David’s wife had already retired when he came to see us at WPA for financial advice. With his 60th birthday approaching, David had a session with one of our financial consultants to explore how much longer he needed to work so he could begin planning his retirement.

With a good amount already in superannuation, David hoped the addition of a small inheritance would mean he could retire early.

We helped David with his retirement planning by providing financial advice on investment and wealth creation. As his financial adviser, we were able to help David create a strong investment structure. “My financial planner helped me find the most tax effective solution by dividing our funds between super and other investments,” David says.

Further financial advice from WPA meant David and his wife could put some money aside to help their son with a deposit for his first home.
