Fix My Super

'Fix My Super' exists to help everyday Australians identify and address all of their Superannuation problems

Government research and news reports consistently indicate that the majority of Australians are struggling when it comes to saving enough money to build a secure retirement. While the “savings shortfall” can be traced back to a variety of problems, far too many Australians have left their Super up to chance and aren’t sure what to do. 

That’s where we come in.

Not sure if your Super is on the right track?

Worried you’ll outlive your retirement savings?

Concerned you might have left things too late?

Want to know if you’re with the wrong Super fund?

Curious about whether your Super is underperforming?

Want to learn the strategies to boost your Super balance?

What if you could boost your Super by double or triple in 15 years?

Do you find the Super system confusing to navigate?

Could you, a friend, or a family member use expert help?

Not sure where to start?

Super Made Simple For Everyday Aussies

We understand that many people put off fixing their finances because the subject can seem daunting or complicated. For this reason, we see the most important part of our job as putting high-quality information in simple, easy-to-understand terms – no matter your background, financial knowledge, or stage of life. There’s a world of options waiting to be explored.

Why Do Some Retire With So Much More?

Wondering how some Australians manage to retire with a Super balance that dwarfs the national average? It’s not secret knowledge. The problem is that most Australians remain unfamiliar with the Superannuation system, what strategic options are available, and how to make a significant difference in their retirement savings in a short time. To avoid spending 20-30 years living in “retirement poverty,” we must address the Super crisis – and that starts with knowledge of the essentials.

Many Solutions Are Available to Fix Your Super

Many people think the strongest options for wealth creation involve moving to an unnecessary Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) or investing in direct property, but this is entirely unique to one’s personal circumstances. Ultimately, there is no one-size-fits-all.

 

Strategies such as changing your fund management, making personal contributions, consolidating multiple Super accounts, and optimising investment portfolios can play a crucial role in enhancing your Superannuation and financial well-being.

 

Unlike traditional Super funds that are “passively managed,” Platform Superannuation portfolios, which are ‘actively managed,” are able to counteract the impact of market shocks such as COVID and can proactively take advantage of investment opportunities in the markets. Having an actively managed portfolio could be worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars over the long run.

Traditional Funds vs. Platform Wrap Superannuation Accounts

5 YEAR AVERAGE

Passively Managed

Typical industry Super funds, which are “passively managed,” generally return between 5%-10% as a 5-year average (on a balanced investment mix).

VS

5 YEAR AVERAGE

Actively Managed

By comparison, “Actively Managed” wholesale investment funds available to Platform Superannuation funds can provide an additional 3%-4% higher return over the same period. These returns are achieved by having access to over 3000 Wholesale Investment options which are not available to you in a typical industry super fund. Our Platform Superannuation funds offer wholesale fund pricing discounts, without requiring a significant investment.

Cameron Kelly has de-mystified the navigation moving from a locked down deferred superannuation fund to another fund with an allocated pension. He has provided high quality advice and expertise in allowing me to make confident and informed decisions about my financial future. Having an actively managed super fund allows me to take immediate advantage of market changes. Essential Planner staff are brilliant and very helpful with superb customer service with all enquiries, ensuring immediate follow up and resolution of issues that may arise. The package provided by Cameron through consultation meets our current and future financial needs. I strongly recommend that others consider Cameron Kelly and Essential Planner to manage their superannuation financial situation.
