Liston Newton's Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.

Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. Their Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a financial adviser?

The right financial planner in Melbourne is invaluable. They work with you to help you create and structure your financial goals and then stick by your side to ensure you stay on track to reach them.

Financial advisors provide practical, actionable financial support that helps you manage your money better, from building tailored wealth creation strategies for your financial situation to improving your investments with a better investment strategy. In addition, they’ll provide advice on personal insurance, help you plan your estate and even advise on cryptocurrency.

Liston Newton Advisory can provide all these services and more. It’s all in a day's work for the best financial advisors in Melbourne.

How do I pick a good financial adviser?

Picking a good financial adviser is essential. Once you’ve found the right one for you, they’ll stick around for the long term.

So when making your decision, be sure to ask all the right questions upfront. Check their qualifications, ask about their skills and experience, and look into their track record of helping individuals in a similar situation to you.

Importantly, you need to feel comfortable with them. If you’re happy to have robust discussions about your finances and trust that they know what they’re doing – you’re on the right track.

How much does a financial adviser in Melbourne cost?

Financial advice isn’t like completing your tax return: there’s no one set fee for the service. Instead, the cost of financial advisory services in Melbourne will depend on your personal financial goals and what you hope to achieve. The fee structure also considers the complexity of your finances, your preferred level of service, and how you want to receive your advice.

But the right financial adviser can be invaluable, so get in touch with us. We can discuss how much a Liston Newton financial adviser in Melbourne costs – and how we can help you plan for a brighter future.

What happens when I work with a financial adviser?

There are five main steps you’ll go through when working with an independent financial advisor in Melbourne.

You’ll have a discovery meeting with them to discuss your current financial situation, determine your needs, and see if you’re the right fit for each other. Then, your financial adviser will create a proposal with a high-level overview of your areas of advice, plus a timeframe in which it will be delivered.

Once you approve this, they’ll then prepare your financial action plan to help you achieve your objectives. This can include:

  • Wealth creation plan
  • Investment strategies
  • Retirement planning
  • Estate planning
  • Personal insurance
  • Cryptocurrency financial advice

Following this, they’ll help you implement the plan. Then once your plan is in motion, they’ll meet your regularly to review your financial advice and ensure it continues to work for you as your circumstances change.

It’s a comprehensive service. Get in touch with our financial planners in Melbourne, and we’ll walk you through our specific process.
