Retiree Offerings

We split our retirement phase offering into financial advice and investment advice.

Our clients in the Brisbane area and beyond are encouraged to receive the complete suite of our offerings, however they are free to receive limited advice if they wish.

Financial advice

Our financial advice provides clients with the framework to maximise and protect wealth.  The main themes of our financial advice are tax minimisation and planning wealth distribution on death.  Our financial advice entails:

  • Tax minimization - utilising superannuation funds, superannuation pensions, discretionary trusts, children and grandchildren, corporate beneficiaries and/or lower income partners to distribute non personal services income to.  Careful consideration is made to the spouse superannuation contribution tax offset, mature age tax offset and the superannuation co-contribution scheme.
  • Estate Planning, including assets that sit outside your will such as Superannuation and property held as joint tenants.
  • Superannuation Advice - minimising superannuation "death taxes", maximising superannuation death payouts, account based pensions.
  • Allowing structure flexibility so if assets are crystallised, capital gains tax is minimised.
  • Keeping abreast of legislation changes to ensure the legality of our financial strategies and to take advantage of new ones.
  • Family wealth planning.

Investment advice

Our investment advice endeavors to maximise wealth, retirement incomes and/or maintain investment capital within the client's risk parametres.  Our investment advice entails:

  • Selecting asset classes - often property versus equities is a key issue.
  • Selecting specific assets within asset classes.
  • Investment strategies specific to the economic cycle and client views; these could include writing covered calls (buy/write strategy), corporate bonds and increasing weight in high beta stocks.
  • Appropriate gearing levels (if any).
  • Tactical versus strategic allocation i.e. timing the market.

We integrate our investment and financial advice in a tax focused manner.

" I contacted Chris Humphrey Private Wealth Management through a website enquiry seeking professional advice including a life insurance review. Chris took the time to fully understand my financial position, goals and needs to provide me with timely, relevant and easy to understand personal advice. This allowed me to make an informed decision about the types of insurance I really needed, my appropriate levels of cover and how to structure my cover to get the best value for my money."
