As school principals, we manage large amounts of money but when it came to retirement and the management and investment of our hard-earned funds I was much happier to work with Richard to ensure we had enough funds to support our new lifestyle for many years to come.

Embarking on your career and family years
It’s never too early to start planning your future journey – but it’s understandably not a priority for many, given the competing demands on your time and finances during the foundational years of your career, from children to friends, leisure and keeping fit. You may already be saving indirectly for retirement, if you’re paying down a mortgage.
Nonetheless, a great place to start at this stage of life includes understanding the importance and rules of minimising tax, salary packaging and insurance – and potentially increasing your superannuation contributions whenever you succeed in securing a pay rise. You might also want to consider investing out of your superannuation.
Did you know that the average super balance for those aged between 30 to 40 is $65,000? And for those aged between 40 to 50, it’s $145,000.
If you’re a couple looking to retire comfortably on a combined income of $80,000, you’ll need $1.3M to $1.8M in super (depending on whether you are taking the aged pension, or becoming a self-funded retiree). Similarly, single people seeking a comfortable lifestyle of $50,000 a year would need between $800,000 to $1M.
That can be a big gap to bridge. Thankfully, we can help build your wealth using particular wealth creation strategies, that include the following:
Deductible contributions from savings
