With a roadmap that ensures every financial decision they make moves them closer to their goals, your client can have greater confidence in their financial future. We’ll keep them regularly up to date on their investments and strategies, respond quickly to their questions, and always be able to explain what they’re invested in, and why.

Investment advice and management

There’s no right or wrong answer for how your clients should invest their money. Just what’s right for them. Our award-winning team* of investment specialists will take the time to understand your clients’ goals and design an investment strategy aligned to those goals. Our team will then carefully select suitable investments from our range of investment options, including direct shares, managed funds, fixed income, real estate, ESG and alternatives not usually available to individual investors.

We also monitor and report on all aspects of you clients’ investments to ease the compliance burden, and proactively show the progress of their investments.

Income, savings and debt management

Whether it’s for a mortgage, an investment property, growing a doctor’s practice or running a business - debt can be an important part of growing long-term wealth. Our advisers can help your clients build a comprehensive financial plan that measures debt, available cashflow and savings holistically. We can advise on whether gearing is suitable for your client, help find the right loans, consolidate and refinance high-cost debt, and structure repayments in a way that lets them make the most of the lifestyle they’ve earned.

Personal insurance

We provide tailored life insurance plans, TPD, trauma and income protection insurance to protect your clients’ income and lifestyle should something go wrong. We make sure their plans are tax-effective, work together and integrate with their investment and super strategies. Just as importantly, the plans are flexible to respond to your clients’ changing family and financial needs. Our team also specialise in providing for the unique insurance needs of doctors and people running their own businesses.

Retirement planning and transitioning

It’s important for your clients to have the right plan in place before retirement, so when the time comes, they can retire on their own terms. Our retirement planning solutions cover everything from income in retirement and asset protection to social security and aged care. For doctors who run a practice or business owners we can also help with the right way to sell – or pass on – a business.

We can also advise clients on developing an estate plan, philanthropic giving and strategies to manage inter-generational wealth transfer in a tax-effective and secure way.

Superannuation and pension management

Super is the most tax-effective way to save for retirement. We can help your clients maximise their super contributions, or if they prefer to manage their own retirement savings, set up a self-managed super fund (SMSF). We can take care of the time-consuming administration of SMSFs, or act as a trustee for a small APRA fund (SAF). We can also help your clients structure their finances and assets to get the maximum pension available.

Power of Attorney and Lifestyle Assistance

Lifestyle Assistance is a personalised service with a dedicated consultant who can assist your client with everyday tasks like paying bills or organising extra assistance around their home, to more complex jobs like end-of-year tax returns, investment guidance, legal advice or even aged care planning.

Our team can also help your client find a suitable aged care home that meets their needs. To ensure a smooth transition, we can also manage the administration, help coordinate the sale of existing property and arrange the move.

We can help your clients protect their assets by setting up trusts that provide for family and/or charitable causes.

Perpetual can also act as the appointed executor of an estate. This means we can take responsibility for administering any ongoing trusts created in your clients’ Will.
