What we do next is all the research, modelling and grunt work.  We’re not here to sell product, we’re here to help you succeed.  So, we’ll be looking at all the things you can do to improve your outcomes. After we've done all the hard yakka, we’ll sit down with you and talk about the ‘to do’ things that can help you reach your life goals, the things that will really work for you.  We know that you’ll probably be busy, so we’ll do most of the work to put your plans into practice.

Life is no fun if you’re not ticking things off your bucket list.  We’ll set up regular check points to track how things are going and help with any changes that might be needed. 

Financial planning isn’t just about your numbers, it’s about your life.

In today’s world, it’s crucial to protect your assets for your future. Claringbold can advise you on insurance solutions to fit your lifestyle so that you can stay busy living life without the worry. Life is unpredictable, so it’s important that you have an action plan in place to protect your financial wealth in case of an extraordinary event such as death, disablement, serious illness or injury.

Additional insurance protection is an important part of the financial planning procedure, as it provides crucial financial safety for you and your family. Simply put, financial protection insurance is there to offer you safety against the financial implications such as disablement, death, injury or serious illness.

With a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF), you have the control over what you are investing in and when. Our team can assist with the set up and ongoing management of these accounts so you are able to consistently see the growth results of your investments without the hassle of the administrative maintenance. Our advisers are here to provide expert advice on investment recommendations as well as guidance on regulatory requirements that accompany this type of fund.


SMSF Common Mistakes

Establishing a self-managed super fund has become very popular over recent years, and involves you managing your own fund. You are a Trustee of the fund and are responsible for the ongoing management of your fund, including:

  • documenting the fund’s investment strategy
  • making and managing the fund’s investments underlying to that investment strategy
  • administering the fund, including day to day activities of the fund and the lodging of tax returns for the fund.

Many people establish self-managed super funds to gain access to a broader range of investment options not available in other superannuation funds, including shares, collectables and certain direct property investments. It’s important to understand that self-managed super funds can be a very complex area. For more information, please contact us.
