Retirement Planning & Advice

Regardless of what you envision for your retirement, preparation is the key to success. There's no such thing as too early to start.

Everyone has a different picture of their ideal retirement. Maybe you see a future as a grey nomad, perhaps you have your eye on a coastal property and fishing boat, or maybe you imagine long brunches and golf trips with friends.

Bridging the gap between where you are now and where you’d like to be is the key to your retirement success.  This will look different for many different clients, depending on your financial situation when you start your plan, but no matter the situation we aim to ensure you spend your well-earned retirement years doing what you love!

  • If you have significant assets or investments and need advice on structuring them for retirement, downsizing or setting up estate planning, our wealth advisors specialise in holistic strategies centred on growth and protection.
  • If you are not sure if your retirement savings will be sufficient or need to set goals for your retirement, our retirement advisors help you structure your finances now to reach your future lifestyle goals.

The Foundations of Your Retirement Plan

Retirement planning starts with the core building blocks such as superannuation, investing, budgeting and cash flow. Read on for more information on how these foundational elements factor into your holistic financial roadmap to retirement. Of course, many people will require additional strategies depending on their retirement stage, financial and wealth situation, family plans and existing investments. As our retirement planning is tailored to be a perfect fit for each client, we are able to ensure each element is considered and taken care of in your plan.

  • Superannuation

There are several strategies your financial advisor might call on to maximise your super for retirement. Some of these might include:

  • Finding the optimum amount or frequency with which you contribute to your superannuation fund both pre-and post-tax to create as much benefit as possible by growing your super while reducing your tax
  • Expertise in salary sacrificing to save on your tax bill
  • Evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of accessing your super in a lump sum
  • Sharing the benefits of contributing to your spouse’s superannuation fund
  • Merging numerous superannuation accounts into one fund 
  • Setting up an SMSF or advising on the investments, assets and administration of your SMSF
  • Budgeting & Cash flow

Budgeting and cash flow are crucial for your retirement plan, particularly in two key areas: 

  1. Preparing for retirement by having a clear understanding of how much cash you will need to sustain your lifestyle, and;
  2. Ensuring you achieve your retirement goals by establishing excellent budgeting and cash-flow systems now. 

When budgeting, you must include all of your sources of income as well as all of your outgoing expenses. It is critical that you are realistic, particularly when estimating your future monthly budget in retirement. A good budget will assist you in understanding where your expenses will be and determining exactly how much income you will need to draw from your superannuation or other sources to support your lifestyle. 

Our retirement planning advisors understand exactly how to use the right strategies and ‘rules’ for your situation to maximise your retirement finances and ensure your lifestyle will be funded for as long as you need. We save you the stress and complexity by calculating your future financial needs and lifestyle goals and then creating a strategy today that will ensure you meet those goals.
