The Finance Boomer – and Why You Should Be Planning for Your After Business Life

ABC now has a financial planning business called The Finance Boomer. Carol has an Aust Financial Services Licence, so those that have spent many, many years growing and managing their business, with the assistance of ABC, can now work towards ‘getting a return from that long term investment’, with pre and post retirement strategies. Carol provides strategic advice only, we DO NOT sell product, or accept trailing commissions. We provide personal strategic advice on the following:

  • Transition to Retirement Pensions
  • Superannuation
  • Investments inside and outside superannuation
  • Account based pensions
  • Cash flow and budgeting in retirement
  • Aged Care costing
  • Estate planning options
  • What is a SMSF? And do I need one?
  • Centrelink entitlements

If you are 10 years, or less, from retirement, then planning to retire needs to be as important, as the growing of the business, home mortgages and school fees etc. We also need to review the business processes, and look at what needs to be done, to prepare a business for sale, or moving to another generation. The Finance Boomer was started, so that over 50s focus on themselves, and their needs, as retirement can be as long as work life, and needs to be planned to be enjoyed. We can discuss and cost transition periods, such as part time employment, with part pensions.

Please call Carol on 07 3821 7589
for a FREE, no obligation, one hour meeting.
