James and Lorna

James and Lorna are in their late 60’s and have a fabulous family of 3 kids with partners and grandchildren. They have lived a life of service as a minister and a teacher. They were very keen to be able to live in retirement without scrimping! They’re not as you will see!

Where we started

A couple of years out from retirement we worked with them to develop a retirement plan and since retirement have enjoyed their passion for travel without compromising their living standards at home.

  • Will my money last?
  • How much can I spend?
  • Enjoying life!
  • Helping my kids (one of our grandsons is disabled)
  • Inheritance – best use of this
  • Estate Planning

What we did together

We worked with James and Lorna:

  • to build a solid financial plan in retirement,
  • ..which enables them to enjoy their travel
  • We significantly reduced the investment risk that they were taking to enable them to be much more certain about living in retirement
  • We were able to reduce the amount of tax that they were paying
  • We sorted out their estate planning so that when travelling everything was in place
  • Helped grandson with some medical expenses

...and the outcomes were...

  • Now in retirement doing lengthy yearly overseas trips
  • We are really confident that our money will last without us scrimping!
  • Assisting our family is great - knowing that we can afford it!
  • Know that our affairs are structured to provide the right income, tax effectively
