Financial Strategies for Growing and
Protecting Wealth for your Peace of Mind.
Save tax and maximise your potential returns.
For many working Australians, superannuation can be an effective way to secure their future financial lifestyle. It’s important to regularly review your superannuation fund and your level of contributions to ensure you are on track to help you reach your retirement objectives. The more extensive your goals, the more super you are likely to need. So it’s important to know how to take advantage of the chance to optimise your future lifestyle.
It is never too late to take control of your super. As the rules can be complex, it is important to get professional financial advice to ensure you make the most of your superannuation opportunity.

Protect your loved ones, your lifestyle and your greatest financial asset, your ability to generate an income.
While many people insure their home, car and possessions, it is even more important to make sure your family and lifestyle are protected from financial misfortune. Without a regular income, it can be a challenge just paying for everyday household expenses like groceries and power bills, while ongoing mortgage repayments or school fees can quickly eat away any savings. Worse still, if you’re self-employed and can’t work because you’re ill or disabled, you could be faced with the added pressure of the business bills continuing.
The good news is that we can use risk insurance to structure a total financial protection package for you to protect against loss of income, disablement, serious illness and death.
While car and home insurance are relatively straightforward, personal risk cover can be complex, with many different options and levels of cover to choose from. We can help you decide which cover is right for you and what issues you need to consider.

Make smart decisions to successfully grow your wealth.
Investing can build enough wealth to provide financial security and a comfortable lifestyle, but determining the best personal approach can be complex. There are so many options to choose from, it is important that you have the right professional advice.
Your Financial Plan
It’s often said that you can’t meet you goals without a plan and your finances are no different. Formulating a financial plan with your financial adviser can provide you with direction and a disciplined approach.
What do you want to achieve and by when?
Many people find it easier to identify goals of up to five years’ time such as buying a bigger home, acquiring an investment property or saving for your children’s education. Long-term goals of more than five years may be less precise but should be reviewed regularly to respond to changing markets, government legislation and your own personal situation.
A Key Asset Group financial adviser can help build you a financial plan that suits your individual financial and life goals.
Please contact us via phone for an initial consultation to put you on the right path.
Start planning now and retire when you choose with the lifestyle you want.
Thanks to our high standard of living and medical advances, Australians are living longer than ever before. A male retiring at age 60 will likely spend around 22 years in retirement and a female 26 years*. While this is good news, being able to enjoy such a lengthy retirement may cost more than you think.
According to the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA), an individual seeking a comfortable lifestyle needs a yearly income of $40,297 (after tax) ^. That requires savings of $533,088 at retirement to provide this level of income for the next 20 years +.
When we draw up a plan, we conduct in-depth analysis to learn about you and understand your current situation and goals so we can present you with the most appropriate options to suit you in retirement.
We can discuss your ideal retirement lifestyle and when you’d like to stop working. We can also help you work out how much income you might need in retirement and gain an understanding of the types of investments and risks you are comfortable with.
Whether you are approaching retirement or still a few years away, it’s important that you understand all of the options available to suit you and your ideal retirement.
