Educating the kids

A good education is one of the best starts you can give your child, but although it doesn't have to, it can cost a lot of money. A little research and planning now could save you some financial worries in the long run. The earlier you start to save the better.

Common questions to consider

  • How much will my children's education cost?
  • How do I invest for my children's education?
  • When should I start investing for my child's education?
  • What types of savings plans are available?
  • Should I put investments in my child's name?
  • My child starts secondary school next year. Is it too late to start saving? 

We can help:

It is a fact that children become more expensive as they get older. At the same time you might alter your work arrangements and your income could change. You'll need to make a plan for this. You may need to protect your family with insurance and a comprehensive Will. 

  • Develop a plan based on your goals, situation and timeframe (eg how much it is likely to cost to educate your child or upgrade your house).
  • Set an investment and budget management strategy to accumulate money for your goals.
  • Review, recommend and organise appropriate insurance.
  • Recommend superannuation strategies to ensure you're still saving for retirement and minimise the total tax you are paying right now.
  • Recommend if you need a Will or need to review your Will with a solicitor.
