What We Do

Superannuation

Getting the most out of your Superannuation is important. At Australian Wealth Solutions we like to help you build it up and retire comfortably. There are great tax advantages and fees play a huge part in making sure your retirement balance is sufficient.

Insurance

Protect your family’s financial future with Australian Wealth Solutions. We will tailor a complete insurance package that suits your individual needs. We don’t just quote sums insured, we explain the science behind the numbers.

Debt Management

In debt? Don’t stress, it happens to the best of us. We have debt solutions to suit any circumstance. Our debt specialist will help you manage it and then own it.

Estate Planning

The act of preparing for the transfer of a person’s wealth and assets after his or her death. Estate Planning is an ongoing process and should be started as soon as one has any measurable asset base. As life progresses and goals shift, the estate plan should move to be in line with new goals.

Aged Care

During this emotional time, most of the important decisions are financial. Structuring assets and deciding on how much Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) to pay can make a huge difference. Our results speak for themselves and we can help with any Aged Care query.

Retirement planning

After working for approximately 45 years of your life, retirement is inevitably the end goal. We help you decide what retirement means to you and design a retirement lifestyle that suits your personal interests.

Testimonials

“Our dream was to sail away to South-East Asia experiencing different cultures, food and lifestyles, meeting and living amongst the people and learning about their way of life. When Sam asked us how long we wanted to be away, we didn’t really have an answer – as long as possible. He advised us to start budgeting and to invest our superannuation with him and to plan for the future. Little did we know that the breakfast meetings, the coffees, the Skype conferences and the planning would enable us to spend ten years doing just that. We are now living the dream, sailing in SE Asia and living amongst people in Indonesia and Malaysia, sharing what we have with them and learning other languages. Sam has made our dream come true and we value him as if he were family.”
