DMFS Financial Advisers is a personal services investment, superannuation and retirement planning business. According to Money Management, 67% of financial advisers do not believe client’s parents, DHS and aged care is an issue they are required to service. We believe that we can either assist with a client’s needs, or have the resources to refer to someone that can. Retirement planning is a focus of the firm, along with aged care and superannuation (40+ age bracket), which are all closely related (family related).
