David has empowered us on many levels, we always walk away from our appointments feeling up lifted and positive about our direction and our future!

Jason & DI

I first went to see David Loughnan from Elements Financial Planning on a no fee consultation to have a chat. After talking with David I knew he was the right person to handle our affairs and point us in the right direction. Although I consider ourselves as a small player I have been in contact with him on many occasions  he has also initiated many call to check on us. On things David has put into play for us he has saved us his fees three times over this year alone.

We can not recommend David highly enough as he turned our finances and lives around.

Thank you Harry & Sandra

As self-funded retirees my husband always enjoyed handling our finances and he did it well. However his health deteriorated so l handed the task to David of Elements Financial Planning and I am glad I did. He recommended slight adjustments to our portfolio and explained clearly each step to me which he assures me will see me to a ripe old age.


I was previously insured through the guidance of another financial planner until I had to make a claim. The claims process with my previous planner was more painful than the injury itself! Since making the change to David who was refereed to me through an associate of both of ours, I have had to undertake a number of claims. All of which have been stress free.David found problems with my current insurance setup and has also now insured me properly. I feel confident that the Insurance he has recommended, he has done so for my own benefit rather than his own financial reward.Whilst I hope that you never have to call him when in a crisis, like I did. But if you do, David is the man.
