Brad and Janet approach your financial planning practice for some advice. The couple is aged in their 40’s and expects to work until they turn 65 years of age, but would like to be in a position to be able to retire at age 60. The couple owns some investments held outside of superannuation as well as some superannuation accounts.

Personal details: Janet is aged 44 (DOB 01/01/1975). Brad is aged 50 (DOB 03/04/1969). They met at university and have been married for 13 years.

Brad is a self-employed surveyor and earns a net profit before tax and before any superannuation contributions of $190,000. Janet is a social worker in a large national welfare agency and earns a salary of $66,000 plus a 9.5% SG contribution. Brad does not currently salary sacrifice any benefit although he has been thinking about organizing something for some time but has never got around to it.

Janet and Brad have 2 children – May aged 11 (Grade 6) and Hamish aged 7 (Grade 2). Brad and Janet believe that May and Hamish will be financially dependent until they graduate from university. May and Hamish attend a private school at a cost of $20,000 per year per child (this is due to rise with inflation, but should not increase by more than that).

Risk profile

You speak to the couple about asset allocation and risk and return and ask the couple a number of questions to ascertain their likely risk profile. Whilst the couple are not comfortable with taking on a lot of risk, they are aware of the need to maximise their retirement savings and accept they will need to take on more risk. Brad does have some experience and knowledge of investing and understands the relationship between risk and return. Both believe that minimising tax and keeping pace with inflation are important considerations with their investments. After discussions with the client, they accept that around 70% of their portfolio should be invested in growth investments.
