If you are an Australian national currently living in Switzerland, considering relocating here, or are planning a return to Australia, find out what we can do for you below


We benefit from having our in-house Head of Australian Advisory Operations, who herself has come from Australia to Switzerland and is the primary contact for all of our Australian Expatriate clients at Blackden Financial.  We are therefore well positioned to provide this specialist advice service that offers tailored solutions aimed at keeping costs down, investment performance up and ensuring our clients receive trusted, qualified and regulated advice.

With our partners in Sydney, Australia, our clients profit from an end-to-end solution should they decide to return to Australia at any point in the future. This removes any uncertainty about your financial future upon your return.

It can be problematic to take continued advice from any Adviser Firm in Australia, or any previous country of residence in fact, as you may lose out on potentially significant financial opportunities open to you for the following:

  1. Tax Efficiency by way of using Swiss or EU investment options specifically tailored for an Australian expatriate
  2. Tax limitations and alternative strategies
  3. High quality local investment management options
Our Australian expatriate service is seldom offered elsewhere. With endless potential, get in touch for an initial, no-cost meeting today.

    When it comes to retirement, your superannuation fund may be the most valuable asset you own, besides your home. Despite this, it is often overlooked or underutilised. It is important that for every year you are accumulating wealth, you are maximizing the potential for tax efficiency. There is complex legislation relating to superannuation in Australia, which extends to personal reporting obligations, such as whether it is necessary to declare this in Switzerland. It is therefore vital to do all you can to find out how best to make the most out of all available opportunities. 

    Retirement income can come from sources other than your pension. A plethora of other investment vehicles can contribute to your financial security in retirement. Many such alternative investments are tax-efficient in their own way too. It is also crucial to review and monitor your existing pension funds.

    We take the time to first understand your existing investments, financial situation and objectives for the short, medium and longer term. We then analyse how all your existing investments have performed and how well they match your objectives, including your risk parameters. We can then make our financial planning and investment recommendations to you.


    Established in Switzerland in 2003, Blackden Financial offers independent financial planning advice to international clients and their families.

    This is achieved through our international links from here in Geneva, Switzerland, along with our EU, UK and Australian partners.

    The result is:
