Unlocking Clarity in Financial Planning

Financial advisors help you reach your financial goals.

Simply put, a financial advisor, or financial planner as they are also referred to, develops action plans to align you with your goals. They devise bespoke strategies to eliminate risk and build wealth for people over the long term. The situation and objectives of each client are unique; thus, a unique action plan is always provided to get clients where they need to be in the most efficient manner.

It’s never too early to meet with financial planners.

There is no bad time to meet with a financial planner. In fact, the sooner you meet with Centaur’s Gold Coast financial planners, the sooner we can devise a financial plan to get you or your business on a winning path. If you are looking for a specific time, it would be during a significant life change or as you approach a new life stage, i.e., getting married, divorced, starting a family, changing jobs, or looking to retire.

Planning should always be considered a long-term process; put in the work now for a more prosperous future. Every day you delay will likely reduce your long-term nest egg.

Without any bias, financial advisors are worth the investment!

One of the most frequently asked questions surrounding financial planning is whether or not it is worth using an advisor. Granted, some people can gain riches without professional assistance, but statistics prove that financial advisors contribute to greater cash management and investment gains.

Research from a Queensland University of Technology study found that most clients viewed financial advice as making a positive contribution to their financial well-being. Moreover, they also agreed it was favourable to psychological well-being factors. 83% agreed that it improved their sense of security, 82% agreed that it improved their financial well-being, 78% agreed that it improved their sense of control, and 77% agreed that it heightened their peace of mind.

Additional studies by Vanguard and Russell Investments found that a good financial advisor can increase investor returns by 3–3.75%, respectively.

Conduct research and arrange a face-to-face meeting

Finding the best financial advisor isn’t easy, especially if you don’t know what to look for. It’s easy to be led astray by inflated projections that never eventuate. There is no way to ‘get rich quick’; it takes planning, patience, time, willpower, and determination; a good advisor will explain this and serve you with realistic expectations.

An excellent way to locate a suitable advisor is to look at their experience, services, and online reviews. You can initiate contact and arrange a face-to-face meeting if they look good.

Discuss your reasoning for meeting with them, your future ambitions, and any obstacles you may face. Gauge how they listen to you and take their suggestions to place you in a healthier financial situation.

If you perceive them as a good fit, you like their investment beliefs, you can be comfortable knowing you’ve found a good fit.

I am what you would term a DIY-er & was apprehensive employing the services of a financial advisor. But what a positive experience it's been with Bobby & all the staff at Centaur! Definitely more cost effective (& sanity saving!) than having to do it all ourselves.Their communication skills are excellent, no matter your level of education, they patiently worked out & explained in easy to understand terms all options available to us, without any pressure. With their up-to-date knowledge & close relationships with industry & government institutions, we are 100% confident our financial security is in the best hands. It was a completely stress-free process, we can now enjoy retirement.Would not hesitate recommending Centaur to anyone requiring financial assistance.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the review and rating, Rob. Bobby and the team love working with you, and we look forward to continuing to kick your personal and financial goals. Enjoy that retirement!

Nick and the team at Centaur went above and beyond to help my mum plan and organise finances for my fathers aged care placement. Nick helped my mum with other paperwork even after his job was complete. Nothing was too much trouble. The advice he gave was imperative to my family’s future. When Dad died the Centaur team sent flowers and condolences to our family which was very unexpected. I could not recommend them highly enough. Thanks Nick and team.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the review, Gabb. Your feedback has truly warmed our hearts and we are so happy that Nick was able to assist your family in a time of need. Thank you for trusting us.

The team at Centaur have provided us with great insight into investing. We had spoken to the others, before the team at Centaur. We found them to be responsive, timely with the information we required. As a result of the professionalism shown, I have sought their advice for my whole family. A special mention to Jenna Wheeler. What an asset, she is goal orientated and will extend herself to ensure clients needs are fulfilled. Highly recommended.
