Curtis provides investment and financial planning advice for retirees, pre-retirement investors, self managed superannuation fund trustees and other investors. His particular area of specialisation is direct equities for which he has had a life long passion. It is one of his favourite subjects in life. Where appropriate Curtis uses direct investment strategies to help you achieve your financial objectives because of the potential advantages of increased tax effectiveness, reduced management fees, more reliable income than from managed funds, consideration of your individual philosophies and preferences and increased investor control as compared with managed investment funds. Curtis also provides financial planning advice.
