Welcome to our team, Cohen and Krass
As of 1 April 2022, we welcome the Cohen and Krass team into Financial Decisions.
We are very pleased to have acquired premium accounting and legal firm Cohen and Krass. This fulfils our long-held ambition to offer one-stop financial planning, accounting and legal services, as well as a complete Family Office solution.
Anthony established Cohen & Krass with Warren in 2002 following an illustrious accounting career that spanned over 20 years.
Anthony is passionate about supporting his clients through the various stages of their life, helping them to build wealth, protect their assets and minimise their tax along the way, as well as operate as a virtual Chief Financial Officer (CFO) when it comes to their business.
He works with his clients, offering support and advice as and when they need, whether it be setting up or running a business, estate or succession planning, retirement planning, SMSFs, wealth creation or tax issues.
Warren established Cohen & Krass with Anthony in 2002 following a career that spanned over 20 years. Warren commenced practicing as a solicitor in 1980 and became partner within five years, continuing to practice in partner and principal roles since then.
Warren is motivated by assessing situations people find puzzling and working with them through to resolution, helping them to better understand their situation as well as resolve any issues they may have.

What Our Clients Say
Our relationship with the firm is great – the personal nature, professionalism, timeliness, courteousness and good quality of service and advice. The FD business model is good. We pay a monthly fee that is predictable and transparent.
Wow – a young team with up-to-date knowledge. Our adviser is professional and knows what he’s talking about. It gives me confidence for a good future.
I’m impressed by the seriousness of their intent and the personal qualities of the team.
People buy from people and I need to like the people I buy from. With Financial Decisions, I get this. The relationship I have with my adviser is second-to-none. I am busy and therefore if I need something, Financial Decisions are very responsive. I get answers fast.
I appreciate the astuteness of the investment advice and the personalised contact.
Over the years, we have been through a number of financial planning organisations but Financial Decisions has worked for us. Our interests are at their heart, rather than them being in it for themselves.
I get good advice from Financial Decisions. They are always available and I’m not inundated with unnecessary things. They are always prompt in returning information and answering questions.
We enjoy the fact that we can actually talk to our adviser and the staff in a friendly manner. And we can understand what they are saying. The Financial Decisions team is very approachable.
Being a small organisation, I get personalised service. I like the one-stop-shop for advice, tax, estate planning – this is very important to me.
Financial Decisions tailored our portfolio so we don’t just get a standard portfolio.
We aim to exceed your expectations for personalised service, integrity and commitment to ensure the financial decisions you make are the right ones, for today and tomorrow.
We see creating and looking after your wealth as a lifelong commitment. That's why we offer regular and ongoing wealth advice and guidance throughout the different stages in your life. Together, we can build and protect the financial wealth that lets you enjoy the truly important things in your life.
