We work with you

to achieve your dreams...

wealthadvice was established in 2000, following the sale of Marisa’s share in her initial financial planning practice. wealthadvice has always been a fee for service practice specialising in providing holistic financial planning and coaching advice. During the next 10 years we grew exponentially.

An opportunity arose in 2009 to re-focus the practice to key clients and services and wealthadvice has continued with a select number of clients requiring similar levels of service and advice. wealthadvice actively refers people to other quality financial planning practices if we are unable to offer the services that you require.

In 2018 we  introduced a consultancy service in financial planning, funds management, governance and investment committees.
