Excellent information.

published

Cameron and Michelle were very professional and helpful. They provided clear information and made sure that I understood the type of service I was using and they also made sure that they understood what I wanted from my products with regards to investment options. Thank you for taking care of the things that I don't necessarily have the expertise to manage myself.

Aggressive cold callers

published

Cold called me. I am with Australian Super so at first I thought I was talking to my own super fund. When I realised it was a cold call that may take some time and they were asking me personal details I let them know I was at work and busy. I asked if they could send me some info about their company and gave an alternate time for them to ring me and that is when the caller became pushy, then aggressive then dismissive as I kept asserting that I could not continue the conversation at that time. Of course he called the next day at the alternate time I had given him (before he became aggressive). I did not answer and blocked all calls.

Pushy Phone Sales

published

Answered mobile at work as it looked a familiar number and copped sales rep Ben.
After politely letting him know how busy I was, he wouldn’t listen and became very persistent & smart mouthed.
Take no for an answer ! He obviously just interested in a commission and not my best interest. I wonder If this is accepted culture and reflects the organisation’s core values?

Terrible

published

The advice received would have stripped thousands of dollars from my super every year.
My personalised Statement of Advice was filled with buzz words and grossly misleading information.
Complaints to management were met with smug and dismissive responses.
They should be ashamed. How do these people sleep at night?
Hang up the phone now and your hard-earned retirement savings will be hundreds of thousands of dollars ahead compared to Superannuation Advice Australia.

Very Fishy!

I got cold called twice and they knew my name the first time I hung up the second time I asked who they worked for and they said the government. Then they booked a meeting for me the next day and sent a text confirmation 9 hours later in the middle of the night. which is how I realised they were [Content Removed].[Content Removed]

I won't be taking any more calls.

Cold called. Feels very dodgy

published

Got a call from a random Australian mobile number that probed me with yes and no questions about Super. Upon answering, without requesting any follow up, they arranged a call for the next day where they wanted to do a review of my super. When I asked about why they were calling and where they got my details from they got very defensive and acted like they weren't the ones calling.

Deal with this company and get a nasty surprise

published

If this company calls you, hang up. they take 4% of your superannuation balance as an implementation fee upfront and then 2% every year after. and the super fund you roll over to will let them. Do not give them any personal details and DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING, especially a digital signature. rolling over your super is free and takes a few minutes over the phone with your own super fund, do not be duped into letting them do it for you. you will regret it.

They are Super Bad

published

They were calling my wife and making her believe they are from her super fund company.

Calling every day twice with only purpose of making her switch her super are creating confusion. I was not able to sort out when they send there site address and when they ask her which state do you live.

This is super bad.

Hi Teresa, you are 100% correct. The exact fee depends on each individual’s situation, but there is a fee outline in our Financial Services Guide, which covers what we charge fees for, who we are and how we provide advice. You can click the link at the bottom of this message, and it will take you to the online version on our website. Having said that, before a client joins, we always prepare a personalised Statement of Advice. This outlines all fees, what the advice is, how we arrived at this tailored strategy, and what the benefits would be. That way, you get to make a fully informed decision before joining Superannuation Advice Australia. Thank you for your question, The SAA Team

How long will my Super of $250,000 last, moderately defensive & drawing $30,000 a year

1 answer
Superannuation Advice Australia
Louise C.Superannuation Advice Australia

Hi RLynne, our Advice Team is excellent at preparing these projections, but to ensure accuracy, we would need a bit more information about your personal situation. Current investment returns for moderately defensive strategies are very close to the inflation rate in Australia of around 3%. As such, investing the suggested sum in moderately defensive assets only, it is likely the funds would be exhausted in under 10 years. Thank you for your question, The SAA Team
