Plan, Action & Review
While you may have had your financial plan in place for a little while now, it is always a good idea to review things to ensure it all remains current and appropriate. Legislation and economic conditions can change quickly and it's best to be on top of it all. Call us for a review today.
SUPERANNUATION & CONTRIBUTIONS
We want to make sure that your superannuation is working as hard as you are. Outside your income or family home, your superannuation may be your biggest investment so it's important to get it right.
RETIREMENT PLANNING & PENSIONS
Living a comfortable life in retirement and retiring as early as possible is a goal of many and we can help to develop a plan to build your assets for retirement as well as mapping out how to use your funds in retirement so they'll last.
DEBT MANAGEMENT, INVESTMENT & CASH FLOW ADVICE
You work hard to earn your income so you should ensure that it's working its hardest for you. We assist with strategies and plans to reduce debt and save for the things that mean the most to you.
Making sure that your finances can weather life's road bumps is an integral part of any financial plan. With many people earning over $2 million in wages over their lifetime, protecting this asset is essential.
Dealing with Government bodies or Aged Care facilities can be confusing and time consuming. We can assist to ensure that you are in the best financial position possible given all the options available to you.
Financial planning involves developing comprehensive, effective strategies to strengthen your financial security and ensure you meet your financial goals.

My name is Matt and I'm the senior financial adviser at Cargill Financial. I started here in 2009 and I have extensive experience in providing advice across a wide range of areas, including superannuation, retirement planning and personal insurance.
I believe it is my role to understand what is important to you and to tailor strategies to meet your objectives.
In my spare time I enjoy playing competitive tennis and supporting the Bombers.
I'm Brodie and I started at Cargill's in 2017 but I've been working in the financial planning industry since 2000.
I love helping clients hit their financial goals, whether that is retirement, home ownership or just better money management. I have a technical and compliance focus and want to ensure our clients understand their strategies so they will stick to them.
I love travelling but with 2 kids, it's not too often. We recently went on a fantastic big family trip to Disneyworld in Florida after 9 years of saving.

I have had insurance (life,TPD and trauma) through Cargill for about 7 years and I was questioning if it was this worth it. After speaking with Matt, I decided yes it was. This year I had a heart attack.
The way Cargill handled the claim was ABOVE AND BEYOND! They actually cared! Can not speak highly enough of both Matt and Brodie
Deidre is our resident review organiser so you've probably already spoken to her or received her emails.
She organises all things client review, from the client meetings with Matt, to the documents he has prepared. She really is an all-rounder as Deidre also helps with office administration.
She's here if you need anything admin but don't confuse her with her identical twin, Briony, who works on reception with Cargill & Associates on the accounting side.
Steve has extensive office experience and is picking up things very easily.
Steve will be helping out with administration tasks. You'll probably be getting emails or phone calls from him to follow up on outstanding items or giving you an update on your investments and insurances.
Steve has 3 kids and is an avid North Melbourne supporter. He has lived in Sydney and Singapore but has come back home to Melbourne to support his beloved football team and so his children can attend school here.
We, at Cargill's, not only want to make sure that you're on track to reaching your financial goals but also that you understand the strategies and legislation that you are using to get you there. Our monthly emails educate readers with simple and easy to digest articles relating to financial planning matters that may affect you. From helping out your kids, to understanding the types and need for personal insurance or even just tips on savings plans or building super, there's something for everyone.
