Are you an Employer of Choice?


Since 1 July 2005, most employers have been required to give their employees a choice of fund for their superannuation guarantee contributions.

Only if the employee fails to choose or chooses a fund which cannot be used by the employer, will the employer be able to choose the fund.

You are stuck no more.   Since “Super Choice” was introduced, there is now a great deal of competition in the superannuation market given that employees can choose where to put their money.

A competitive market is good for consumers with an almost limitless choice of highly developed options for employees to choose from.

So, what does this mean for employers?  Many employers have identified Super Choice as an opportunity to offer their employees a more individualised option rather than then simply nominating an off the shelf industry fund.

At Hindsight Wealth we offer this service to employers.  We come in, meet with each of your staff members privately, create and present a tailored superannuation and personal insurance option for them. 

So why bother?  What’s the advantage of this approach for employer and employee?

Each employee is different.  Their life circumstances are different, their investor profile is different.  They should have a super fund tailored to them and not just a one size fits all group approach.

Group insurance offered to employees is often not appropriate to their needs.  A personalised, medically and financially underwritten insurance option will serve employees better.

Access to quality advice.  Employees often make poorly informed choices regarding super and insurance.  By providing a personalised Statement of Advice they will be getting quality advice suited to them.

This is an additional service you can provide your employees.  You’ll be an employer of choice and your employees will appreciate having this service offered to them.

Finding the time to provide this service to your employees can be challenging.

Hindsight Wealth will come to your workplace and speak with your employees as a group either before or after hours or during a lunch break.  Alternatively, we can arrange a group presentation at our offices in Portside or an online group meeting at a time that suits your business.

If you would like to discuss how this could work in your business, be in touch.  If you wold like to make a presentation time for you and your employees, use my online calandar.

Times are tough. How can you position yourself to minimise the impact?

The last few weeks have been extraordinary to say the least. We’re battling a world wide health crisis and we face uncertainty in many aspects of our lives.  It’s true that there are simply some things beyond our control and we will more than likely see many changes to our everyday lives for the remainder of 2020 and beyond. So, what can be done?  On the other side of this, many people will be left with dramatic financial stress, whether it be periods of unemployment, depleted cash reserves or battered superannuation balances.  And for many, timing will be an issue. Those who were weeks ago contemplating retirement may now need to change their plans. And those that are still accumulating for retirement have more than likely just seen their investments and superannuation return to levels of 5 or 6 years ago. Essentially the clock has be wound back in one way or another.  It may well be a good time to take stock and lay some foundations for when things do recover (which they

When Socks and Jocks don’t cut it anymore.

We have a solution  to avoid the old favourites: socks and jocks this Father’s Day.  As this weekend is Father’s Day, the focus should be on Dad.  You can purchase the actual book or the digital copy  so Dad can access year - round savings from his smart phone.  Part proceeds from your purchase, also helps a local Brisbane charity:  Be Uplifted Inc Breast Cancer Charity – so everyone wins!  Click here  to purchase Dad his Entertainment Book subscription. Another gift you could give Dad is encouragement.  To encourage Dad to have a conversation with a financial adviser about his super and insurances.  Why?  Maybe Dad has started a new job or had a promotion. Maybe Dad is nearing retirement? When our lifestyle changes or work situation changes, it affects your super + insurances. Reviewing these regularly will make sure Dad stays on track. Perhaps you know Dad has a few super funds hanging out there from previous jobs. This can affect a few things – especially Dad’s back pocke
