Inheritance, Divorce and Compensation Settlement

Helping You Navigate Through a Life-Changing Event

Receiving a lump sum of money, either from an inheritance, or a divorce settlement or compensation payment is a life-changing, pivotal moment.  Often, it is also an incredibly emotional time as it is the outcome of a significant disruption in your life. In many cases, this money is what you’ll be relying on to set you up for the next opportunities that come your way, or to see you through the rest of your days. The right advice from the right people is more critical than ever.

At Empire Financial Group we believe a detailed strategy, coupled with education and support, will put your mind at ease, to give you the confidence that everything will be alright.  We have significant experience navigating clients through life-changing events, understanding that while managing money is important, managing your understanding and comfort levels with the decisions you make is key.

Your financial planner Perth strategy

Once your financial objectives are identified, your Empire Financial Group team will financially model out all your available cashflows, and help find extra if required, to map out how to:

  • Pay down debts
  • Save for goals, like education, holidays, or your retirement
  • Purchase new investment assets
  • Reduce any tax you may be unnecessarily wasting, and;
  • Implement a suitable estate planning strategy.

Specialist advice

While often our advice may not lead to any specific investment or product recommendations, if required, we can advise on the best way to utilise:
  • Superannuation, including GESB and Self Managed Super Funds
  • Companies and Trusts
  • Shares
  • Managed Funds
  • Cash and Bank Deposits
  • Insurance products

Empire clients have peace of mind knowing they are receiving strategic advice based solely on their circumstances. Our fee-for-service model means no compensation or commissions are paid to Empire or its staff for any investment products or services clients may take up (outside of insurance).

Ongoing financial planning support

Our ongoing service packages are based on complexity and how much time you need to spend with us, not how much money we manage for you. Packages range from annual check-ins to quarterly sessions to keep you on track.
