At Optimise we believe combining three important areas, our Strategic Advice, Implementation and Ongoing Support can help you achieve your greatest financial potential. We offer high level advice across Superannuation, Investments & Wealth Creation, Mortgages & Loans, Personal Insurance, Cash Management & Budgeting, Specialised Portfolios and Retirement.
Superannuation is now one of the most tax effective ways to build wealth for retirement. With our help, you can learn how to make it work harder for you. Our superannuation service combines a number of quality advice solutions. These will not only guide you through the intricacies of superannuation but also offer you product solutions to make managing your superannuation easy. To help you live the life you want in retirement, we can advise you on how much super you need to accumulate, how much you need to contribute and how to maximise the benefits available to you – including salary sacrifice, tax deductible contributions, government co-contribution strategies and much more.
Investments & Wealth Creation
Our investment service offers advice solutions to get you the right investments today, regardless of whether you want to create wealth or live off your investments. Our advice can help you develop wealth creation strategies tailored to your circumstances. Our guidance can include strategies on the types of investments you should make, the structure of your investments, and whether you should borrow to invest. Periodic reviews of your investments can ensure you are on track to reaching your goals and that your investments are working for you.
Debt, Mortgages & Loans
Getting the right mix of low interest rates and flexible loan options is the best way to manage debt, isn’t it? Or is it? Loan structuring is a key component of our debt management service, where clients have current debt or are looking to utilise debt to achieve their financial objectives. Our advice may help to release cash flow and facilitate wealth creation strategies.
Our strategic advice can take into account how your current debts and debt plans work in conjunction with your other wealth creation and wealth management needs. If you are investing, we can advise you on how to structure your loans to get the best lifestyle outcomes and tax outcomes. Our loan recommendations are based on your financial objectives, lifestyle needs and other important criteria including rates, flexibility, loan options, your wealth creation capability and value for money.
If creating wealth is like going on a journey, then not having a personal insurance plan is like not putting on your seatbelt before you leave! Our personal insurance service combines quality strategic advice to assess and manage the risks we all face – risks including death, disability, and loss of income through illness or injury and trauma events.
Our strategic advice and implementation can put the right plans in place to protect your loved ones and give you the confidence to live life without worry. As you progress through life and your financial standing improves, your personal insurance needs may change. Reviewing your personal insurance needs regularly will ensure you are getting the most value for money.
Cash Management and Budgeting
A key element to successful wealth management is to thoroughly understand your cash flow. Once you are able to successfully manage your cash flow, you can maximise your wealth creation with prudent tax planning and get more out of life! Our strategic advice can help you find ways to unlock cash flow to create wealth and find the best use for any surplus income you may have. We can help you with cash flow management tools that help identify and monitor your income and expenses, and then use that knowledge to use to get the most out of your money.
Investing your money as you are accumulating wealth requires a very different approach to investing your money when you need to generate income from your investments. Our specialised portfolios can help you grow your wealth or generate income in retirement.
The attitude towards retirement is changing, we recognise retiring from full-time work doesn‘t mean retiring from life! You may want to retire early, travel or buy your dream boat and sail the world. At Optimise we can help you understand the importance of planning early and help you on your journey to retirement sooner.
You may intend to work for some time and gradually ease into retirement through flexible work or reduced hours. Our transition to retirement program can give you the flexibility to keep working – on your terms – without sacrificing your current lifestyle.
Relying on your own savings can be a daunting proposition. Our advice solutions can put the right plans in place to prepare you for when you don’t have regular income and you need to make your savings last. We can also help you save tax as you move toward retirement, boosting your retirement savings!
Good advice loses its value if it is not implemented. We provide strategies to help you build, manage, and utilise your wealth. Some strategies require a financial product to enable the advice to be implemented. For example, we may recommend you protect your income against injury or illness. In this instance we would recommend the implementation of an income protection plan from one of our income protection providers.
At Optimise we recognise and understand financial decisions need to be reviewed regularly, as circumstances inevitably change throughout one’s life. We want you to live a fuller, richer more enjoyable life, living more and worrying less! Our ongoing support will give you the peace of mind and confidence that your finances are in capable hands. Through our regular reviews and ongoing services we can save you time, reduce stress and provide you a lifetime plan to meet your goals. We will help your money work smarter and track it’s progression over time.
We firmly believe that this is a partnership and our goal is to help you achieve your financial and lifestyle ambitions. We encourage regular meetings with our clients to discuss their objectives and any strategy changes that may be required. Having regular meetings keeps momentum, ensures commitment from our clients and allows us to understand whether changes to the overall plan are required.
