    Retirement planning

    We are able to provide our clients with guidance and advice on the best strategies to help them reach their retirement goals. We will help you by asking some key questions:

    • What age would you like to retire at?
    • What lifestyle would you like in retirement?
    • Do you currently have any debts to pay off?
    • Are you planning to travel or buy a new car in retirement?
    • How much do you currently have in your superannuation and other investments?

    The strategies that we will consider include:

    • Transition to retirement pensions
    • How superannuation and investment assets should be structured in retirement; optimising eligibility for Centrelink age pension entitlements where applicable
    • Salary sacrifice to superannuation
    • Investment of your funds across a number of assets to take advantage of diversification and maximise your investment returns

    Personal and business insurance

    Protection of your income and assets are paramount for peace of mind. Risk management is a key part of our financial planning strategies. Our risk specialist will advise our clients on the different types and levels of risk cover they require to ensure their long-term financial security.

    We can help you:

    • Determine the types and level of insurance required
    • Select the best insurance provider based on your needs, and
    • Implement your chosen cover

    We provide advice on:

    • Life cover – also known as term life insurance or death cover
    • Total and permanent disability (TPD) cover
    • Trauma cover
    • Income protection

    Fiducian business risk

    Business risk insurance should be a key part of any strategy for business owners because income protection is only part of the overall risk strategy. Many small businesses are under-insured.

    We can discuss and help you implement:

    Key person insurance

    Key person insurance is life insurance, total and permanent disablement (TPD) insurance or critical illness cover on the key person (or persons) in a business. In a small business, this is usually the owner, the founders or sometimes a key employee. These are the people who are crucial to the business.

    The purpose of the policy is to protect the financial position of the business by providing a lump sum payment to offset the estimated losses that would arise upon the death, total and permanent disablement (TPD) or critical illness of that key person.

    Buy/sell agreement

    A buy/sell agreement is like estate planning for your business, almost like a ‘business Will’ The insurance proceeds from the agreement can be considered as the assets of this Will.

    There are two main issues that need to be addressed when planning for business succession in your estate plan:

    • the legal transfer of control and ownership of the business, and
    • the way the transfer of the business will be funded.

    A properly structured buy/sell agreement ensures that owners

    • can get the full value of their equity in the business at the time of their departure or death, or
    • facilitate the continuing business owners in financing a buy-out of that share of the business.

    Business expense insurance

    Business expense insurance is essentially a compliment to your income protection insurance. Business expense insurance helps you cover the portion of your business expenses for which you are responsible should you be temporarily unable to work due to injury or illness.

    Business expenses insurance generally reimburses you for certain regular business expenses such as rent, utilities, lease costs and depreciation. It is important to note not all expenses will be covered. Generally it will cover your fixed business costs and keep your business afloat while you are recuperating.


    Aged care

    Aged care is increasingly becoming a complex area for families to navigate when they have an aging parent or (parents) who need some care. One of the common issues faced is that clients hear a lot about the high cost of care but are not sure what this means or whether they can afford the fees.

    Moving into an aged care home can be a difficult and emotional decision for the person moving, as well as their family and friends. There are five steps to follow when someone decides to move into an aged care home.

    The five steps are:

    • Assess eligibility – ACAT* Approval
    • Find an aged care home
    • Determine fees and charges
    • Options for funding aged care
    • Plan your estate

    Wealth creation and investments

    There are many options and a great deal of information on how to build wealth. Most people usually just want to make the most of what they have, avoid mistakes and take advantage of opportunities. Deciding on the right financial path for you and determining the right balance of investments is not always easy. That is how we can help.

    We will consider a number of strategies including:

    • Savings plans
    • Superannuation including salary sacrifice
    • Managed Fund investments
    • Shares and property

    The strategy that’s best for you will depend on your financial goals, the amount you have to invest or surplus income that you have available to save, and your attitude to risk.

    A diversified approach to creating wealth ensures that your risk is spread across different assets, including cash, fixed interest investments, Australian and International shares and property.


    Estate planning

    Estate Planning is about more than just having a will. It is a vital part of your long term financial security and needs to be considered when planning for your future. It is important to understand the legal requirements so that your assets are passed onto beneficiaries as per your specifications and in a tax effective manner.

    The key areas that need to be considered include:

    • Wills and Testamentary Trust
    • Power of Attorney
    • Guardianship
    • Binding nominations

    We can work closely with your solicitor (or can recommend one if required) to prepare estate planning documents to meet your needs.

  • What our clients say about us

    Ross Williamson
    Greenacre, NSW

    “I have been a client of Fiducian Financial Services since 2014 having decided that I needed to consolidate my multiple superannuation accounts and ensure I was on track for retirement. Fiducian have been easy to deal with, have assisted me every step of the way and I am happy with the result. I would highly recommend their services and would have no hesitation recommending Fiducian Financial Services Macarthur to my family and friends.”


    Ken & Diane Allsopp
    Campbelltown, NSW

    “I was coming up to my retirement and realised my wife and I would need some advice. We were referred to Leasa by a friend and we were immediately impressed. She was able to look at our complete financial picture and by applying a new strategy increased our weekly income as well as implementing my private pension. We found she explained things clearly and feel confident and comfortable knowing she is managing our financial affairs.”


    Terry & Natalie Cooper
    Milperra, NSW

    “As we were in our early 40’s we felt it was time to think about planning properly for our financial future. We met with Leasa, who was recommended by a friend and immediately felt comfortable. Leasa explained our options clearly, and listened to what we wanted to achieve. She even located $60,000 of lost superannuation I didn’t know I had. Leasa also arranged for us to meet with the risk specialist John Williamson to review our insurances. John compared and researched our existing cover with all the providers and was able to recommend more comprehensive cover at a more affordable premium through our superannuation. Their team then assisted us with all the paperwork to bring our funds together and set up the new insurances. Leasa and John meet with us annually to keep us informed and are always available whenever we have any questions.”


    J & J Hunter
    Picnic Point, NSW

    “Retirement was looming. So to ensure we would be looked after financially, our first thoughts were to contact a bank. Fortunately for us however, we met Financial Planner Macarthur Leasa Collins who impressed us with her in-depth knowledge of financial matters, particularly in the area of Allocated Pensions. Her expertise and knowledge led us to engage her to advise and initiate our allocated pension funds for us. The relationship over a period of 12 years has been most rewarding, despite the troubles of 2008 around the world, Leasa insulated us as much as possible. She kept to a minimum our losses with her financial skills, regular contact and backed by the Company she represents, Fiducian Financial Services.

    For peace of mind with your finances, Leasa is a person you can rely on.”


    Frank Schocher
    Milperra, NSW

    “I have had a number of financial advisors but have never felt fully comfortable until dealing with Leasa Collins from Fiducian Financial Services. From the outset Leasa gave me confidence in her knowledge but more importantly she listened to me and openly discussed my views. Leasa understood my concerns, she put together a plan that not only showed she had listened it also had realistic future growth, it made me feel I was still in control of my money, I wasn’t a $ sign I was part of the Fiducian family. I have referred a number of friends and, they have felt the same, not one complaint. It’s a great feeling seeing your personal wealth grow with a personal service you don’t get from an institutional financial group. You work hard for your money and deserve to be heard, I guarantee you will get that from Leasa, make the call. ”
