Inspiring Change For A Brighter Financial Future

Hudson Financial Planning has been providing trusted and professional advice since 1992. Our vision was to educate as many people as possible about their financial journey. Over the years we have matured into a full-service financial planning firm, offering our clients the ability to take care of all of their financial needs in one place. Our core focus of empowering everyday Australians to make educated decisions has not changed.

We are committed to what’s best for your finances, not products or organisations

Hudson holds its own Australian Financial Services License through ASIC, which allows us to choose which investment and insurance products we support in-house. This differs from most financial planners that pay a licensing fee to a dealer group such as AMP or IOOF to “piggy-back” their license. Those advisers are bound to the products and rules/restrictions of that organisation.

We were built for the year 2020, but we started 28 years ago!

Our team provides individual plans and ongoing management to approximately 3,000 clients around Australia. Our appointments have been predominantly conducted over the phone or via Zoom way before it was practical and necessary.

Hudson’s investment philosophy is to help our Hudson family to make educated and informed decisions about their finances. We want to inspire you to make small changes that will make a huge difference to your financial future and we want to keep you from steering from your path.

Hudson Tour

The Hudson Process

Your Initial Enquiry

We want to know a little more about you and what you want to achieve, whether that be a Financial Plan, borrowing money to buy your first property (perhaps your second or third) or discussing your Superannuation.

Once we know a little more about your situation we can then discuss some options to work towards. You just have to take that first step.

Your First Contact

Once you take that first step, Matt Paul (link here) will contact you to arrange a time to talk to one of our advisers. This will be a general consultation to determine if we are able to help in any way. A personal financial profile may be required at this stage. This is the start of your future financial security and we are excited to be on this journey with you.
