When you run a family business or foundation,
you’re always thinking about the future.

Everyday, you make decisions for the future of your family, your business and the legacy you’re creating. 

But often, your personal finance is an afterthought. At Stephan Independent Advisory, we believe that your family success is just as important as your business success, which is why you need a long term wealth strategy.

But there are a few questions keeping you up at night…

Am I doing the best thing for my children and my family?

How much do I really need in order to retire? 

Do I have enough wealth to look after my family, retire and live my ideal life?

Where can I turn to get some advice, accountability and feedback on my ideas?

Do I have a clear succession plan for the business?

What’s my next step and how do I get there?

When you run a family business or foundation,
you’re always thinking about the future.

We understand what it’s like running a family business.

We have spent years running our own family business passed down by our father - so we get it. It’s about more than just money. It’s about legacy, future generations and protecting your family name. 

That’s why we bring our decades of experience working with Australia’s most successful family-run businesses to your finance. Because your family success is just as important as your business success.
