Welcome to Cunningham
At Cunningham Mutual, we believe that people that work in high performing organizations are constantly challenged with balancing commitments to their career and their personal lives.
The constant need to make good financial decisions is clouded by time pressure and a lack of expert assistance when you need it.
People often put the needs of others ahead of themselves and leave little time to get their personal financial lives in order.
At Cunningham Mutual, we solve this problem. We give you the framework and assistance to make the right decisions that suit your life, and we execute the decisions to ensure you get back to doing the things that are important to you.
We understand the complex and intricate issues that you face, including investment advice, optimal tax structuring, share offers, remuneration packaging, effective debt and leverage arrangements, cash flow forecasting, integrated family advice and estate planning.
Our services are designed to suit people with demanding financial needs that require sophisticated and broad advice. The truth is that this can be at almost any end of your career spectrum from the first time you become entitled to a bonus through to your election to the board of directors.
We work closely with you in creating a comprehensive financial strategy.
The basis of the financial strategy statement is that we have come to believe that some things in the arena of financial advice are truths worth recognizing.
• Truth on your current position. Get a solid view of just what you are really worth and what investment assets you have accumulated. Is your balance sheet balanced?
• Truth on your future contribution to wealth. Your ability to generate income, your human capital, is the most powerful influence you have over your wealth.
• Truth on the market contribution to wealth. It's not as powerful as you think.
• Truth on the use of wealth in retirement. People don't spend their capital; they modify or reduce their lifestyle.
• Truth about your appetite for risk. You need to assess your risk profile and its impact on your balance sheet.
• Truth that retirement is something that happens to everyone. Whether you have sufficient assets to enjoy that chapter of life, or not, is what you need to address early. But the truth is it happens.
These aren’t just words.
Each word is chosen because together they describe how we work. Everything we do is personally connected to your unique world. Starting with your personal financial position and objectives, we work with you to establish the financial disciplines that are the drivers of true wealth. Taking into account your individual circumstances and your unique goals, we design a comprehensive financial plan – a personal blueprint – that will guide us as we secure your financial position now and build your future wealth. The key to our success as your Personal Financial Architect is in how we work with you to plan and construct your wealth. Your happiness does not come from the financial roof over your head; it comes from the sound foundation that it stands on.
