The Peter Vickers Business Group was founded in 1979 by Peter Vickers – a core strength from day one was accounting. In order to satisfy the needs of our clients we have grown to provide a comprehensive range of financial services. We provide these services to a broad range of clients, across a diverse range of industries and professions, both in Australia and overseas.
Our Investment Services team is a professional provider of financial planning. We seek to maximise our clients’ wealth through sound financial advice, tailored to individual needs and risk comfort.
Our approach is to focus on the long term financial goals of our clients, providing a detailed plan on how to achieve those goals. We do this by accessing a diverse range of investment and insurance solutions and offering ongoing advice on how to manage these investments to ensure maximum results.
Advice – why we’re different
Many financial planning firms are owned either by an insurance company or a bank who then distribute their own products. At Peter Vickers Investment Services this is not the case – we are not owned or controlled by a financial institution, we only act for our clients.
Additionally, our financial advisors benefit from being part of a group that provide taxation and accounting advice. This means the financial plans we construct for our clients take into account the important taxation impact of the investment strategies recommended.
Our Services include:
financial planning and advice
tax effective wealth accumulation
regular savings plans
investment and tax planning
Investment Portfolio Design
The process we use at Peter Vickers Investment Services is designed to achieve a balance between individual expectations for return as well as tolerance for investment risk. Any investment product we recommend must have a proven track record and a strong outlook for growth based upon key investment fundamentals.
We provide expert advice on all aspect of superannuation from public offer superannuation funds through to advice, set up, auditing and administration of Self Managed Super Funds.
From a simple investment property purchase through to a complex commercial property syndicate, we provide you with timely and detailed advice whether in:
Listed Property Trusts
Direct Property Investments
To ensure that our clients and their families are financially protected in the event of serious illness, injury or death, we will accurately determine the level of cover required and then source competitive premiums from solid insurance companies.
Direct Share Investments
For clients who prefer direct shares to managed funds, we provide detailed analysis on a leading range of high performing Australian equities across a diverse range of industries.
How we work and what you can expect
We work as a team at Peter Vickers Business Group which means that the advice and recommendations given by our financial advisors will also have been considered from both a taxation and accounting perspective.
Recommendation of financial products will be given only after a comprehensive analysis of your needs, expectations and risk profile has been undertaken.
You will be given a full explanation of the potential outcomes of our recommendations in addition to all the costs involved in implementation.
We will communicate regularly on the performance of your investments and provide timely and on-going advice as needed.
