David Henriksen

Partner

David is unlike any other accountant you may have met and that is because he is not just another accountant – he is a Financial Adviser, self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) Adviser, Tax Adviser, Registered Tax Agent and a Superannuation Partner. His broad knowledge and qualifications and dedication to the areas of financial wealth advisory and SMSF means that he finds solutions to your problems that your average adviser won’t find.

David is passionate, he genuinely cares and he always works with integrity. What this means for his clients is that they can have confidence that when working with David, the solution that is suggested has their best interests at the heart. This might mean that a growth strategy isn’t as aggressive for one person as it is for another or it might mean that more risk is recommended for one person than another. The key, according to David, is that he looks at the whole person and their whole of life plans and goals, then structures their personal wealth, assets and debt to fit, ensuring that their wealth is protected and that they have the right expertise beside them as they go through different life stages. He stands by his motto, simplify your life, have fun and don’t pay more than you should.

David has a diverse client-base from well-known celebrities and politicians to C-suite professionals and small to medium business owners.

Recent examples of work include:
  • Tax effective investment of client wealth across multiple structures (SMSF, Corporate, Trusts) and implementation of financial planning strategies that extract optimal after tax outcomes for clients.
