Founder of Online Super Advice
It's fantastic to meet you
My name is Brett Young.
I know the name doesn't quite match the face 🙂
I was born in Durban, South Africa and emigrated to Australia with my mum when I was 22 years old - more than 20 years ago - it's actually a bit longer than that but let's keep it at round figures 😉
From a young age I've had a passion for mathematics and problem solving.
After school I started a degree in Electrical Engineering which I didn't end up completing - let's say mainly due to the misadventures of youth!
My mum, who was a single parent, used whatever savings she had to give me a chance at a new life in Australia.
My three core beliefs when it comes to superannuation and retirement planning
- Asset allocation (how your super is invested) matters and is a major determinant of how your super performs over time. The name of the super fund is largely irrelevant as super funds, by and large, have access to the same underlying assets.
- Ongoing fees matter as they have a huge negative impact on your retirement savings because of the long-term nature of super. We control ongoing advice fees by providing advice online and control ongoing investment fees by choosing low cost index investments as far as possible.
- Financial advice matters. The Australian superannuation and retirement system is complex and it is easy to make costly mistakes or forego substantial opportunities to maximise your retirement savings by not seeking out licensed financial advice.
