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 personable, attentive and friendly. He engages authentically and offers sound advice in line with my goals and values. Extremely trustworthy.
Choosing Mark at Advice SA was an excellent decision. We always felt that Mark had the time to discuss matters with us and never felt that we were being rushed. Because of his extensive knowledge, he made us feel very comfortable with our decision to retire. He took all of the hard work out of the complex paperwork and administration with government and superannuation organisations. The trust we have in his experience on how to best invest our superannuation and savings has made us extremeley confident with our financial choices.
Mark clearly understood our financial position and goals and targeted his planning advice appropriately. The plan he provided was clear and comprehensive and was in line with our expectations. Mark was always professional and was careful not to over service us. We are very happy with process he followed and the advice provided.
Right from our first meeting Mark understood our goals and put together a meaningful and relevant plan.
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.
