Retirement Planning Financial Services at RSM Australia
What is retirement planning?
Retirement planning is the proactive steps you take to make sure you can live the lifestyle you aspire to when you retire.
Whether you plan to retire early at 40, or well into your 60s, it’s never too early or too late to start planning for retirement.
In fact, the moment you receive your first superannuation contribution is the moment you should consider getting advice on how to maximise your return and minimise your risk over the long term.
- How close you are to your ideal retirement age generally determines the types of investment strategies you might use.
For example, when you are young you may wish to investigate higher risk investments that have the potential to deliver a higher long-term return.
Later in life, you may consider medium risk investments while keeping a close eye on how they are doing so you can change your strategy as the financial landscape changes.

How do I live my dream retirement?
The key to being able to retire when you want, and live the way you want, is to make sure you will have enough sustainable cash flow, ideally from more than one source. This includes money for:
- Weekly living expenses
- Debts (if you have them)
- Luxuries and capital expenditures
The total amount you save – regardless of whether it is dispersed across cash, shares, property, and so on – needs to last as many years beyond the age you plan to live this lifestyle. Many people think achieving their dream retirement is impossible – especially if they have only started thinking about it later in life.
However, our retirement planning specialists have helped people who didn’t think they were close to retirement develop a strategy that allowed them to retire much sooner than they expected.
