    What Our Happy Clients Say

    To Kay and the team – many thanks for your very level-headed and calmly-reasoned rationale of our nation’s economic crisis – invaluable qualities to display in a panicky environment like our present one.

    We have been clients of SFS for over 15 years and we are very happy with the service we receive from the team. With SFS, we know that we have a whole team working for us and our investments. Thank you Kay and the team for your professional advice and friendship over the years. We would not hesitate in recommending SFS to our friends and family.

    I clearly remember my first meeting with Kay and Paul and the feeling of a massive load being lifted from my shoulders because of their empathy towards my situation and their willingness to assist me. Since that time I have been a very happy customer and rest with the knowledge that my retirement finances are indeed in very good, capable hands.

    Why Work With a Financial Advisor?
    A financial advisor can guide you on a path to understand your current financial situation and maximise your financial potential with targeted strategies. We can work with you and your family to make decisions that will add to the success of meeting your lifestyle goals and objectives, and use our knowledge and expertise to mitigate risks and enable your success.
    How Do I Get Started with Strategic Financial Solutions?

    You can contact us here or directly through the contact us page.

    Do You Provide Services Beyond Melbourne?
    Of course! We have clients from all over Australia although our physical premises are in Melbourne. We use Zoom and Microsoft Teams to hold virtual meetings with those clients who may not be able to attend in-person and we are also able to organise in-person meetings in other States in certain circumstances.
    At What Age Should I Seek Financial Advice?

    There is no one age that triggers the need for financial advice. Often a significant life event such as getting married, having children, getting a new job, buying a property or approaching retirement highlight the need to seek financial advice. However, time is often an asset in finance so if you have questions the sooner you get in touch the sooner we can provide guidance for meeting your long-term goals and objectives

    What Can I Expect from an Initial Appointment?

    We offer a 60 minute complimentary initial appointment where we will discuss who we are and how we work, what you are hoping to achieve from the process, your current financial situation, costs associated, and the value we can provide for your circumstances

    What Are Your Financial Planning Fees?

    Please note that before any work is undertaken we will provide you with a quote and will only commence once we receive your authorisation.

    As all our financial plans are tailored for each individual our fees vary depending on the complexity of our advice. You can see our Financial Services Guide here and we can be contacted here for a private discussion about your particular circumstances.

    Is it worth paying for a financial advisor ?

    Yes, it can be worth paying for a financial advisor if you need professional guidance to achieve your financial goals. Financial advisors can provide personalised advice tailored to your unique financial situation, help you make informed decisions about investments, retirement planning, tax strategies, estate planning, and more. The value of a financial planner also includes the potential to save you time and stress by managing complex financial tasks and helping you avoid costly mistakes. However, the worth of a financial advisor’s services may depend on your individual needs, financial complexity, and the quality of advice provided.

    Are financial advisers worth the cost?

    Financial advisers can be worth the cost for many individuals, especially those with complex financial situations or those seeking to optimise their financial planning and investment strategies. A good financial advisor not only helps in making informed financial decisions but can also offer insights into market trends, tax-saving strategies, and personalised investment advice that might not be easily accessible otherwise. The cost-benefit analysis of hiring a financial adviser depends on the specific services they provide, how they can help you achieve your financial goals, and whether the potential financial gains and savings outweigh the fees charged.

    Are financial advisors worth it in Australia?

    In Australia, financial planners can be particularly valuable due to the country’s complex tax system, superannuation regulations, and diverse investment opportunities. They can offer tailored advice to help you navigate these complexities, optimise your financial strategies, and work towards your long-term financial objectives, such as retirement planning, wealth accumulation, and tax efficiency. The worth of a financial planner in Australia also hinges on their ability to provide insights that align with your financial goals and circumstances. It’s advisable to conduct thorough research and choose a qualified, reputable financial advisor who can demonstrate how their services will benefit your financial journey.
