Welcome to Synergy

Synergy is designed to simplify the investment experience and amplify your wealth. You make important decisions with your adviser:

Do I need high returns along with large potential up and down price movements or do I need lower returns with smaller potential up and down price movements? Or am I somewhere in between?

We optimise the portfolios, negotiate the costs, undertake the buying, selling and rebalancing, and give you regular reporting so you can enjoy convenience, confidence and peace of mind.

Do I want a portfolio that is socially responsible, one that makes taxes easy or one that is focused on the best risk/return outcomes.
