Making sure you are in a position to enjoy life in retirement, as well as to be comfortable, safe and secure in the later period of life, takes a lot of financial planning. This planning occurs in four phases, and it’s important you have experts you can trust to guide you through this period. The phases are:
This is where you build up your retirement assets to support your after-work years.
You start to plan for more specific goals that cater for your particular retirement needs based on your progress to date.
After you retire, you enjoy the fruits of your labour, focusing on some travel, family, health and managing your financial resources.
As the years pass by you may consider scaling down or look to residential care to help with daily chores. Estate planning becomes a bigger priority to you.

It’s never too early to plan for your retirement
While the thought of ceasing full time employment might seem an eternity away, making the most of your investment dollars while you are working will help ensure your future lifestyle is the one you have always looked forward to.
Investing in superannuation is an investment for your retirement future that enables you to enjoy the retirement lifestyle you desire and have earned. This is the time to plan your approach to ensuring your super will last a lifetime.
The laws around superannuation can be complex but there are opportunities to take advantage of Government initiatives and your personal circumstances if you receive the appropriate advice.
We can put in place an approach to meet your needs and maximise your wealth in retirement.
Remember – it is important to regularly review progress towards your target.
Waiting to start your retirement savings can cost you in the long term. If you are over age 30 we strongly suggest that you get advice on planning for the retirement lifestyle you always wanted.
As retirement approaches, it is important to get a clear picture of your financial position. Here we do a complete review of your retirement savings progress and re-visit your needs and goals to give you a better indication of the possible income during your retirement years.

We take into account your plans for the future – both short and long term – and also any unexpected costs that might pop up. That way you can rest assured that your financial plan can keep up with your new found freedom!
As you get older you start to think of winding down. You might scale down your home or choose to move to residential care. We can discuss the implications in lifestyle and the costs involved. We can advise on a range of approaches here.
In some cases we refer you to other specialist advisers as this area can be complicated with a range of fees and charges involved. Some of these charges are negotiable.
Everyone wants to pass on their estate to those they choose and in the way they choose. Here we discuss different approaches with you in simple terms you can understand. To implement your wishes we suggest legal advice from a practitioner skilled in this area.
