Our Retiremeant Story

At Chartered Wealth Solutions our passion is all about helping people to Retire Successfully. We see retirement as a new beginning.

Welcome to Chartered Wealth Solutions


Our passion is holistic financial planning to get the most meaning from your money.

Life is unpredictable, and navigating the waters of finance and investing can be daunting. At Chartered Wealth Solutions, we understand this better than most. That’s why we take a personal approach to financial planning, focused on helping you chart a course that aligns with your unique journey.

Whether you’re going through a planned or unexpected transition, we believe that every beginning is an opportunity to achieve your unfulfilled dreams and goals, on your terms and in your own time. Our team of 27 CFP® professionals is committed to creating a holistic financial plan that is tailored to your needs and objectives. This approach is not just about the numbers and charts – it’s about helping you get the most meaning from your money.

We believe that your money and your life are intertwined. That’s why our motto is “Planning with Purpose.” We work with you to purposefully plan a life that is both rich and meaningful, enabled by your money. As an independent, privately owned company, our Financial Planning Specialists are salaried, which means they can focus on your objectives without bias or prejudice. This allows them to create a unique and personalised Plan designed to help you achieve your goals.

We are pioneers and thought leaders in the retirement sector and our Retiremeant™ process, where we work with you to create a holistic financial plan tailored to your life and retirement goals, helping you transition from a successful career to a fulfilling Retiremeant™.

We invite you to start your journey with us by coming in for a conversation.

Warm regards,
John

What our clients have to say


“I have been dealing with Chartered Wealth Solutions since 2012, so for the past eleven years. They mainly handled my financial and retirement planning prior to me retiring in 2019, and they continue to handle my financial planning now that I am retired. Although some people can possibly do this themselves, it has been great dealing with Chartered, as they do this stuff all the time and have people and systems in place to analyse and keep track of everything and to assist with investments and ensuring that one does not live beyond one’s means. The people at Chartered are professional and friendly and we feel like an extended family.”
“Chartered also assisted with the drawing up of my will, which is reviewed annually and updated when circumstances require. They have the original will and my family knows to contact them if something happened to me.”
“I joined Chartered Wealth about 5 years ago and have been very pleased with the performance of my financial portfolio. They not only run my investments but have given me very professional advice on my retirement and estate planning, including the Tax implications. I would highly recommend Chartered for a completely holistic approach to your financial life.”
“Elaine and I both knew a Financial Advisor by the name of Patrick Madden in our previous lives, Elaine from her previous employment and me from dealing with him in the industry. Patrick became a friend and when he joined Chartered he took her portfolio with him. As I was a Financial Planner myself I managed my own investments, until I left the Industry. We decided to put all our business under one roof after realising that Chartered could provide a fantastic service that catered for all our needs in a very professional way through our current advisor Tom Brukman. We are happy to be part of the Chartered Family.”
“My experience with Don Adams & The Chartered Wealth Team in PE has been wonderful. Very professional, helpful, friendly and scenarios fully clarified. I came away feeling that my best interests had been taken care of and financial plans optimized to the full. I have every confidence in their advice and highly recommend them should one be considering a retirement plan.”
“Holistic, warm, welcoming and available. Multifaceted services under one roof. Excellent service!”
“My experience with Don Adams & The Chartered Wealth Team in PE has been wonderful. Very professional, helpful, and friendly and scenarios were fully clarified. I came away feeling that my best interests had been taken care of and financial plans optimised to the full. I have every confidence in their advice and highly recommend them should one be considering a retirement plan.”
“With just over 5 years to my contractual retirement date, I wanted to get a clear understanding of what my retirement savings were going to be able to provide. My wife and I followed an incredible journey, discovering what our retirement could look like. Hope is not a great strategy for retirement – Chartered Wealth helped us get a very clear understanding of our journey and how we need to balance future contributions, required return and match these with expected costs once we no longer continue to earn income from employment.”
“It was a superb decision to entrust our finances to Chartered Wealth Solutions, from our first meetings where we discussed retirement, to advice on investments and discussion of budgets. We have an exceptional financial advisor who, with her team, provides professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, well-founded, efficient and friendly advice all the time.”
“Great service, advice and planning. Wonderful team to work with and highly recommended.”
“We have never regretted putting our future in the hands of Chartered Wealth Solutions. They have always been very friendly, courteous, and professional in our association with them. Any issues, queries and requests have always been dealt with in their usual efficient, friendly and professional manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to have their investments in the hands of competent professionals.”
“I have trusted my finances and retirement planning to Chartered since they started, and now I also appreciate the professional tax, medical and legacy solutions. The Chartered family are available, attentive, affable and offers all-round exceptional services.”
“Professional, caring, attention to detail, always willing to chat, and the whole process of going through our finances and planning for retirement was so detailed and carefully thought out – we have never experienced any service like this before! We feel like family now!”
“Chartered impressed me with their holistic approach. They firstly do a proper analysis of your assets and situation, then find out what you want and help you decide where you are heading, financially and mentally, after retirement, then help you in planning ahead, suggesting ways to manage your money, how and where to invest and then do yearly meetings to keep you updated on your portfolio and get your feedback to keep them updated with your situation. Their personal contact strategy works well, and their talks and co-retiree info seminars forces you to meet other people in similar situations.”
“I joined Character Wealth just over a year ago. Very pleased with the professional service and advice that I receive. Very proactive, and Craig Harrison is always available to assist. Look forward to the newsletters that keep one informed about events and market and financial trends.”
“Excellent and very professional company to deal with.”
“Best thing we could have done! A recent experience of someone passing on without a Will was a BIG eye-opener with the problems it resulted in. Thank goodness for the Legacy Folder, an absolute blessing. It is not always the big things in life but the small ones as well. Many of our friends followed us to join Chartered and just as happy. CW has “chartered” my life for me, provisioning for all my needs and resulting in a great retirement without any monetary worries. It is also great to hear of other friends who have joined Chartered Wealth. Wishing CW the very best for the future; what you have done, you have done it right!”
“In 2007, our policies were about to mature, and our broker recommended Chartered Wealth Solutions. Since then, we have been extremely satisfied with their professional services and advice. We highly recommend them to family and friends and truly appreciate our valued relationship with their dedicated staff over the years.”
