Traditional financial planning organisations often have little idea about the unique needs of a client who has suffered a serious injury.

  • Winner of the 2011 National Value of Advice Award - Ability One is a wealth management and life planning firm focused on providing specialist services to people with high support needs such as planning following a personal injury settlement.
  • Ability One has proven expertise in advising and dealing with people with special lifestyle requirements; complex financial needs; and high living costs such as personal care arising as a result of a significant disability or aging.
  • Ability One provide expertise in investment; superannuation; tax minimisation; lifestyle and care planning.
  • Ability One offers a life planning support division in conjunction with financial planning.  Ability One employ an RN for this purpose.
