Jennie Lynn is a Chartered Accountant with extensive experience in superannuation, particularly self-managed superannuation funds. Having previously been involved in management reporting and financial planning, Jennie settled into the specialisation of superannuation well before the changes turned superannuation inside out in 2007 and then again in 2017. The knowledge she has accumulated over this time period has provided her great experience to provide comprehensive advice in this area. The Government just can’t help tinkering with superannuation.

In addition to being an SMSF Specialist Chartered Accountant, Jennie is a Certified Financial Planner and can provide advice on superannuation including wealth building contribution strategies, establishment of SMSFs, account-based pensions and borrowing in superannuation. Financial advice services are provided under the limited AFSL operated by Brookside Accountants (#485237).

Jennie is an accomplished and experienced presenter and has educated and informed accounting groups and clients on the complexities of superannuation. Her clients appreciate her ability to break down the complicated jargon into simple terminology.
