Future Focus Financial Planning, Wollongong, Australia

We launched our business 3 years ago at UOW Innovation Campus and our focus is on delivering holistic financial planning services to the Illawarra community with a client values driven focus for investment decisions. Our business exists to help friends, family, and our local community through financial advice towards the future they desire.

Our small team of four have between us 36 years’ experience in Financial Planning in the Illawarra.

Our work is demanding yet rewarding, and we love doing it together. We are friendly high-achievers that deliver for our clients and community – all while looking out for each other, rewarding effort along the way, and providing tailored personal and professional growth opportunities.

We believe we represent what Financial Planning should be rather than what it once was (like many on XY!), and our success in our first 3 years is a testament to that, building a strong base of clients and advocates who love what we do.

Our business continues to evolve through industry leading approaches to client focused advice, client engagement, values-based investing, staff incentives and development, and business management.
We are currently the only financial planning business in the Illawarra specialising in ethical investing and members of the Ethical Advisers Co-Operative.
