Home Medicine Services
Food Delivery
Social Media

During this challenging time, it’s important to maintain social connections, eat healthy foods to maintain strong immunity and check in with loved ones or elders in your community. Here are some handy online services to help make this period a little easier. 

Home Medicine Services are available for people in isolation that have their Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme and Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme prescriptions delivered to their home from their regular pharmacy. Click here for more information. 

Food Delivery – If you jump onto the website of your favourite restaurant or café you will notice many are offering unique takeaway, home delivery or drive through options. It’s a great way to avoid contact with others, make life easier for you in the home, and also support the local businesses doing it tough. 

Social Media can be a great tool for maintaining social connections as they help connect you with friends and loved ones. Platforms like Facebook and Instagram enable you to share daily photos, updates and videos. YouTube is another great resource for online tutorial videos, educational tools to assist with home schooling and don’t forget the fabulous cooking tutorials to help pass the time.  

Online programs and resources to help you stay Healthy and Happy

Slide
“How will I measure the value or success of receiving financial advice?”

We believe the true value of financial advice isn’t found in dollars and cents (although this is important too!) but in the peace of mind a financial plan can provide. It’s knowing where you want to go and how to get there, with a dedicated team behind you every step of the way.

Slide
“How do I know Evalesco is the right fit for me?”

We know the impact of good holistic financial advice can make and we have the life experience, technical capability and quality support team that can make that difference for you. We’ve empowered over 1000 families through the delivery of great financial advice, to be healthy, wealthy and happy.

Slide
“How do I know how much money I will need to retire?”

The amount of super you’ll need when you retire depends on your big costs in retirement and the lifestyle you want. The Associate of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) estimates for a single $44,224 a year and for couples $62,562 a year is how much you may need. This is only an indicator and our advisers assess everyone’s individual circumstances.

Slide
“Why should I pay for financial advice?”

The fees we charge for financial advice is only a fraction of the value we derive for our clients, meaning our clients are always better off after seeing us. Rarely do we encounter a new client invested appropriately for their needs, with adequate risk protection, structuring and estate planning provisions in place. Even small tweaks to a financial plan over a long period of time can result in drastically better outcomes for our clients which eclipses the fees of the financial advice. Additionally, you can opt-out of an ongoing fee arrangement at any time.

Slide
“How do you charge for your services?”

In our discovery meeting with you our advisers discuss the initial advice fee and the ongoing fees associated with our services.

Slide
“What is the process for getting our own personal financial plan?”

After our initial phone call to discuss why you are seeking a financial adviser, we arrange a discovery meeting that outlines what is important to you, your current position, our areas of advice, our approach. We then present a Statement of Advice (SoA) to discuss your goals and our recommendations and go through the steps of how to proceed to the implementation stage. After signing the SoA, we discuss your questions, get you to sign the authority to proceed and complete any application forms before implementing the recommendations detailed in the SoA.

Slide
“Should I pay more off my mortgage or put more money into super?”

One thing to consider is the interest rate on your home loan in comparison to the rate of return on your super fund. Before making a decision, it’s also important to weigh up your stage in life, particularly your age and your appetite for risk. Whatever strategy you choose you’ll need to regularly review your options if you’re making regular voluntary super contributions or extra mortgage repayments. As bank interest rates move and markets fluctuate, the strategy you choose today may be different from the one that is right for you in the future
