Arran became part of the team in 1998 and quickly became an accredited Adviser. His skills and passion for life took him abroad to the United Kingdom and then the Northern Territory, before returning to us in 2007 with a wealth of knowledge and a few stories to tell. As a passionate fitness fanatic we see Arran running or cycling into the office much more often than not. He draws on his own experiences of creating a balanced lifestyle to help people navigate their own financial and personal goals.

Trust is a big factor and we trust Craig Milroy. He's also a very good relationship manager and shows genuine care. These are soft skills but they count for a lot.
I would always be very cautious about recommending an advisor to someone else given the risks. However, I have recommended David Rule to my sister (who is now a client) and a friend of my partner's.
Trevor is always available to answer any questions I have as well as make well researched strategy suggestions for my investment. He is someone I trust fully which is very important for my peace of mind.
I am extremely happy with my David Meers' advice, attitude, communication skills and personal concerns and am happy paying him fees.
The financial advice I have received has been perfect for my situation as a retired widow. I know exactly where I stand financially and feel I can contact Arran whenever I need to.
I trust Darren Stevens to look after my financial needs and am happy to stake my reputation on his ability by recommending him to others.
Increasing value is what we do, but we also give back. A cornerstone of Much’s philosophy is supporting the communities in which we operate. We donate 10% of our after tax profit to charities.

10 ways to achieve more Muchness...
Make dollars and sense
Running out of cash is not great for anyone’s well-being! Good cash flow management ensures you always have money available to pay for expenses when they are due, and some set aside for stress-free enjoyment too. We help you get the balance right.
Borrow for tomorrow
Borrowing money shouldn’t be difficult or stressful. It should be a natural part of your overall strategy to achieve your goals. But with hundreds of borrowing options out there, which one is right for you? When your own savings need a boost, we’ll help you partner with the right lender.
Life is unpredictable, it can throw you the occasional curve ball. Do you duck for cover or stand up to bat it away with confidence? With the right insurance you can protect your wealth and build robust contingency plans for whatever life throws at you.
Mind your own business
Having your own business means you are the driver of your own destiny. Your know what it means to create your own happiness, but there are many things you probably don’t have time to think about: tax structures, insurance, succession planning, etc. We work with other professionals to get the holistic view, and then provide a secure framework for your total business success.
get rich, get wealthy!
There's much more to wealth creation than making a bunch of money. It's about being secure, and finding more time to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. We believe in adding real value to your life.
Pay what you should, and not a cent more. We know how to maximise your income through allowances, deductions, exclusions and exemptions. We help you accentuate the positive, and eliminate the negative when it comes to tax.
Talk to your investmentor
Investing in property, shares or managed funds can form an integral part of your personal financial plan. We can guide you through the maze of investment options and ensure your choices match your longterm goals.
Retirement and Superannuation
Maximise your superannuation benefits using tax-effective strategies. We can help with self-managed superannuation, contribution strategies (including spouse contributions) and life insurance options to smooth the path to retirement.
The Australian Government’s aged care system has been designed to give everyone much more choice, much more control and easier access to a full range of aged care services. We can help you take advantage of the latest changes.
The will to succeed
Passing assets to the right people at the right time requires astute planning. With your solicitor we can develop strategies to suit you and your family, and ultimately create opportunities for your beneficiaries to minimise taxation and protect assets.
Even though we have seen the introduction of increasingly sophisticated technologies into our everyday lives on a continual basis throughout our lifetime, it is still difficult to picture how this will impact our lives in the future. It is impossible to know exactly what will happen in the future, however understanding the power of compound returns will help us to appreciate the impact advancing technologies will have Read More.

I believe in the hidden power of muchness. I believe it when I watch my daughter play and see an utterly innocent joy come across her. I believe it when I see her experience new things and an unrepressed sense of wonder lights up in her eyes. I see that muchness in each new and exciting facial expression and each playful giggle she creates. But mostly I see it in the curiosity in her heart. Read More

Why is money important to you? This is a question I think we should all ask ourselves on a regular basis. Is it because you want to buy nice things? So you can create a certain way of life? Perhaps it is a matter of status or simply because we have been taught we need it, whatever the reason is it is important to acknowledge it.
What do some of the experts say? Read More
David Rule | July 2015
The challenge of balancing a fulfilling life, a successful career and a happy family can be hard, and at times, it feels like something has to give, and it does, but I have found that putting on hold one part of my crucial three doesn’t mean I have to give it away forever.... Read More
