How I can help you
When planning for retirement, or already living it, there are many variables to take into consideration, such as insurances, types of investments to make and risks associated with investing, how to make your income last for as long as you are alive, are you receiving your actual Age Pension entitlement and how to improve it, how to organise your estate to leave it to your chosen beneficiaries and not “others” and of course how to minimise the tax that eventually your beneficiaries might need to pay.
Lots to consider, isn’t it?

Sadly, the vast majority of older people go into aged care with no plan and usually completely unprepared.
This is often due to the fact that they might have a fall or other medical trauma and have undergone an Aged Care Assessment, often in a hospital and they are not allowed to return home due to health issues and inability to continue living independently.
What a wonderful life ahead of us. We live longer. We stay active, we have good diet supplemented with healthy vitamins. Medicine is advancing which in turn keeps us living even longer. This is a great news for all of us. However, the problem is that our money might not be able to keep up with our lifestyle and our longevity.
Estate Planning is putting in place a plan that takes into consideration wishes of the testator in order to provide the most efficient and effective strategy to pass the estate assets to chosen beneficiaries.
For some people, a solicitor produced standard will is what they need to help ensure their estate is managed according to their wishes.
Ethical investing or Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) is a practice of selecting investments based on ethical, moral, socially conscious and sustainable investing.
SRI typically avoids investing in companies involved in gambling, alcohol, smoking or firearms. Some will avoid investing into companies with negative impact on environment as well.
