Our Story

Essential Wealth and Retirement is a professional fee for service financial planning business and is owned and operated by Adam Vermillion and Brent Raverty, former Senior Financial Planners at the National Australia Bank. We strive to simplify your financial options to ensure that you, as a client, feel comfortable about your present and your future. We do not believe in the concept of “getting rich quick”, although this would be nice, rather we recognise that getting the most out of your finances takes time and, in order to achieve the best results whilst appropriately minimising risk, involves a range of structures and strategies tailored to your individual circumstances and requirements.

We commit to working in partnership with you, and by sharing our experience and expertise, we can walk with you through all aspects of your financial life. Whether you have just started to think about building your wealth; looking to provide financial security for you and your family; beginning to plan for your retirement or endeavouring to protect your retirement lifestyle, we can assist you. At Essential Wealth and Retirement, we recognise that everyone’s situations and goals are unique, which is why we personally tailor your financial solutions to your circumstances. We believe that financial advice should not be complicated, therefore we provide simple, clear and straightforward advice in partnership with our clients. Not only do we make use of our experience and expertise in current financial climates, we are future focused, in order to assist you to build your financial security for decades to come.
