Learn how your super can earn more

A financial planner has specialist knowledge. They’ll help you explore:

  • Goal setting
  • Ways to maximise your superannuation benefits 
  • Investment strategies
  • Your attitude to money and saving
  • And much, much more

Be prepared

Your planner will want to ensure they are giving you the right advice. That means they will need to know more about you and your current financial situation. Before your appointment, complete a ‘Needs Analysis Guide’ to give them a quick snapshot of your situation. Also remember to bring along any financial documents you have as they may be useful.

Dive into goal-setting and fact-finding

Your financial planner will chat with you about your needs so they can learn more about you and your finances. Their job is to get a full picture of your financial habits, to give you a summary of what it will take for you to achieve your goals.

Financial plan presentation

You'll be presented with advice and a full financial plan. The plan will detail your planner’s strategies and recommendations to help you achieve your goals. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss any questions you may have.

Time to take action

Once you’re happy with the proposed plan, your financial planner can help you put it into action and start making some changes to your financial situation.

Your financial guardians watch over you

Just because you've got your plan doesn't mean you're on your own. Instead, once you’ve put your financial plan into action, your financial planner will monitor and review it regularly. They want to make sure it keeps up with the changes in your lifestyle and circumstances.
