What is financial planning?

The aim of financial planning is more than just managing your savings and investments. It's about helping you to plan for a future lifestyle that is as good as it can possibly be. You work hard so why not make sure your money is working as hard as you are.

Whether you are in your carefree 20s, consolidating 30s, comfortable 40s or cruising 50s, the advice of a professional financial planner can be critical in helping you achieve your financial goals by developing a strategy that will work for you.

Nexus Mutual is proud to offer you the services of Bridges, one of Australia's largest financial planning and stockbroking groups, providing financial planning services to credit union and building society members since 1985.
