Our friends recommended Direct Wealth to us through their own experience of dealing with them.

We contacted Direct Wealth and our financial advisor was Sam Dwight. Upon meeting Sam we immediately felt relaxed and comfortable with his advice.

We found Sam to be very professional, caring and knowledgeable to assist us with our retirement and superannuation goals. He was always available and quickly responded to any questions or concerns we had.
We would highly recommend Direct Wealth and Sam Dwight.

my wife and myself were introduced to Ben Marlow of Direct Wealth for a discussion on looking after our superannuation & pension requirements. I was a little doubtful at first as the fund i was with was performing ok for me. Ben gave us his background on financial planning and we had a second meeting with Ben. After this meeting my wife and myself decided to let Direct Wealth look after our finances. We could not be more pleased with our switch to Direct Wealth as the team there are so helpful and keeping us informed on our financial matters. I would recommend to anyone Direct Wealth for looking after their financial planning.
Russell & I met with Erin just recently. We find Erin very easy to talk to and she listens to us to give us the best advise. We are now in our next stage of life and Erin has provided us with excellent advise on how to move forward so we can enjoy our retirement without any worry. We cant recommend Erin highly enough for anybody looking for Financial Guidance.
Direct Wealth team were patient, knowledgeable and made financial planning understandable . Excellent customer service .
Had my first meeting with Greg and Simon today.
Very professional and answered all my questions with the exact details I was looking for in a financial team.
Other companies beat around the bush.
Really friendly and down to earth team.
This is my 3rd meeting this week with a advisory firm.
Should have just contacted them first
I highly recommend speaking with Erin if you’re seeking a Financial Advisor. She is knowledgeable, an excellent communicator and honest. She listened to my circumstances and tailored a plan to my needs.
My wife and I found direct wealth excellent to work with and we would highly recommend them for any financial needs whatsoever. A special mention to Kirsty who did everything for us and made the whole process very simple and Jasmine in the office who very efficient in sending all our paperwork and ensuring we were aware of each process.
Natalie, has given me exceptional support and service. I could not have done it without her. She has always been a ph call away, and nothing is to much bother. I am so grateful her advice and knowledge when it comes to finances. Thank you Natalie.
Erin is very approachable and patient. She took time to understand our goals and built a customised plan for us. She walked us through it in a way that was easy to understand and allowed us to move forward at our pace.
Natalie is always available to help Sherry and I with accurate and timely support when ever we need help. Over the last couple of years it has been very trying for us with dealing with all the red tape with our personal issues and Natalie has always been caring, supportive and a great support to us one that we could not have continued without and we both thank her and the team from the bottom of our hearts.
Thanks Richard 😀
As a new client of Direct Wealth, I have been very impressed with Ben and the time he has taken to understand my changing financial situation and to work a best solution for me for the present and into the future.
Ben from Direct Wealth went above and beyond in handling my wife prior to her passing
I have met with Ben in several occasions since Linda’s passing and I could not be more grateful and impressed with Bens handling of the Estate of my wife’s financial affairs
I met with Ben today 09/01/2024 and I have no other words to explain how Bens work in preparing my wife’s affairs to be transferred as noted within the wishes of my dearly departed wife of over 50 years together Bens work ethics and delivery is extremely professional
My partner and I have recommended Erin to family and friends. We highly recommend her for her financial planning services. If you have been thinking about a financial planning service, make the call. We wish we had done it sooner!

Erin is authentic, knowledgeable and personable. The entire Direct Wealth team have been incredible to deal with during the process. Erin takes the time to ensure we are well-informed so we feel empowered in our decision making around our wealth management and financial planning. We feel so prepared for our financial future and it’s exciting!
Working with Erin from Direct Wealth, I can’t speak more highly. Erin is extremely knowledgeable and informative with a fantastic demeanour – not bothered by all of my questions. I originally went to look at investment advice and options, but Erin has gone the extra mile and provided additional financial wellbeing enhancements which I’m excited about! Feels like I’m in good hands and excited to work with Erin and the Direct Wealth team.
We came to Lyle at Direct Wealth not knowing where our next financial step in life would go. With Lyle’s help, we are now looking forward to a comfortable retirement. He is very knowledgeable, and we highly recommend Lyle at Direct Wealth.
Kirsty has recently taken over my superannuation account and I’m very impressed with the service I have received since coming across. I feel very comfortable with Kirsty, I trust her and she has provided open and honest advice. I think Kirsty is a shining star, shows consideration of my needs and is very easy going.

“Many thanks to the team at Direct Wealth for keeping us on track with regards to our financial goals.

They have been managing our financial affairs for many years now and we would not be in the great position that we are in, going into retirement, without their ongoing expert advice and successful strategies to maximise wealth.

Highly recommended!

Frequently Asked Questions

Rarely does someone come to us wanting to build wealth and never touch it!

Our clients usually have financial goals that are connected to life goals – our main purpose is to figure out what kind of life you want to live and work with you to make your ideal a reality.

By asking questions and discussing what you want to achieve with your life, we’ll bring to light what working with a financial advisor is like, how our process works, and how we’ll help you get to where you want to be.

The goal is to give you everything you need so you can make an informed decision about whether or not working with us is the best option for you.   

Then, we begin to establish, protect and grow your wealth. We make sure everything stays on track and your finances continue to work hard for you throughout the years.

The best part? Your financial plan isn’t about scarcity, forced savings, and not having fun. We’ll build all the freedom you want into your plan while keeping your end result in focus. 

With our support, you can enjoy continuing confidence and peace of mind from knowing that you’re on track. We’ll also be here to support you when things don’t quite go to plan – because that’s life! 

Our clients tell us feeling comfortable about retirement is mainly about knowing “Can I retire when I want and have enough for long enough?!”

“Enough” is different for everyone and can change over time. We can also influence “Enough” by proactively suggesting strategies to not only maximise the years leading into your retirement, but the decades prior to this, so you aren’t left wanting with no time to act.

We complete and provide you with detailed financial projections, giving insight into what kind of life you can expect to live. We make sure there is enough to last so that you don’t fall short, while creating options if there is a gap.

All of this is provided in a way to balance the life you want to live tomorrow without sacrificing the life you want today.

Typically, financial planners love to show portfolio reports and take inventory of your current assets and liabilities, with little discussion as to how this actually impacts your life for better or worse.

Our focus is on providing regular progress updates to you celebrate your successes, make course corrections if things have changed or aren’t important to you now, and proactively review your financial products and strategies.

All of this is to provide you a sense of working towards an outcome rather than just talking about it, while recognising just how far you’ve come along the way.

We don’t like to be too ostentatious with our claims, but we do offer a highly competitive option for those who need an honest, genuine and truly supportive financial advisor in Brisbane.

Of course, the quality of our service shows is reflected in the results. 

We strive to provide our clients with nothing but the best, and we believe that shows through in the real feedback that we receive (which you can see above) and our numerous industry awards.

We also have a high client retention rate, so we must be doing something right!
