We are a financial advisory firm who work closely with progressive accounting firms and their clients in South Australia.

Why did we come into the office today?

We exist to assist you in successfully dealing with your financial planning, investment and insurance needs, with a specialist interest and expertise in Self Managed Super Funds.

Our objective is to provide you with informed, well researched, clear and straight forward advice that will assist you in making sound financial decisions.

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

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

Your accountant is one of the clever ones, who understand the importance of focusing on what you do best and partnering with trusted advisers to do what they do best.

Together, as a team with individual and specialist knowledge and skills, we focus on you, 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 the Key. Succession, estate and superannuation planning all have tax considerations and are best delivered as part of an integrated plan and process. Your accountant will work with us to bring these elements together and to assist you through the planning process

Also in Nick's corner are the professional support team from Merit Wealth, backed by a wealth of 'best of breed' industry know-how and resources.
