About Bridges 

At Bridges, we believe financial advice makes a difference.

For over 30 years our Financial Planners have been helping Australians plan for their future and achieve their goals. Our clients are at the heart of everything we do — our advice covers a broad spectrum of financial planning and investment services to help our clients achieve their financial goals.

We are committed to providing clients with professional, ongoing advice and service. With 175 years of expertise behind us as part of the Insignia Financial Group, Bridges was founded to help guide working families — something that’s still at the heart of what we do today. Feedback from our clients tells us that we are helping them feel more confident about their money and they develop a greater sense of financial wellbeing.

About Insignia Financial 

You may have once known our parent company as IOOF or MLC. Two Australian financial institutions, each with a story that began generations ago. In 2021, IOOF Holdings acquired MLC (including  MLC Advice) and underwent a brand refresh to better align to our vision. We are now Insignia Financial Ltd and are one of Australia’s leading wealth managers as well as a top 200 company on the ASX with ~2 million clients. You can read more about Insignia Financial on their website.

Bridges Financial Services is the financial planning arm of Insignia Financial and whilst there have been acquisitions, name changes and brand refreshes along the way, our advice, our purpose and our commitment to our clients has not waivered.

So, how can we work with you on your journey to a brighter financial future?

Bridges and The Smith Family

Bridges has a long-standing partnership with The Smith Family, a national children’s education charity. In 2016 – 2020 Bridges provided significant financial support towards The Smith Family’s financial literacy program, which helped many young Australians to make more informed financial decisions.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on the community and the way education was delivered for a few years, our support shifted to the sponsorship of high school students via the Learning for Life program, providing financial support for school essentials like uniforms, books and additional learning programs.

In 2023, our financial sponsorship was once again directed towards a school financial literacy program. This program helps students build knowledge, understanding and confidence when it comes to making important financial decisions. We have also participated in non-monetary volunteering opportunities with students in recent years which has been hugely rewarding.

Let's talk

When it comes to your goals, it helps to talk about them, think about them, and, most importantly, dream a little. Start a conversation with Bridges today.
