Bruce Baynes

Bruce Baynes

Dip FP, Accredited Aged Care Adviser
Director, Aged Care Specialist

Aged care advice is nothing short of a passion for Bruce. When his own family faced the struggles of his father entering aged care, Bruce knew there was a need for more help to be available to others facing the daunting financial aspects of aged care. We love seeing his excitement when he comes up with a particularly great solution for clients and he is passionate when advocating for our clients’ best interests.

With over twenty years of experience in providing financial advice, our clients often comment on the empathy and understanding offered by Bruce in addition to his excellent skills in aged care funding.

Rae Hill

Rae Hill


Rae joined our team with previous experience in administration and reception roles. She is very efficient and organised, however being kind and helpful is her speciality. Her role involves manning the phones, keeping the office in order and the advisers in line - Rae is a busy and valued member of our team.

Bringing a warmth to the office, she is our own “Rae” of sunshine! While she is off the clock, Rae loves music, drawing, shopping and heading to the beach.
