Enjoy the fruits of your labour.

We provide financial advice, solutions and partnership to help you succeed.

Educators and the administrators that work along with them are among some of the hardest working in any society, but there may be a force working against them.

High financial stress levels can lead to an increase in.

  • Absenteeism: Financially-stressed employees use more sick leave and are absent from work more often.
  • Presenteeism: Although employees may be physically at work, when they are suffering from financial stress they are distracted and cannot focus properly on the job in hand. They may also have to spend time sorting out their financial problems whilst at work.
  • Health concerns: Unhealthy workers who are working below par cannot function so efficiently at work. They are more likely to put off dealing with healthcare issues and then incur higher health costs, which impacts both the employee and the employer. Worry over financial matters can lead to irritability, anger, mood swings, fatigue and sleeplessness, all of which have an effect on their performance in the workplace.
  • Work conflicts: Lateness, incomplete work tasks and accidents can all occur when workers’ personal financial problems interfere with their job performance.

Our Workplace Financial Wellness Program helps those involved in educating the next generation manage both stress and money, keeping them satisfied and productive at work.

Why is Vanilla the better choice?

ADVICE YOU CAN TRUST

We are independent financial advisers 

Reaching your financial goals is a process. It's important, therefore, to work with an adviser who is not focused on selling you a product, but genuinely loves helping you achieve your goals and aspirations. Our first and only allegiance is to our clients. We are not employed by any financial institution such a bank, credit union or insurance company. We’re committed to looking after your best interests and we will take the time to listen first then advise you using plain and simple language.

SOLUTIONS THAT WORK

Success comes from what you do and how you feel as a result. 

We provide a refreshing alternative to the product-focused approach taken by most financial advisers. Instead, we focus on your specific needs and what you want to accomplish. The better we understand your situation and your goals, the better your plan will fit your lifestyle, budget and philosophy. The better it fits, the better you will feel as you work toward your goals.

PARTNERSHIP FOR YOUR SUCCESS

We offer a genuine long term relationship.

We work with our clients throughout their lives. As part of our ongoing relationship, we'll regularly review your financial arrangements and plan for what's ahead. We want to ensure that the financial decisions that you've made, the products and services that you use and your overall plan remains appropriate. So as situations arise, circumstances or goals change, we will be there to help make the necessary adjustments to allow you to succeed.
