How financial planning can help?

Financial advice is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. A successful financial plan is one that has been tailored specifically for you. A financial planner can assess your individual needs, explain suitable investments and develop appropriate strategies. To help you get started, we can arrange a complimentary initial consultation with a Bridges financial planner.

Bridges can help you with:

  • Superannuation planning
  • Growing and protecting your wealth
  • Planning for retirement
  • Accessing social security (Centrelink & DVA)
  • Managing redundancy payouts
  • Estate planning
  • Aged care advice

  • Income from wages, salary, dividends, interest and rental properties
  • Living expenses.
