"Over many years Liam has provided my wife and i with excellent financial advice, and helped us to grow our savings through to the retirement transition phase. He now manages our SMSF and we continue to be highly appreciative of his personable, professional style. He is unbeatable for his prompt responses to any queries, and attention to detail. "

Ian, 65+ 15 Nov 2017

"We have found Liam to be a total professional in the way he has dealt with our requirements regarding our pending retirement. With his guidance and he has us in a position that we never thought we would be able to achieve. Being a small business owner, super was never a high priority in years gone by and without Liam's in depth knowledge of all things financial we would not feel as comfortable about retirement as we do. "

Michael, 56-65 13 Oct 2017

"Thank you Liam for your dedication and professional approach to all matters. Discussion and advice are always readily available and I would not hesitate in recommending Liam's services to any interested party."

"Liam was our adviser for 13 years until we decided to retire overseas . We were sad to leave but he could no longer advise us as non-residents. We know our children are in good hands with him as their adviser and his advice/guidance on how to transfer our business premises in our SMSF to the children's accounts without selling down was just brilliant. We are happy -ex-clients who still drop in for a chat when in Oz"

"I have seen Liam quite often on Sam Henderson segment Sky News YMYC and he answers questions briefly but full of information. So went to his website and email him a question and within very short time gave the answer I had asked many others who did not know it. Excellent adviser and I look forward to keeping in contact with him and seeing again on YMYC on Thursday nights."

"Liam Shorte is amazing! We initially came across Liam when desperately trying to find an answer to a SMSF question we had during a public holiday over Easter a few years ago. His SMSF Coach website had everything we needed to make a decision and take some action on a property purchase. He has been our 'go-to-guy' for our Self Managed Super Fund and Financial Planning needs ever since. He is always thorough and prompt with his communication and I wouldn't trust our retirement planning in anyone else's hands. We recommend him to everyone!"
