Rando & Associates are a full financial planning business who look after young clients, all the way up to those who wish to retire tomorrow. The company celebrated their 13th birthday on Monday April 9.
What are your biggest challenges?
Mark – who has been in the industry for 18 years – has seen legislative and operative changes, as well as changes in the way clients spend and save their money, which presents big challenges.
“We’re also finding that a lot of businesses are underinsured,” Mark said.
“They don’t put a value on directors and key personnel. The issue of losing quality people and income if something happens - I don’t know if that’s taken into consideration.”
What have been your biggest highlights in the past year?
“We’ve just come off winning a National Award from our Licensee of Practice of the Year,” Mark said.
“We have in the past been a finalist for the Telstra Small Business Awards as well. But this year we’re very excited about moving back into our renovated premises, so we can’t wait to get back to where we need to be, at 19 Forrest Avenue. It’s an awesome facility.”
What do TNE do for you?
“We’ve been with TNE for seven years now.
“With our everyday communications, TNE keep our machines organised, up to date and running. The storage of our data has been a key part of our relationship with TNE. They take care of the day to day operations of maintaining the equipment, so we’re keeping up with what we need to do, we’re not having breakdowns, and we are always operational.
“I’ve been overseas a number of times where things have gone wrong, and I haven’t been able to access our system. One morning I texted Ash about 4am here and it was fixed. They’ve been awesome.”
