Brian and Barbara’s story

It’s never too late to plan for the best

Planning for the best isn’t just about preparing for retirement. It’s about working with your financial planner to create the future you want – at any stage of life.

Meet Brian and Barbara - they love nothing more than travelling around Australia in their caravan. But when they were both faced with bouts of ill health, they realised they needed some changes to make life more manageable. With a holistic financial plan in place, they are now looking forward to the next chapter being their best chapter.
