For Retirees we provide advice and guidance in relation to the management and drawdown of their assets to meet their lifestyle goals in retirement.
Like all of our clients – retirees also need advice in relation to their investments, superannuation and pension, as well as retirement planning and integration of their personal super/pension assets with Centrelink.
Clients consistently tell us that they want advice and guidance in regard to:
Property – Should we look at down-sizing the family home? Should we keep the Investment property?
Lifestyle – budgeting, saving, help in setting retirement goals, funding family expenses / holidays. Helping your grandchildren/children
Protecting your wealth in retirement– Development of wealth preservation strategies
Arranging your retirement wealth and managing the conversion to a retirement income
“Build your Wealth, Protect your Wealth , Enjoy your Wealth”
We Understand the Importance of having ‘Structure and Discipline’
While we know different people have different requirements, we also know that having a disciplined, structured and monitored approach to managing your financial affairs pays big dividends.
Having a plan, setting guidelines and being accountable is what helps to achieve long term goals.
We implement a step-by-step approach to providing financial advice and in developing your wealth management plan.
Understanding You and Your Goals
We spend considerable time understanding ‘what is important to you’ and gathering necessary information about you – your current circumstances, family, business, work, finances, assets and liabilities, your retirement aspirations.
Assessment and Recommendations
We identify the issues that relate to you and document your goals – short term, medium term and long term. Issues are prioritised, then we investigate solutions, develop plan/s and produce a strategy- a full ‘financial plan’.
We provide a concise outline of your issues (determined from our initial meetings) and present advice covering issues such as asset management, portfolio construction, asset protection, growth and distribution. Typically this advice will be a combination of our input and recommendations together with advice from other professionals such as your accountant and solicitor.
The advice provides a solid core of your strategy for the future. You receive detailed projections (cash flow and asset projections) to help you make informed ‘trade-offs’ on decisions which affect your ability to achieve your goals.
Peace of mind is all about having the confidence that you are on track to achieving your lifestyle goals.
We arrange for recommendations to be implemented. This involves co-ordinating the services of necessary professionals (as agreed by you). This is where we also commit to an agreed action plan and articulate to you an agreed level of on-going service.
Ongoing Monitoring and Review
We revisit your plan on an annual basis (or more regularly where required) in a formal review. We talk about new goals or revised goals and discuss your portfolio. We discuss our proposed revisions to your strategy and agree and document future action plans. Of course while we regularly monitor and provide advice regarding the composition of your portfolio – no changes will be made without prior discussion with you and your written approval to any proposed portfolio modifications.
