Financial Advice Case Study – Bob and Ann
Bob and Ann *, aged 70 and 61 recently sold a business. They came to us for financial advice. They were looking for ways to use the funds available from the sale and their savings to provide an income for their retirement.
Between them, Bob and Ann had limited superannuation and only one had reached Aged Pension age. They were looking to live on $50,000 per annum throughout their retirement.
Bob and Ann wanted to maximize their entitlement to the Centrelink Age Pension to reduce their reliance on their capital. It was important to them that they would be able to comfortably live throughout their retirement on their investments.
Through the financial advice and financial plan we provided to Bob and Ann, they are now able to retire on their income goal of $50,000. They will receive a retirement income stream, maximize their Centrelink entitlements through various superannuation contribution strategies and caps. Due to the investment strategy selected, we’ve ensured they were invested in something they felt comfortable with. We expect their money to last past their life expectancy.
