Professionals & Cashflow
Many Professionals and Tradies are familiar with years of study, either at University or College, and how they managed to live on very little cash. Eventually, things fall into place with a job and money. The pennies flow more freely, and money can all too quickly – slip through the fingers.
Business & Farm Succession
For many business people, their business is their primary nest egg, or superannuation. In offering you access to a “one-stop-shop” where financial and business advice is linked, we are able to provide comprehensive and confidential expert advice to transition your business through its life cycle.
Retirement & Pension
Retirement is something many of us look forward to. The most common question is, do I have enough capital to support a comfortable retirement?
This question can only be answered with appropriate investigation and planning of your particular circumstances.
Superannuation SMSF & Divorce
Many people have superannuation with their employer, industry or retail provider. This is one form of superannuation, and may be well suited for those not inclined or confident to manage and invest their own superannuation.
Some people, on the other hand, have the skills and knowledge, to manage and operate, their superannuation within a self-managed superannuation fund, and obtain guidance and advice from suitably qualified professionals.

It is easy to view the stories of market speculation that have dominated the news recently as cautionary tales for individual investors.
“el hombre perezoso hace el doble de trabajo.” You might say this Spanish proverb is about the discouragement of a certain behaviour. In almost every facet of life we are encouraged to give our best and work our hardest.
You are out walking with your dog near a railway track. Behind you, there is a rumbling noise. Thundering down the track is a trolley, looking up ahead you can see the trolley is headed for a bridge with five workers on it.
Ask a farmer about average rainfall figures and he is likely to look at you sceptically. Knowing how actual rainfall varies from year to year, farmers will carefully manage their crops and irrigation. It is a lesson many investors could learn as well.
In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis a shift occurred in how some older people lived their lives across the USA. For the most part it wasn’t a choice. It was forced.
