  • Why should I pay a financial advisor? Why can't do it myself?
    There are indeed many great tools out there that can help you handle your insurance, investment, and superannuation yourself. Many areas might have their own separate isolated answers, but how do we connect all the pieces of your financial life together to provide options and perspectives on each of those decisions? There may be other issues in Taxes, cash flow, estate planning, and so much more, not to mention, more importantly, priority setting and having a clear vision of the future… There is a lot to know and to keep organised and on track. And it does take a lot of time and effort, and the cost of making a mistake is high. What we’ve also found is that many people have a tough time implementing their plan consistently. Therefore, we are here to listen, understand, advise, and implement so you can have less stress and more control in life!
  • What is a CFP® - certified financial planner?
    Most people think all financial advisors are the same, but this isn’t true. CFP® certification is the most renowned designation to financial advisors worldwide which represents the highest level of competency, ethics, and professionalism globally. Only a small percentage of advisers who have fulfilled the certification and annual renewal requirements of education, experience, and compliance can display the CFP® certification trademarks.
