Here’s what our clients have to say about us!

Changing our clients’ lives for the better is our top priority at Best Interest Advice. Our glowing testimonials below, speak for themselves.

I would just like to say a huge thank you for what you have achieved with my superannuation portfolio.  I met Russell in 2006/7 whilst working at an oil company in Melbourne.  I had moved with my husband to Melbourne from New Zealand in 2004, and this was the first time I had heard of superannuation, it was only then being introduced in NZ.

In 2007 I told Russell what my super balance was, and he looked clearly surprised, I was 43 years old and had very little in my fund  (I think around $20k).  I transferred my super to Russell to manage and implemented salary sacrificing as much as I could, so that by 2015 my super was significant, I am happy to say that as a woman my super balance is exceptional, I have trusted Russell in all his advice and the proof is in the results.  In February this year I caught up with Russell and the results were astonishing, and then COVID, I honestly never looked because I did not want to as what was the point, but with Russell’s guidance and advice my super has continued to perform.

My husband transferred his super to Russell in 2018 and the results have been exceptional, he is nearly matching mine, and for someone who earned substantially more than me, and was salary sacrificing his balance in 2018 was less than mine till he moved to Financial Choice.

Would I recommend Russell, absolutely, I will drink a toast to you Russell in my old age when that happens, which we hope is no time soon.


We switched our super to in November 2012 after many years with large Retail Super funds. We were looking for an organization that would allow us more control over our super, and had talked with advisors from several large Industry and Retail funds over recent years


but none could offer us the flexibility we were looking for. A friend recommended who helped us set short and long-term goals based on our risk profiles. We particularly liked the flexibility of the service offering which allowed as little or as much involvement in share and cash allocation as we were comfortable with. We were also very impressed with the personalized service and responsiveness provided by the team who managed all aspects of the setting up of our SMSF, the rollover from our existing funds, and our transition to retirement. The team continue to provide exemplary personalized service in administering our fund. We also like their weekly investment updates, including the global outlook podcasts from Chris Watling and his team at Longview Economics. We’ve been able to exceed our funds short-term goals, and feel confident that, with ongoing guidance from, our fund will continue to grow and provide us with a comfortable retirement. Following our recommendations, two of our friends have also joined, and we recommend anyone considering a SMSF to check them out.
