How financial advice can help you

  • Investment services
    Working with our financial planners, gurus and researchers to develop the right investment plans that are unique to you — building wealth and replacing income.

    Whether you’re thinking about retirement or moments away from taking the leap, Bridges can help you understand your income needs and work together to create the right retirement strategies.
  • Personal insurance
    Protecting your family and loved ones starts by looking after the most important thing in life — you. We’re here to make sure lost income is replaced, debt can be repaid, and recovery is swift, if the unexpected should happen.
  • Estate planning
    Putting the plans in place to protect your family and your assets, while taking away unnecessary stresses and financial hardships — ensuring you’re able to support future generations and control your legacy.
  • Aged care support
    Helping you make an informed decision so any move into aged care is as seamless as possible — whether it’s for yourself, your spouse or an aging loved one.

Everyone has different financial needs depending on their life stage and individual circumstances and there is a lot to consider when trying to secure your financial future.

Whether you’re saving for a house deposit, planning for retirement, already have an investment portfolio or are thinking about investing your money, our financial planning partner Bridges may suggest a plan to meet your goals.
