About Us

We exist to help you successfully deal with your financial planning, investment and insurance needs, with a specialist interest and expertise in self-managed super funds.

Why Did We Come Into the Office Today?

Our objective is to provide you with straightforward and clear advice that will help you make sound financial decisions.

Our aim is to ensure that the decisions that you will make have a positive impact on your most precious assets – your family, your business, and your future.

We focus on what we do best, and so does your accountant.

Your accountant understands the importance of concentrating on what you do best and partnering with trusted advisers to do what they do best.

Together, we’ll focus on you and your individual circumstances, objectives and dreams. We take a holistic view of your world, and work with you to ensure that all bases are covered.

Integration is key. Succession, estate and superannuation planning all have tax considerations and are best delivered as part of an integrated plan. Your accountant will work with us to bring these elements together and to assist you with the planning process.

Wayne Collis has been our financial planner since 2008. After spending many years working towards an early retirement, when it comes to handing your nest egg over to someone else to look after is like taking a leap of faith.  I suppose it could be compared to giving your sister the keys to your Ferrari to take for a spin around the block! Our concerns were short lived as Wayne has proven himself over the years as someone whom we trust implicitly.  He is very motivated and knowledgeable about the industry and takes a personal interest and dedicated approach to our needs. His communications regarding future investments and strategies that would benefit our portfolio is easily understood and is happy to explain things to us on a level that we can understand. We have no doubt, that Wayne will exceed in his position in the future to keep our money working for us, and maintain his professionalism, understanding and our trust that he has gained over the years.

Steve and Al Client

We have known Wayne for close to 25 years and he has been our Financial Adviser for around 20 years across three companies. We have always found Wayne to be honest and down to earth in explaining complex issues around investing and superannuation. He has helped us by proposing options to invest and minimise our tax to ensure we can retire comfortably. Over the years we have referred a number of our friends to Wayne and they have always been very happy with his service.
