offer specialist SMSF services including setting up and managing your fund and providing tailored advice on maximising your super.
Tax may be a dirty word to lots of people but we love it! And one of the main things we love about it is finding ways to make tax work for our clients. We’ll help implement advanced tax strategies that maximise your savings and ensure none of your hard earned cash is being unnecessarily lost to tax.
Another major factor of wealth creation is putting together a strong investment portfolio. We’ll help you invest your excess wealth into safe, profitable avenues including shares and property investment.
Whether you’re gunning for an early retirement or want to ensure you’ve got enough money to fund your dream retirement lifestyle, we can help you reach your retirement goals. It doesn’t matter if you’re decades from retirement or ready to start planning your retirement in earnest, we can put in place a financial strategy that gives you the financial freedom to enjoy your retirement the way you want to.
- Retire exactly when you want to
- Achieve the retirement lifestyle you want
- Maximise your superannuation
It probably won’t surprise you to hear that it’s never too early to start planning for retirement. At the moment you might be settled into your career, have a mortgage and a couple of kids and you’ve got a bit of cash left over for discretionary purchases. This is the perfect time to start thinking about retirement. By minimising debt and adding to your super, along with a range of other strategies, you can start to get your ducks in a row for retirement.
If you’re getting close to retirement our financial planning will focus on ways to maximise your superannuation and provide good cash flow for your retirement, along with tax and debt reduction strategies. We also help you make provisions for larger purchases and unexpected expenses, working a comfortable buffer into your retirement finances.
With no way of really knowing how long your retirement will last it’s crucial to have a plan in place that maximises your cash, prepares you for unexpected expenses and allows you to live the lifestyle you want. We’ll work with you to make your retirement as carefree and relaxing as you want it to be.
Some of the biggest moments in our lives like weddings, buying property and retirement are also some of the biggest financial drains. Meanwhile unplanned life events like losing a job, natural disasters, family deaths and funerals also bring associated financial difficulties. Although we may prefer not to think about these things, having a financial plan in place with provisions for those big life events will help take the monetary sting out of the bad times and enhance enjoyment of the good times.
- Plan for happy life events like family weddings and retirement
- Keep a financial buffer against hard times
- Put in place strategies to protect your cash flow
Things may be great right now, but what’s your backup plan if something unexpected happens? Maybe you’ll lose your job or experience an unforeseen hardship. The last thing you want when times are tough is financial stress, yet this is often the case for people who don’t factor a savings buffer into their financial plan. We’ll help you set and achieve a realistic savings goal to avoid financial hardship during difficult times in your life.
If you’ve got kids you’re probably looking forward to all those big life moments like sending them off to uni or planning their weddings. If you want to help them out financially it’s worthwhile making provisions for that now, creating a savings pot that won’t interrupt your cash flow when the time comes.
It can be tempting to spend your surplus money on enjoying life right now — and don’t get us wrong, we’re all for living in the moment! — but putting aside a set amount for those big life events is an easy way to get peace of mind and make sure that when those celebrations happen you’ve got a safety net to keep you comfortable.
From life insurance to savings and everything in between, we can help you prepare for all life throws at you. Whatever events you’re planning for whether it’s buying your first house, paying for a dream wedding or funding your retirement we can help you mark all those big occasions with financial freedom.
Once you’re at a stage in your life where you have a decent amount of money left over after covering your weekly and monthly expenses it’s time to start making strategic investments that grow your wealth. Cash in the bank isn’t doing much for you, but expertly invested funds can grow your wealth exponentially.
