Protecting your wealth is an important part of our holistic financial planning service. Our tailored Insurance Advice and Wealth Protection solutions factor in both the level and type of cover required to protect you and your family should the unexpected occur. We also consider your needs to provide Wealth Protection through appropriate structuring of assets through trusts or companies and will refer you to legal professionals if required to assist in their establishment.
The following videos look at key aspects to consider when it comes to protecting what is most important to you:
Understanding insurance: protecting what is important to you. Should something ever happen to you, personal insurance is there to provide financial security for you and your family.

Income Protection, Disability and Life Insurance Advice
Our approach to Insurance Advice generally follows these principles:
- Risk needs assessment based on your personal situation, including an assessment of financial protection required to cover outstanding debts, potential medical costs, lifestyle expenses and future retirement needs, using this information to provide tailored Insurance Advice.
- Optimisation of coverage, cost and tax consequences across Life Insurance, disability, income protection and trauma, including a review of any current policy features and premiums (such as the default cover inside your employer plan).
- Assessment of insurance holdings options (inside or outside of superannuation).
- Personalisation of cover based on occupation and health condition. We will work with you to find solutions where your job type or prior health conditions make insurance difficult.
The different types of Wealth Protection insurance cover we will consider for you include:
- life insurance
- total permanent disablement insurance
- income protection
- trauma cover
- temporary salary continuance.
Our Wealth Protection service is supported by a comprehensive insurance comparison from a range of providers to find the right solution for you.
For holdings structuring, we will consider the following aspects of your circumstances:
- Concept development of holding structures for assets based on tax, estate planning and asset protection requirements.
- Evaluation of effectiveness of discretionary trusts, self-managed super funds and investment companies as holding vehicles for investment assets. Consideration given to accessibility and both short and long-term tax optimisation.
- Set up of additional structures will only be advised if it provides a demonstrable benefit, given the cost involved in set up and ongoing compliance. We will refer you to legal professionals for the establishment of legal structures if required.
