The people behind Heading Forward Financial Planning

Heading Forward Financial Planning is a family-owned, boutique financial planning practice based in the beachside suburb of Glenelg North. After many years working as a financial planner within a large financial services organisation, Director and Senior Financial Planner, Peter Heading, started Heading Forward Financial Planning in 2015 to ensure he could continue to provide his own down-to-earth, personalised style his clients had come to love, free from the confines of sales driven big businesses. Peter’s aim is to ensure his company can provide the superannuation and retirement advice many Australians are looking for but aren’t sure where to find it.


Heading Forward Financial Planning is there to provide you with the strategies and peace of mind to enable you to feel confident about your retirement. Whether it’s planning for, or guiding you through your retirement, from the moment you first speak with us, we are certain you will agree that Heading Forward Financial Planning is the right direction for your financial future!

Peter has worked in a range of financial services roles for several market leading organisations for over 30 years. Since becoming a financial planner in 2007, Peter has striven to ensure his down-to-earth and plain English approach to clients is matched with the highest level of technical capabilities. Peter was one of the first in Australia to obtain a Masters in Financial Planning and has since achieved Certified Financial Planner® status and is a member of the Financial Planning Association of Australia.


We are all busy people and time poor these days, however Peter will help you through the many financial obstacles life presents. By using his experience and knowledge in superannuation, retirement income products, investments and social security, Peter will make things seem simple and achievable.  


Peter gets most of his compliments from his ability to take complicated and technical concepts and make them understandable. It is this philosophy that lead to Peter setting up his own financial planning business to ensure this same consistent approach would be provided to each and every client.
