Superannuation simplified

In the journey of securing our financial future, superannuation stands as a cornerstone. With over 15.6 million Australians actively investing in their super savings, comprising a staggering $3.3 trillion in the asset pool, it’s a testament to the importance placed on super providing for a secure financial future.

As everyone’s career, life and financial demands are different people should not have a cookie cutter approach to super. Seeking a tailored approach, as unique as you are, will ultimately yield greater results. Having expert advice is the game-changer. It will empower you to strategically navigate which super options are best for you so you can think about your financial future with confidence.

Superannuation offers significant benefits:

Tax-Effective Savings

Grow your nest egg faster with the power of compounding and concessional taxed contributions. Your Ords financial adviser will be able to guide you on when and how much you should be contributing to your super.

Long Term Investment

Time is your friend. Superannuation allows you to invest long term, smoothing out stock market fluctuations and maximising returns. Your Ords adviser will be able to help you choose a superannuation fund that meets your risk appetite and financial goals, so you can decide whether a conservative, balanced or growth option is right for you. What’s right may change at different points in your life, your Ords adviser knows super is not a set and forget investment, it’s about aligning the underlying investments and investment strategy to suit your life stage.

Insurance Options

Super funds generally offer insurance coverage such as income protection, life and disability insurance that you can pay for out of your superannuation rather than your hip pocket. Your Ords adviser can help you determine what level of insurance is right for your situation and family status.

Retirement Security

Around 16 million Australians have a super account but more than 4.5 million Australians could be forced to keep working beyond retirement age because they won’t have enough money in their super to support their lifestyle. Super is compulsory savings to help people build a comfortable retirement income but many people underestimate how much money they will need in retirement. Your Ords adviser will be able to help you determine how much you should be putting into super depending on your age, career outlook, other investments and situation, to take the worry out of whether you will ‘have enough’.
