When Susan arrived in Australia, she was excited about working in the health industry. At the end of her first financial year, an accountant at SVA helped her prepare her tax return.

While there, her accountant explained how one of our WPA financial planners could help her achieve financial security so she decided to explore her options.

Susan didn’t have income protection. As her financial consultants, we organised that first. “This gave me peace of mind that if I couldn’t work, I could still cover my expenses,” Susan says.

Then we looked at other risk insurances, like life insurance to cover Susan’s debts.

A year later, when she had a small amount of money to invest, we helped Susan with her first shares and securities investments.

Susan returned recently with more money. “I discussed options with my investment adviser and the plans are being put in place,” she says. “The advice I’ve received from WPA gives me confidence that my money is safe and working for me.”
