Why choose AWS?

Find out all the benefits of partnering with a non-institutional financial planner

Aligned Interests

Without institutional ownership, advice is truly in line with client interests.

Adaptive Strategies

We know everyone’s needs and objectives differ, so why should you be provided the same advice as everyone else? Your adviser will get to know you and provide personalised financial strategies.

Coaching & Education

These days it seems everyone is a financial expert – just ask your uncle about investment properties at your next family BBQ. To help you make informed decisions, we provide ongoing educational articles and fact sheets so you can be empowered with your own financial knowledge.

Customer Support

We understand that making life-altering financial changes can be scary – but you’re not alone. Our advisers partner with you to ensure you are supported every step of the way as you embrace your financial future.

Our Advantage

Unswayed by institutional ownership but retaining access to the entirity of the insurance, superannuation and investment market, AWS provides optimal choice with impartial advice – a winning combination.

Superannuation

As almost 10% of your wages, superannuation is one of your most important assets for retirement. However, many Australians are indifferent to the role that superannuation has in securing your lifestyle.

We help to demystify superannuation and provide powerful advice to supercharge your superannuation.

Property

An effective investment property strategy can add significant value to your position at retirement.

Many advisers are product driven, and fail to see the role that property can have in diversifying your portfolio.

We understand the nuances of property, and help build an effective portfolio for your retirement.

Protection

Financial advice too often assumes optimal wealth accumulation conditions. Life is full of surprises, so we work with our clients to ensure you are covered for any eventuality.

We offer acess to the entire personal insurance market to ensure your specific needs are met.

Tax

A heavy tax bill can weigh on your retirement prospects.

Our panel of accountants ensure the tax advice you receive helps minimise the impact of tax on your overall wealth.
