About Us - Our Business and our Staff

Reid McGill

Reid McGill is one of a growing number of financial planning business that have decided that it is important to be self licensed and capable of providing advice without the influence of an institutional owner or partner. 

This results in our advice being objective with a focus on client solutions not products. As our interests are aligned with our clients, not an institutional owner.

We are based in northern New South Wales and have offices in Tweed Heads and Varsity Lakes and have been in business for over 10 years. 

As a business our goal is to build long term relationships with our clients to assist them throughout their lives. With an emphasis on service and maintaining a close understanding of every clients unique situation, goals and dreams, we have limited ourselves to a maximum of 75 clients.

Presently the business looks after 55 families, who live throughout Australia as well as some clients now living overseas.

If this sounds like the personal service you would appreciate we would love to talk to you.
