Independent Financial Advice in Canberra
I'm Andrew Saikal-Skea, an Independent Financial Adviser based in Canberra.
I am 100% independent and conflict-free and I do not charge commissions or asset-based fees.
I give clients the confidence to achieve their goals. I do that by evaluating where they are now and any challenges they are facing. Then I design and implement a plan to get them to where they want to be.
Qualified to deliver the best outcomes
Practising as a financial adviser at a leading industry fund and a boutique advisory has given me balanced experience.
I'm a Certified Financial Planner® with the experience, post-graduate education, and independence to provide the best advice for my clients.
Wide range of advice areas and engagements
I help clients accumulate wealth to achieve their goals, transition into retirement and enjoy their retirement with their minds at ease.
Topics I advise on are:
Defined benefits including the PSS, CSS, MSBS and DFRDB.
Self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs).
There is a range of options to access advice including through a single engagement or a recurring partnership.
During our first meeting we do one or both of the following:
Discovery - A chance for me to hear about you, your goals and any concerns you have.
General advice - I can provide plain-speaking general advice to help further your understanding of concepts.
The cost of this meeting is $330 (inc GST).
If I believe you would benefit from personal advice and you decide to engage me as your financial adviser, I will provide a plan to achieve your goals.
First I conduct a deep analysis of your position and identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
We then partner to ensure you are in a peak position and have the highest probability of achieving your goals.
If you need advice around a single issue or event, I can advise on a project basis.
Associations I belong to:
I am a member of the ADF Financial Adviser Referral Program.
