Hi Matt. On the 12th Dec 16 (next pay cheque) we will have paid off the loan on our house. Several years ago we never thought that we would get to this point until I retired or we downsized. The maximium loan amount was $254k in Dec 08 and the maximum monthly interest payment was $1880pm when interest rates were 9.07% in Aug 08.
The table shows our journey since 2005. Even as recently as Dec 14 our loan was $197k. With your help and putting every spare cent into the loan (including tax refunds and bonuses) we did it. When I first looked at the numbers I set a goal of Dec 17, so it is even better to get there 12 months earlier.
It is a great feeling, and we want to say how much we thank you for giving us the direction and inspiration – we couldn’t have and wouldn’t have done it without your help.
Merry Christmas and seasons greetings
Steve and Trish
Recently my circumstances changed dramatically and I needed quality tailored financial advice to help me get back on track. I was referred to Jigsaw Financial Planning and was able to discuss and request they help me with a number of financial matters. Perhaps these were straight forward for Matt & Chris, but for mine, they had a rather large bearing on my future, so I was more anxious about the results. In the end, the advice I have received has given me some great direction and comfort that it’s not as bad as I thought. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jigsaw Financial Planning, regardless of your financial situation.
Finding the time and energy to fully understand all relevant options when trying to create a more secure future is not something I have the knowledge or qualifications to do on my own. Matthew has carefully considered my specific goals, my appetite for risk and my financial situation, and has always tailored his advice to meet my objectives. I am grateful for his care and professionalism. Knowing that my superannuation and investment portfolio is continually under his watchful eye has removed the stress and allowed me get on with work and life, which is worth a great deal to me.

I have only words of the absolute highest praise for Matthew. He makes everything incredibly easy, no fuss whatever, he has provided me with outstanding advice, not just personally, but also for my business. He is completely understanding and non-judgemental of all my requests and lack of knowledge. His customer service is excellent and very timely. I have never had to “chase him up” on anything! He is clearly an expert in his field, yet he has the patience to explain things to me in a simplistic way that I can understand and provides me with detailed reports of my finances on a regular basis, plus an incredibly detailed strategic plan annually for my financial goals in the long-term. He has my complete trust and respect and not only is he brilliant with is financial acumen and advice…. I think what I enjoy most is that he’s a really, really, lovely, personable guy with a terrific sense of humour! I cannot recommend him highly enough
My wife and I needed advice on ensuring that we had the best personal insurances in place to protect our assets and our future. We met with Matthew and Chris from Jigsaw Financial Planning to go through our current financial position and insurances that we had in place. From the initial consultation we had with Matthew and Chris we were impressed with the professional advice they presented us. We felt comfortable with discussing all aspects of our financial state and valued their feedback. Since the initial consultation they have kept in constant contact with us to ensure that we were comfortable and satisfied with the advice they had presented to us. We are now in a better position with our personal insurances from the initial consultation that we had with Matthew and Chris. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jigsaw Financial Planning to our family and friends and appreciate the work that Chris has done for us.
Our month wandering in our caravan has sadly come to an end. I wanted to let you know that all has gone smoothly with our Centrelink payments, which started whilst we were away. Also the monthly amount is coming from our super as expected. Thank-you for all you have done to make our transition to retirement so easy.

Matthew was extremely professional in all of our ongoing communication and very clear in detailing the different options and the reasoning behind the specific recommendations. The process was extremely streamlined and efficient.
Jigsaw Financial Planning have been great! They have helped me get the appropriate insurance cover for my situation and worked through all the options with patience and professionalism. I would highly recommend Jigsaw.
