Most importantly, you’ll be receiving tailored advice designed specifically for you, which is essential if you have a complicated estate, self-managed super, overseas assets, or any kind of business.

Greater knowledge.  More effective financial strategies.  A better financial future.

That’s why high net worth Sydney residents choose Merit Planning East.

Our Services


We deliver investment strategies that help you reach your short- and long-term goals.

These strategies are developed based on your current financial position, your objectives, and your risk tolerance in order to create an optimal match between you and your investment strategy.


Protecting your wealth, lifestyle and business is as important as building it. You need to ask yourself the hard 'what if?' questions.

Merit East has access to a range of fully researched insurance products that balance protection with value for money.

Whatever your wealth protection needs, we can help provide peace of mind.


Superannuation legislation is complicated.

As specialist SMSF advisers, our ongoing professional development and technical expertise enable us to deliver best-in-class superannuation advice.

Business Succession Planning

Your business is one of your most valuable assets, but, if something happens to you or a partner, it’s vulnerable.

We can help you develop a succession plan that provides protection against unexpected circumstances.

Retirement Planning

Good planning helps create a retirement that’s both comfortable and enjoyable.

We provide you with tax-effective strategies to maximise your retirement assets and future income.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is more than just deciding upon the distribution of your assets to your beneficiaries.

Our approach considers the best way to manage those assets, how to achieve the best tax efficiency, and how your estate can be protected.

Government Benefits

When you’re ready to retire, maximising your government benefits can help provide financial security.

Our knowledge of social security legislation helps you get what you’re entitled to while still supporting your existing investments.

Retrenchment and Redundancy

Redundancy and retrenchment are often unexpected.

By offering tax-effective payout strategies, we can help you achieve the best financial outcome.

When you get to your next job, your adviser can help you make the most of your remuneration package.

Integrated Wealth Solutions

Our integrated approach to financial planning means we combine accounting and wealth management perspectives to deliver holistic solutions. We specialise in facilitating optimal outcomes – by only using well-researched products and services, we balance protection with sustainable positive performance across every aspect of your wealth.

  • Financial planning
  • Wealth creation, accumulation and protection

SMSF Advice for Greater Wealth

Self-managed super funds (SMSFs) can be a good way for high net worth Australians to manage their super.

Generally, SMSFs have several advantages over retail or industry funds, like:

  • Better flexibility
  • Broader investment options
  • Greater estate planning control
  • Superior tax efficiency
  • Overall better cost efficiency

But SMSFs are strictly regulated, hard to set up, and best suited to people with more than $200,000 in super.

That’s why specialist SMSF advisers like us can help.

With over 20 years in SMSF setup and compliance, we’ll work with you to develop a holistic SMSF strategy that maximises how your fund performs.
