Add Value to Your Client’s Lives While Adding Value to Your Business

Achieving philanthropic ideals through charitable funds is gaining momentum in Australia and effective giving is best accomplished in the context of a Financial Plan. When the giving is done with purpose, direction and systematic planning the results can be very powerful.

This type of giving plan uses a structured vehicle such as a Private Ancillary Fund (PAF), the money is accumulated in and distributed from an investment fund and the method of giving is very tax effective. When this strategic long term approach is taken there is plenty of incentive for advisers and their clients.

Why are foundations growing so quickly?

The last decade has witnessed the most rapid growth in the number and size of charitable foundations in our history because wealthy people realise of family foundations are that they:

  • Build character across the generations

  • Keep the family together over the generations like no other initiative
