Financial advice can make a big difference at every stage of life.
A financial planner can help you with different investment strategies for different circumstances, such as:
- Managing your investments tax-effectively
- Saving for a home
- Planning for the costs of marriage and the benefits of combined income and savings
- Making your income go further by investing wisely
- Structuring your assets effectively if you are self-employed
- Planning for a family and the loss of a regular salary whilst on maternity leave
- Helping you make the most of your superannuation opportunities
- Planning your finances following a redundancy or when changing jobs
- Making the most of a maturing term deposit or a financial windfall, such as an inheritance
- Maximising your eligibility for Centrelink benefits
- Planning the retirement lifestyle you want
- Consider having part of your salary regularly deducted from your savings account and transferred to investments with a higher rate of return
- Invest for the medium to longer term which will help smooth out the short term volatility of some investments
- Growth investments such as property and shares, although higher risk, generally offer a higher return over the longer term than lower risk investments such as cash and fixed interest
- Avoid investments that sound too good to be true, as this is often the case
- Consider investments that are more tax effective such as Australian shares
- Contribute more to super as this is one of the most tax effective investment structures available
- Diversification helps to reduce risk by investing across a range of asset classes
