Ways we helpHere are some of the areas we’re experienced in and ready to give you expert financial advice.
Financial advice & financial planning
This is the fun part - planning for the day you can hang up the boots and enjoy a comfortable lifestyle doing the things you love with the people you love. You’ve worked hard throughout your life and deserve to reap the rewards during your retirement. Your retirement advice will be unique to you. Perhaps you’d like to ease into retirement and supplement your reduced wage with a regular income payment . Or maybe you plan to retire full-time and could benefit from converting your super to an income stream paying you regular income.
Beneath the surface of all retirement planning is a lot of complex regulation and rules, often with the consequence of penalties and taxes if you get it wrong. My Financial Design specialises in financial advice in the lead up to retirement and then during retirement itself. We’re here to guide you through these complexities and make sure you’ve got clarity and confidence in your retirement years ahead.
Wealth creation & investment advice
Getting the right mix of investments all working together to align with your financial design is key. At My Financial Design we aren’t in the business of short-term selling/buying and trying to time the market. Instead, we take a long-term strategic approach knowing that it’s time in the market over multiple market cycles that builds long-term wealth. Whether its shares, managed funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), property, bonds, fixed interest, cash or something else - your investment portfolio is designed to increase your personal wealth.
Managing your own portfolio can lead to missed opportunities and bad decisions based on following the crowd. We provide professional investment advice that fits in with your financial roadmap.
Pretty much every working Australian has a super account - but is your super optimised and working hard for you? It can be something we put in the too hard basket in amongst the busyness of life. Did you know that superannuation is usually the most tax-effective method of investing in Australia? Simply relying on what your employer puts into your super may not be enough to build a large enough nest-egg.
Don’t wait until retirement to get your super sorted, use the years you’re still working to build and make the most of this chunk of money (sometimes the second largest asset you have outside your home).
Wealth protection & insurance advice
Have you noticed life doesn’t always go to plan? Sometimes we can focus on growing our wealth but neglect to protect it. While not nice to think about, having coverage in place for the event of death, disability, accident and illness is critical to form a well-rounded protection plan. When it comes to these insurances you don’t want junk policies, dealing with someone who is here today and gone tomorrow.
My Financial Design has access to a wide range of insurers so that we can select the right level and quality of coverage tailored to your needs and health circumstances.
