Financial planning advice to guide you through your life stages. Financial advice for when you are looking to buy your first home, start a family or looking to retire. This blog aims to show the relevance of Superannuation, insurance and investment for everyday families.


Insurance, a necessary evil

Lets face it, no one likes paying for insurance.

When it comes to insuring our car and homes, we all see it as something that despite hoping we never have to make a claim, see it as something we must have to protect our assets, in fact if a friend ours didn't have it, we would howl them down as being irresponsible.

However when it comes to protecting our most important assets, ourselves, far too many Australians do not have adequate insurance if any at all.

Superannuation is real money!

Superannuation your income replacement...

Superannuation is very misunderstood and often neglected part of our wealth, people don’t pay much attention to their Superannuation until they approach retirement and don’t view it as part of their overall assets.

A recent study indicated that 2/3’s of Australian’s could not accurately state how much money they had in super, about half did not know the name of all the funds in which they had super invested and more than half also had money invested in more than 1 fund without a strategic reason and only about 10% could give an accurate description of what underlying assets in which they were invested.
