Canberra has come a long way from her early days as a quiet, rural community. Flourishing over the past hundred years, the city stands proud as Australia’s capital, a hub for Western New South Wales and a major tourist destination for Australian and international visitors.

With main industries comprising public administration and safety, and the acting headquarters of many Australian public services, Canberra enjoys an enviable economic track record, performing consistently over the years. The city boasts one of the lowest unemployment rates in Australia, combined with one of the strongest job markets. Additionally, her highly educated workforce earns the highest average full-time income in Australia.

Over half of Canberra’s workforce is employed by the private sector, and business economy is strong with more than 25,000 businesses servicing the region from a micro to international level. As a result, Canberra has the highest average disposable income of any capital city in Australia.


It’s no surprise then that more and more ‘Canberrans’ are actively seeking out qualified financial planners to help with strategies and investment advice to make their income work smarter, and pursue their short and long term financial goals.

The increasing awareness of the importance of identifying financial goals to build and protect wealth, combined with the explosion in recent years of Self Managed Super Funds (SMFS) and other long term financial strategies has seen an upsurge in enquiry from cashed-up ‘Canberrans’ wanting tailored solutions to manage their incomes and maximise their financial futures.

Now more than ever people are realising that accessing a trusted financial adviser is a good investment in itself. From budgeting to planning for retirement, to saving and preparation for educational funding or managing your tax and insurance needs, a professional financial planner can tailor a solution to bring the elements of your financial life together.

Every individual and family has unique goals, limitations and assets, and personalised advice will result in a financial plan or investment strategy that will ultimately save you time, money and offer you peace of mind for your future.

The tangible benefits of financial planning services are multi-faceted to suit Canberra’s dynamic economic and lifestyle climate. They can include:

  • Self Managed Super Funds
  • Strategic Financial Advice
  • Investment Management
  • Risk Management and Corporate Super
  • Division of Marital Assets
