How Did Your Super Go in 2018?


We’re now two months post June tax time and before we know it, we will be seeing Christmas decorations and gifts filling 
retail stores as December and summer creep closer!

One thing we can be sure of is that as our lives get busier and busier, we tend to put some things on the back burner that may not seem important to us at the time. 

Unfortunately, superannuation and insurance too often seem to fall victim to this train of thought. 

Perhaps you might still be in that “review” state of mind having just prepared all your tax documents?  Take the time to have a quick look at your latest super statement you would have received for tax purposes this year.  Did it perform well? Do you understand the insurances you’re paying for? 

The last 12 months has been very good for local equity markets.  If your super fund hasn’t performed well, then it may be time to consider if the investment options you’ve chosen are suitable to your circumstances.

Make a new financial year resolution with yourself not to put your super review on the back burner.  Your superannuation is simply too important for you not to spend some time getting it right.  

If it is just once a year you review your super + insurances, it will be time well spent.  Hindsight Wealth’s reviews are free with no obligation.

There are many ways we can hold your review: face to face, Uber Chat + Ride, online meeting via my calendar – choose your date, text me a photo of your latest super statement, email or phone me.

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
