How a Financial Adviser can help in the lead up to retirement
The best time to start saving for retirement is today, it doesn't matter how old you are. The sooner you start and the younger you are when you start, the easier it is to include saving a little extra into super in your budget.
A small amount invested today becomes a surprisingly larger amount the longer it is left to grow due to the power of compounding returns. The advice and guidance of a Financial Adviser can help you really make the most of what you can save for retirement, as well as help you achieve your other financial and lifestyle goals along the way.
If you are one of the many Australians who are late to start focusing on saving for retirement, all is not lost. Even in the last five years before retirement a lot can be done. It's important to plan for what's next around the comer, including any changes you might be making as you approach this major milestone.
