What is superannuation planning?

Superannuation is essentially a long-term savings plan, during your working years, a portion of your income as mandated by law, is contributed to a superannuation fund. This fund is then invested in various assets, such as stocks and bonds, with the aim of growing your retirement savings over time. The goal is to accumulate a sufficient nest egg to support you in retirement when you’re no longer earning a regular income.

Why Superannuation Planning Matters

We think your golden years should have some sparkle, or the name doesn’t really fit. And sparkle’s hard to fund on a shoe-string budget.
Preferential tax treatment afforded to superannuation means there’s more to play with, because you didn’t send it off to the tax man. We like to think of super as the cornerstone of a comfortable retirement. Our dedicated team of financial advisors are here to guide you through the intricacies of superannuation, helping you make informed decisions for a prosperous future.

Why do I need a financial advisor for this?

Financial advisors begin by assessing your unique financial situation, including your current superannuation balances, financial goals, risk tolerance, and expected retirement age.

Based on this assessment, they develop a tailored superannuation strategy. This may involve consolidating multiple superannuation accounts, making additional contributions, or adjusting your investment portfolio to align with your goals.

Superannuation funds often offer different investment options, each with varying levels of risk and return. Financial advisors help you select investments that match your risk tolerance while maximising your potential returns.

Superannuation is subject to various tax rules, and financial advisors can help you navigate these complexities to minimise your tax liability, both while you’re contributing and when you start drawing upon your superannuation in retirement.

Advisors can help you determine how much you’ll need in retirement and create a plan to achieve this goal. They’ll consider factors like the age at which you want to retire, your desired lifestyle, and potential government benefits.

Superannuation planning isn’t a set-and-forget endeavor. Advisors continuously monitor your portfolio’s performance and make adjustments as needed to keep you on track to meet your retirement goals

Rachael and the amazing team at Thrive Financial are amazing. Impeccable attention to detail, efficient and thorough with communication, super impressive with regards to unbiased recommendations and product options. Having been involved in the industry in a previous life, we have been using financial planning and insurance services for many, many years now. But NEVER have we experienced this type of genuine, super-caring service, and considering we've now been with Rachael for a number of years, we haven't slipped in to the usual templated annual contact - Rachael is in communication with us regularly with a genuine service that is second to none. This year we made a major claim and in comparison to experiences friends of ours have been through, the process has been easier than a walk in the park. Nothing is too much trouble for Rachael, she goes above and beyond with ALL aspects of her client service, she's a genuine person with a heart of gold and genuinely cares. I can't recommend Thrive Financial enough if you're looking for a genuine service from someone who walks the walk. 10 out of 5 stars? Let's make it 20.

As a financially illiterate person, Callum has been a lifesaver for me. He has organised my whole life. He takes the time to understand where I am and helps me map out how to get where I want to go. He spends a lot of our sessions educating me on key concepts that are crucial to the success of my overall plan. If you are serious about making your money work for you - talk to Callum.

On Kabi Kabi country, I walk lightly through the hinterland and coastal landscapes to see many strong communities follow ancient pathways – I sit and listen to the birdsong and see whipbirds bounce through the undergrowth, searching for a mate – I acknowledge those who have walked this land before me, those I walk with and those that will lead – I am committed to listening deeply to their stories, and being guided by their knowledge.
