Jake was excellent to deal with, he is extremely knowledgeable and I could not ask for a better service. Jake analysed and compared each of the available policies relevant to my situation and explained the pros and cons of each option in detail. Jake also handled the process from start to finish, I cannot recommend Jake highly enough for all your financial needs.

Carl gave advice to my wife and me about life and income protection insurance. I am confident that Carl gave me the best advice such that we have been able to choose the right insurance products. He was very helpful throughout the application process and was always available to help explain all of the detail that we needed to know and advise on what was best for us in our situation. Thanks Carl!

Jake has provided a tremendous level of checks to my existing circumstances, and further effort to find the most suited market product, all in a very approachable and communicable manner.

Young Professional

Carl has been very helpful in sorting my financial affairs in a more organised way and one that I have direct access to online and can check anytime. He is always available and helpful and goes out of his way to explain things clearly to me as I sometimes find financial situations difficult to grasp. He is happy to answer any question I have and doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable at asking ‘silly’ questions. He was recommended to me through a friend and I have already recommended him to a family member.

Jake was introduced to us via a common network and I could not speak highly enough of Jake’s professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness. Not only did Jake provide us with guidance around what we initially requested a consultation for (Insurances), he also provided valuable insight into many other areas that we had not considered beforehand. I would have no issues in recommending any family or friends to Jake’s services.


Carl has been giving me financial advice for the past 3 years now and I have to say, “I would be lost without him”. Carl has gone out of his way to help me when needed and takes the time to explain things clearly, so I understand what decisions to make. I look forward for the years to come.

Jake’s passion and expertise helped me feel confident to take the steps necessary to commit to changing my financial future to reached goals carved out through thoughtful conversations.


We were looking for a financial planner to advise us in setting up a retirement plan that would help us to facilitate a more profitable outcome while we were both still working. By talking to Carl, we were able to consolidate personal and superannuation funds, make the most out of salary sacrificing and expand on our opportunities by investing cash at a higher interest rate with the knowledge that the investment was both steady returns and transparent. We chose Freshwater Financial Planning to advise us and are very happy with his friendly and dedicated approach to finding us the best possible strategies with our portfolio of funds that provide us both with peace of mind and security in our retirement.

We would highly recommend Freshwater Financial Planning for all your financial requirements, especially where commitment and dedication are guaranteed to provide the best possible outcome.

We feel confident that the advice he has given will ensure future security. Jake is always happy to be contacted and listen attentively. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends.


Jake has been assisting me with my financial planning and insurances for a number of years now. He is very thorough in his approach which gives me confidence that the advice I am receiving is genuinely in my best interest. Extremely knowledgeable and a great guy to top it off. Would definitely recommend, 10/10.
