SuperGuide is Australia’s leading website on superannuation and retirement planning, with more than 4.5 million visits per year, and more than 30,000 newsletter subscribers.
This website, www.superguide.com.au, is a website for consumers dedicated to superannuation and retirement planning in Australia.
I started this website with Robert Barnes because I passionately believe that Australians are entitled to quality and up-to-date information about something as important as financial security, and retirement. Although I have written many books on superannuation which are sometimes referred to on SuperGuide, I also understand that not everyone has the time to read books.
Increasingly, Australians require a straightforward online reference about superannuation, retirement planning and the Age Pension. For this reason, over the past decade we have developed SuperGuide into a comprehensive, easy-to-read and easy-to-use information resource for all Australians.
I also hold the view that many financial organisations and licensed individuals charge for providing information and flogging products as if it is ‘advice’. Advice is important and can help you create wealth over the long-term, but educating yourself about superannuation and other financial matters can protect you from bad, biased or insufficient advice.
I am very proud of this website and I hope you find SuperGuide helpful. After all, SuperGuide has been created for you.
