What is Financial Advice?

Financial advice is about getting an expert to use their knowledge and experience to build long-term financial plans, personalised for your circumstances, goals and desires.

No matter where you are in your working life, there are things you can do with your super that will make a real difference to your life after work. Some of these actions will be simple, taking only a few minutes. Some people may also find that they do a great job reaching their investment and retirement goals on their own.

But if you don’t have clear goals for your financial future or an idea of the best strategies to help you get there, expert advice can make a huge difference.

Financial advice is about getting an expert to use their knowledge and experience to build long-term financial plans, personalised for your circumstances, goals and desires. It’s a one-on-one commitment and encompasses not just investment strategies, but also insurance requirements, savings plans and tax strategies—all regularly evaluated and adapted to suit the changes you go through in life.

Understanding the types of advice on offer is also important. Some may want general advice, others may opt for comprehensive advice to get a full financial picture; and yet others may want specialist advice on a particular topic.

That’s why, as your super fund, we offer four different advice options—general advice over the phone, Retire Ready meetings tailored for those approaching retirement, personal advice over the phone and comprehensive advice.

Let us find you expert help you can rely on.
