Knowledge and Experience
Advice SA was founded by Mark Bastiaans CFP, one of South Australia’s most experienced superannuation specialist financial advisers. Established on a foundation of integrity, honesty and transparency, what you see is what you get at Advice SA. There are no ongoing service agreements or fine print, just straightforward strategic financial advice that will help you achieve what you want out of life.
Protect, maximise, and grow
At Advice SA, everything we do revolves around you. We work with you to understand what you want out of life, and provide you straightforward, honest and easy to understand financial advice to help you achieve it. If something is broken, we will help you fix it, and if it’s not, we will help you maximise it.
We’re not compromised by the company we represent, or the products we sell. We focus on your needs, and provide advice that cuts through the jargon and sets you on the road to financial independence.
Every piece of advice is tailored to your individual situation. We take the time to explain what we’re doing, and why we’re doing it. It’s your money, and you’ve worked hard to earn it, so you deserve to understand the advice we’re providing.
Mark Bastiaans is an Authorised Representative #296627 of Guideway Financial Services Pty Ltd ABN 46 156 498 538 AFSL 420367.
Your first meeting with your Financial Planner that leads to personal advice will not attract a fee.
Where personal advice is not required, the cost for Financial Counselling and Education appointnets is $330 per hour.
The purpose of this meeting is for you to learn more about how your adviser operates and for your adviser to determine how they may best help you. At the conclusion of the first meeting you will be provided with a Client Service Agreement containing the fixed price quote to provide the financial advice based on the hours of work required.
Mark is an excellent communicator. All of my meetings with Mark have been by video conference, but Mark has bridged that potential barrier easily giving me a sense of confidence in Mark's understanding of my situation and needs. He is very approachable and a good listener. I appreciate his knowledge and sound advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark to any of my friends or family.
Mark was recommended to me by several friends who he has been advising for some time.
My wife and I have found him to be very accessible, proactive with his advice and clear in his explanations.
His advice has been precise and tailored to our individual and combined needs.
He is very approachable and has given us increased confidence in managing our finances.
Mark has always been easy to contact by text, email, and phone. I found that he would get back to you quite quickly when contacted with the necessary paperwork that was required for us to sign for our self managed super fund. He also helped us with us with getting our Commonwealth health card as well. He even helped us out with my daughters home loan for a better deal with the bank. I have found Mark very approachable with any questions that we needed to find out and we would be more than happy to recommend Mark to our family and friends for his services.
From our initial meeting and understanding what I was looking for, Mark was able to make it all happen.
Mark was friendly and down to earth in nature, easy to understand and was able to answer all our questions and doubts. He provided a very easy to understand and descriptive report, which made our decision easy and put us into a comfortable head space, removing all our concerns and giving us full confidence for our future. All in all Mark is very knowledgeable in his area and very approachable. No question or call is silly, he is more than happy to talk to you and explain any concern, and willing to help you move in the right direction and give you all the advice you need.
