At In Your Interest Financial Planning we understand that financial advice is all about people and how every person is unique and has different requirements.

Christoph Schnelle and Nicola Lessing, the independent owners of the company, set it up to be free from outside influences and live up to its name of always acting in the best interest of the client. Based in Northern NSW they have clients Australia wide.


Insurance ~ Investments ~ Superannuation ~ Retirement

  • Existing Insurance Policies – many people have insurance policies for which they are paying too much and / or are not covering them for what they think they are. Christoph Schnelle is an FPA accredited insurance expert. He offers a free review of your existing policy.
  • New Insurance Policies – life insurance is something that can be hugely supportive. Christoph is not aligned with any institution, bank or company and therefore free to find the best policy for you. He uses a range of 8 reputable tried and tested companies.
  • Insurance through Super - it is not well known that in many circumstances high quality insurance is available through Super. This can be particularly useful when cash flow is tight.
  • Investment Advice – Christoph is able to advise you on how to make money, keep it and grow it.
  • Superannuation – generally at least 9.5% of your income goes to super. It can make a big difference both financially and energetically as to which fund it goes into. Do you know exactly where your money is going or even what your current balance is or how you are set for the longer term?
  • General Financial Advice – you do not need to have money in order to see Christoph, as there are benefits in seeing a financial adviser at all points along the wealth spectrum.
