We develop client relationships built primarily on trust and successful outcomes that last a lifetime and create a legacy. We also have a lot of fun along the way!

Starting Out

You have a 'real' job, you're settling down, getting married, buying your first home or perhaps starting a family. This is an exciting time however, there is a lot at stake so it is important to consider your finances and put a plan in place for yourself and your family.

Half Way

Your weekends are now gone on kids' sports and activities or driving them from one commitment to the next. This is the time to think about providing a comfortable lifestyle for your family in the future.


You now have both eyes on the prize - how and when you can retire! You probably want to spend more time with your adult children and possibly grandchildren. You are at the peak of your earning power, so a plan is vital at this stage.

  • Adam King
    From a very friendly welcoming at the front desk, right through to a highly educational consultation with Chris, our experience with the Fortress team was nothing short of fantastic. A very thorough pre-questionnaire enabled our face to face consultation time to be individually tailored to our needs and wants, and we left with a very clear plan going forward to help secure our immediate and long-term financial future . Highly recommended.

  • Roger Cavanagh
    Chris Black is a financial adviser who is truly interested in our needs, circumstances and goals. A strong attribute of Chris is the way he took the time to get a feeling for the position we were presently in and carefully charted a plan to match and achieve what we wanted. It is refreshing to engage with a professional with a careful, common sense approach and at the same time be able to articulate his ideas in an easy to understand way. The whole Fortress Team works hard to create a professional, ethical and caring atmosphere, making dealings pleasant while earning our trust and respect. We strongly recommend Fortress Financial services and believe that they have played a significant role in building and maintaining our financial position.

  • Melissa Sweedman Leadbetter
    2 years ago my husband and I met with Chris and sorted out our insurances should the unthinkable happen. SO lucky that we did as my husband was diagnosed with cancer in August and hasn't been able to work since. If it wasn't for Chris putting all insurances in place we simply wouldn't have been able to live and pay our bills. The team at Fortress have been so helpful in many ways cannot recommend them enough. Thank you!!!
