Grow My Wealth
Developing a long-term investment plan can help you build wealth to achieve your goals and dreams, like owning a new car, taking a holiday, buying your first home and enjoying a comfortable retirement. We can help you grow your money to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
Budgeting and saving
Start by knowing where your money goes. Draw up a detailed budget plan, and divide your expenditure into essentials and extras. You can access some useful budget planning and financial health check tools at the Federal Government’s ‘Understanding Money’ website.
Investing your money can be easier than you might think, especially with our help to guide you through the investment maze. Visit the Federal Government’s ‘Understanding Money’ website for an overview of investment basics.
While irresponsible use of credit cards and personal loans can leave you with mounting repayments, some types of debt can actually help you create wealth. An example of this is gearing, which involves borrowing funds for investments in shares and property. Gearing can improve your cash flow and generate wealth. But it does have inherent risks and only works when the after-tax capital growth and income return exceed the after-tax cost of borrowing.
Case study – Jarrod pays off his mortgage sooner
Jarrod has a $320,000 mortgage with an interest rate of 9.74 per cent per annum and is making monthly repayments of $2,840. By sticking to monthly payments it will take him around 32 years to pay off his mortgage, for a total cost of more than $1,080,000. But by switching to fortnightly repayments instead, Jarrod can save ten years and over $300,000. , The Example is illustrative only and is not an estimate of the investment returns you will receive or fees and costs you will incur.
We believe with the right knowledge and support, anyone can achieve financial independence.
Protect My Future
Be prepared for life’s emergencies Imagine what your family’s life would be like if you or your partner died or became seriously ill and couldn’t work. Would you be able to survive financially? Can you pay the mortgage and bring up your kids? Insurance can provide the money that you or your family need in critical times. It may not take away the pain of losing a job or a loved one, but it will ease the added pain of financial problems We can help you choose the most appropriate package of cover, taking into account your expenses, debts and personal goals.
Income protection insurance
If you’re unable to work due to sickness or injury, income insurance can provide a regular stream of funds totalling up to 75 per cent of your ordinary income. And the premiums are tax deductible.
A lump sum is paid to your nominated beneficiaries in the event of your death. The payment may help your family and dependants cope with the financial burden left by your tragic loss.
Trauma recovery insurance
A lump sum is provided if you suffer one of an extensive list of trauma events including cancer, heart attack and stroke.
Total and permanent disability (TPD) insurance
In the unfortunate event you become totally and permanently disabled, TPD insurance pays a lump sum to help you maintain your quality of life.
Business expenses insurance
If you own a business and sickness or injury stops you earning an income, business expenses insurance provides a basic payment to help with day-to-day business costs.
Key person and business succession insurance
Business owners can help protect their business against death, disability or serious medical trauma happening to a key person or co-owner by taking out an appropriate package of life, TPD and trauma recovery insurance.
Case study – Bill’s insurance package
Bill just bought a new car for $30,000. He knew about the importance of car insurance, and did not drive away from the car yard before it was insured. Bill also recently purchased his first home for $500,000. After saving years for his deposit, there was no way he was going to leave it uninsured. Bill earns $60,000 per year and, like most people, he expects to be working until age 65. What he doesn’t realise is that his income over the rest of his working life will amount to around $2.4 million dollars after tax. But he hasn’t yet insured his income. And unlike the premiums for house and car insurance, the premium for Bill’s income insurance will be tax deductible. The Example is illustrative only and is not an estimate of the investment returns you will receive or fees and costs you will incur.
We aim to help people bridge the gap between where they are now, and where they ideally would like to be.
