Why you should enlist the help of a financial planner


Create Your Life Plan

Achieving ULTIMATE financial freedom is our key performance indicator (KPI) for our clients. Helping you to understand what your ‘freedom gap’ is, through our unique Life Plan process may change the course of your life!


Invest in Suitable Property

Did you know you can purchase property with your super fund? With an SMSF you can own residential or commercial property, which can be a wise investment. Not only that, recent changes in legislation now allow your super fund to borrow money for real estate investment, whether that’s in Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Sydney or further afield. There are significant legal requirements for borrowing within a super fund, so talk to us about how to do this.


Implement Your Wealth Growth Strategy

A superannuation investment strategy is both a legal requirement, and a great way to ensure your best possible financial future. Having an SMSF gives you control over where and how you invest for your future, and we want to help you get it right.


Administration and Audit Included

Any superannuation fund comes with a large amount of paperwork and due diligence required. We at The Garis Group are SMSF specialists, providing a comprehensive SMSF accounting, administration and investment service.
