Solve Your Money Issues

Investment Management

Want to get started with the share market but don’t quite feel comfortable taking the first step?

Maybe you’ve already dipped your toe in the water – but watching the market go up and down like a yoyo has you spooked… You’re not alone! A lot of our clients come to us with big plans for their investments – but little knowledge of how to succeed in the market. And that’s okay… It’s our area of expertise, not yours!

The last thing we want to do is let you loose in the market with no guidance – that’s a sure-fire way to fail! But what we can do is provide you with an investment strategy tailored to you that has the right risk to reward ratio based on your current financial situation. You’ll finally feel comfortable and confident in taking things forward.

There are so many options available to you when you want to get started, like managed funds, Australian or international shares, residential or commercial property and much more. You might not want to put together a portfolio alone, so the SmartMoney team is here to design a strategy that goes a long way to securing your financial future – and can be easily adjusted depending on your requirements.

Get Started With Investments

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds

If you want to put control of your super investments back in your own hands, you’ve come to the right place!

More and more Australians are choosing to do just that, opting out of government or private super schemes so they can go it alone. And we say, ‘bravo!’ Why shouldn’t you make your own decisions on where to invest?

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (or SMSFs for short) have become a popular option for our clients looking to keep a nest-egg for retirement – but it might not be right for everyone… It’s our job to help you assess if an SMSF is going to work for you – or if you might be better off going down a slightly different path.

Our team will work directly and diligently with you to make sure any decisions you make align with your current financial situation – as well as your future goals and objectives. Oh – and we’ll even help with all the boring legal stuff to help you report on your superannuation correctly. Just get in touch to find out more!

Property Investment

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Australians over the years, it’s that they LOVE owning their own home. And sometimes, they don’t just stop at one! Problem is, not everybody feels comfortable building a property portfolio and – even worse – they think that buying investment property is out of their reach.

In reality, it’s not – and it can be a wise financial decision for most people if handled in the most effective way. Whether it’s long-term capital growth, the ability to minimise income tax or simply putting more money in your pocket, there are plenty of reasons in favour of getting started on your own property journey.

With professional expertise in designing and managing substantial property portfolios, the team at SmartMoney is well positioned to help you invest directly or via a managed property fund. We’ll leverage the market and plan for your financial future. And whatever we do, it’ll be the right option for you and your family.

Personal Insurance

As we all know, life can change in an instant. And if you or your family is deprived of your income for an extended period of time, things can get pretty tough pretty quickly. But you can protect against financial loss with personal insurance – and secure your financial future in unforeseen circumstances. And we can help you do it!

Life Insurance
The last thing someone should have to go through is worrying about money while they’re grieving for someone close to them. As a family with dependents, life insurance is the best way to support your beneficiaries in their time of need and secure their financial future if the worst was to happen.

Total & Permanent Disability Insurance
If you’re permanently disabled and unable to work, chances are you’ll be forced to rely on government support. And if you need assistance with daily living, things might change significantly for your partner’s earning capability. With disability insurance, you and your family will have sufficient funds for a comfortable lifestyle.

Income Insurance
Household bills, mortgages, school fees and day-to-day living costs – they don’t reduce if you have to stop working as a result of sickness or injury. Scary, right? Well, income protection covers 75% of your monthly earnings so you can stop stressing about money and focus on getting back on your feet.

Trauma Insurance
With trauma insurance, you receive a lump sum in the event that you’re diagnosed with a serious illness such as cancer or a stroke. By putting the money towards medical fees, therapy costs, transport or general income, you can keep your head above water and protect your family’s financial security.

Retirement Solutions

Retirement shouldn’t be the time when you stop living a comfortable life. In fact, we say it should be the opposite! You’ve earned the right to finally enjoy yourself without working hours on end to keep the money coming in. The sad news is that 90% (seriously, 90%) of Australians retire without financial security and have to rely on other means.

That’s why it’s so important to plan for your retirement well in advance. Even if you plan on working for a few more decades, the sooner you start saving, the less you need to put aside on a regular basis. It’s a win-win… You’re giving yourself more time to save while also minimising your risk in the long-term!

At SmartMoney, we work with people across the country to put the right financial strategies in place that can secure a comfortable future. Regardless of your current age or financial situation, we’ll set up a medium to long-term plan that means you won’t have to change your lifestyle in your senior years.

Secure a Comfortable Future

Mortgage Broking & Advisory

Whether you’re a first-home buyer, refinancing an existing property, or borrowing to invest, you want your property journey to be as smooth as possible. Problem is, there’s an awful lot of information to take in and plenty of hurdles to overcome.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is essential for anyone who owns a property or share portfolio – the last thing you want is to lose control of your financial assets when you’ve worked so hard to build them! At SmartMoney, we have a team of professionals who design a plan for your estate that adheres to your wishes and protects your family.

Most Australians already have a will because it’s essential when it comes to protecting your assets. And without one, the courts can decide who benefits from your estate – especially controversial with blended families. That’s why we’re here to help with writing and creating your own legal will.

Power of Attorney
If you’re incapable of making your own legal and financial decisions, you need to have a Power of Attorney in place. Put simply, it gives someone you trust the ability to act on your behalf. We believe in making these plans while you’re still fit and well to avoid any issues – and we’re available to help whenever you need us.

Medical Directives
In the unfortunate event that you become so unwell or incapacitated that you can’t make independent decisions about your welfare, we can help you draft a medical directive – a way of ensuring that your care and accommodation choices are known even after your health deteriorates.

Trust Funds
Trust funds are commonly created to protect and manage assets when beneficiaries are underage. SmartMoney can work with you and your family to protect and preserve specified assets for your dependents – as well as creating a Testamentary Trust will to provide the maximum amount of flexibility when distributing your assets.
