Kuda Wealth – Life Events Tool
Superannuation is a tax-effective vehicle to build adequate resources to meet your desired lifestyle in retirement. Kuda Wealth will work with you to determine your ultimate retirement goals, assess your contribution capacity, make recommendations for maximising your investment growth based on your investor risk tolerance and help you steer the ship toward your ideal retirement destination.> Read More
Superannuation is designed to supplement the Australian social security system and ensure that you have an adequate source of income during retirement. Superannuation comes in many forms; industry funds, retail funds, wholesale funds or self-managed super funds, to name a few.

Our investment universe is diverse and under continued research to ensure we maximise progress toward your goals whilst taking appropriate measures towards managing downside risk.> Read More
For many clients, the investment timeframe associated with accessing superannuation may be too restrictive and you may be reluctant to lock away savings you’d prefer to use prior to preservation age.
Kuda Wealth takes the time to understand our client’s investment goals, desired timeframes and attitude towards investment risk in order to build a comprehensive investment strategy, taking into account tax implications, diversification, liquidity, fees and risk management to determine a range of solutions designed to achieve the best outcome.
Market volatility is inevitable when investing in growth assets and close monitoring of the markets is an integral element of a successful portfolio. At Kuda Wealth, we understand the challenge this presents for most investors and we accept this responsibility on your behalf, ensuring we uncover new opportunities and investment headwinds, recommending any changes necessary to steer you through market volatility.
Our strategies centre on liquidity, transparency and diversification. We believe in holding quality assets and not over-reacting to short-term market fluctuations; instead we apply only carefully considered changes to ensure you remain on track to meet your financial goals.

They say that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes.
You’ve worked hard to accumulate the assets that form part of your estate and grow your wealth tax-effectively; the last thing you want is for these assets to transfer upon your death with unnecessary tax consequences.> Read More
At Kuda Wealth, we take the steps necessary to reduce the impact of both occurring at the same time.

It is very easy to overlook financial considerations when running a business. Regardless of whether you are involved in a business as a sole trader or via a partnership, company or trust, every business owner will eventually exit their business.> Read More
For some this is through a methodical hand over or a retirement plan; for others it could be through unforeseen circumstances such as premature death or disability.
Most business owners are aware that they must address these issues, however statistics indicate that very few do. This oversight is rarely intentional; it is usually the result of not knowing how to begin or simply being preoccupied with the day-to-day responsibilities of running a business.
At Kuda Wealth we take the time to understand your business, what is important to you and others associated with ensuring the continued success of your business, your competitors, your life goals and what you would like to happen to your business in the event of your retirement or unexpected departure through death or illness.
Where appropriate, we can assist you with the following strategies to help you prepare for these eventualities:
Remember, it is much easier to plan your exit ahead of time, rather than dealing with the situation after the fact!
