Lets get you on the road to Financial Security

Saving and investing is all about one thing - making your money work for you. And getting a decent return on your savings with tax efficiency is proving difficult these days.

Our team at Affinity Financial Planning has over 70 years of experience in assisting clients with their investments. Whether you would prefer to save your hard earned cash or invest it for quicker growth, we can help you achieve your goals.

Should you Save or Invest?

Depending on your circumstances, you may want to save or invest. On average, investing is more profitable than saving. However, the risk of investing means that this is not guaranteed and if the timing is off, or you make the wrong choice, you could end up with less than you started with.

This is why many of our clients are low-risk or risk-averse investors. The downside is that they have saved for many years but have poor returns to show for it.

Affinity specialise in constructing low risk investment portfolios. We achieve this by measuring your risk rating and your capacity for loss and then decide what shape to construct your portfolio.
