Arthur Panagis

Financial Planning – Adelaide – SA

Hi, I am Arthur Panagis, founder and director of FMG Wealth Strategists. “One of the most rewarding aspects of financial planning in Adelaide is delivering strategic and tailored financial advice. And above all,working collaboratively with our clients”.

It is about developing and building YOUR goals and objectives and then watching them come to fruition.

Giving our clients a real sense of financial achievement and self empowerment when they have reached their goals is why we exist. You may have heard of this saying? I am sure you have heard of it. ‘Are we there yet?’ And when we can together ‘say YES!’ – there is a wonderful feeling of true satisfaction and joy for us and our client.

“I believe all Australians deserve the opportunity to create wealth to achieve the things in life that are important to them. We aim to achieve this through superior professional knowledge and service coupled with an intimate understanding of client goals and values”.

There has never been a better time to start and achieve a financial plan.

This might be a good time to tell you a little bit about my background. I started as small business owner over 30 years ago, when my wife owned a hair and beauty salon here in Adelaide. My role was to take care of all the back office operations whilst I was working as an accountant in the corporate arena.

I grew up on a fruit orchard in Renmark of the Riverland. Small business was engrained early in life. Coordinating the picking, cutting and packing of our produce for the markets. Reflecting back now, I more enjoyed the business side, dealing with the suppliers and packaging companies. Together with the fruit agents, banks and accountants. Whilst my friends were skiing on the river Murray and playing basketball and cricket during our summer holidays, I was working on the fruit orchard which had me very busy as a teenager.

Many years later, after moving to Adelaide my wife and I started our own small business. Within 12 months, in the late 80’s interest rates had reached an all time high and my parents walked off their fruit property as the bank foreclosed.  For many years I carried this around as baggage. I felt a sense of guilt that I could or should have done more, as eldest of three children, to avoid this. Then in the early mid 2000’s my wife convinced me to do a course which by the end of it made me decide to turn this baggage into jet fuel.

Purpose

From this point on, I understood my calling/purpose. It was to assist and empower other small business owners with not only my 15 years accounting experience but to add to that financial advice and strategies. Above all, to make sure what happened to my parents didn’t happen again, especially under my watch.

So, I got to work, studying after hours to attain my financial Licence. After 3 years, working (most of that time) at one of the top 10 AMP financial practices in the country, I founded FMG Wealth Strategists – financial planning Adelaide.

Looking back now, I don’t think I chose to work in this space, I honestly think it chose me. As such, I am prepared to spend the rest of my working life dedicated to providing advice and strategies to both individuals and small business owners so they too, can work towards living their dreams — financially free.

Whether it is for your wealth protection, (through both personal and business insurances). Or, your wealth creation and expansion through diversified investments (whether inside outside super). Or, those looking to purchase their own business premises within a self managed super fund, we are here to help you achieve your financial goals.

Education

We also feel we have an obligation to educate you on wealth creation which includes the right mind set. Cutting edge research in the area of epigenetics and neuroplasticity is showing us how much our mind can influence our surroundings and our results.

Let’s use the black belt analogy in relation to education and mastery. Over 15 years now I have been involved in the martial art of taekwondo including 6 years as an instructor.
White belt represents the beginning – the novice stage, working to become an expert (blackbelt). At this stage, achieving a good degree of proficiency of the art. From there mastery is a series of achievements. It also indicates the endless universe where development of technique is limitless. Financial Mastery is no different in this ever changing and evolving world!
