Description

It’s never too early to start thinking about your super.

Your employer should pay 9.5% of your salary into a super fund, through the Superannuation Guarantee (SG). You can also top up your super by making your own contributions, and where you are eligible the government may add to it through co-contributions and the low income super contribution. Different super contributions can make and/or save you money.

In this course, we’ll tell you why super is a smart way to save, the tax benefits, and how to put yourself in a strong financial position come retirement.

This course is designed for anyone looking to gain an excellent, practical knowledge of superannuation contributions. Sound intimidating? Don’t worry! This course is designed with complete beginners in mind. No previous personal finance knowledge (or math!) is required.

As for how this course is structured, we’ve designed it to maximise your enjoyment and engagement. That’s why we teach you an entire personal finance curriculum through a series of short, engaging videos. Each video teaches you everything you need to know (practically-speaking) about a specific topic, like superannuation, in a way that even a total beginner can understand.

Finally, as for your presenter, Rob has been a Financial Planner and Specialist Self Managed Super Fund Adviser for over 20 years and loves offering common sense solutions to financial problems in the most effective way possible. So what are you waiting for?

Hi,

Thanks for dropping by! 

A bit about me:

My passion is to work with Self-Managed Super Fund Trustee’s and other Motivated Investors who love having control and input as to how their money is invested for their future.

For the past 17 years I’ve been working as a financial adviser helping superannuation investors, small business owners (including farmers) and direct share enthusiasts take back control of their financial situation from the banks and the large institutions.

BTW...

In case you're wondering, no. There are no “get rich quick” schemes here, the advice I give is based on common sense that my clients understand that get results. No fluff, no hype. 

My weapons of choice... Common sense. If you don’t get it we don’t move ahead until you do. AND investing directly and avoiding bank product reduces fees, saves tax and gives you control.

Let me know if you need anything, share your updates and contact me. If you have a financial related question you would like answered!

Cheers,

Rob
