Founded in 2015 and located on bustling Main St Mornington, SMART Financial Planning is the financial planning division of the highly regarded accounting firm SMART Business Solutions.
This means that all of our advisers are also accountants too. Cool huh? By having an accounting and tax background, our advisers focus on strategies that benefit you in the long run. We look at what you need right now, as well as looking further ahead into the future to ensure that we develop a working strategy that suits your needs perfectly.
For those of you who have worked with us before, you know how dedicated we are when it comes to our clients. We go the extra mile, ensuring we are proactive rather than reactive. We believe this is the pivotal difference when it comes to our advice and teaming with us as your trusted adviser. Haven’t had the chance to work with us yet? That’s ok. We look forward to getting the opportunity to exceed your expectations!
Shannon Smit leads the team and has undertaken many ventures both with personal investments and business. You can rest assured that you are working with people who will take the time to understand your goals and objectives. Shannon has been recognised for her technical expertise with her appointment to the Australian Governments Board of Taxation Advisory Panel, and she practices what she preaches having undertaken a commercial office development (The SMART offices!) with her SMSF, residential property investments, direct shares and managed funds! So when Shannon advises, she also has the 'been there, done that, got the t-shirt' experience.
Like in great leaders, a support network is key. Shannon has an amazing team behind her who together work tirelessly to guarantee that the wheels on the bus keep spinning and ensure that you’re always on the front foot. Come take a visit to our offices and experience the culture of our office. No challenge is too big for these guys to handle.
We focus on SMSF strategy and structuring advice, financial reviews, insurance and superannuation product recommendations and strategy*. This means that whether you’re looking at putting a commercial property into super or wanting to understand if your investment and insurance products are suitable, we can help!
