About DG Institute

Our company helps and empowers every day Australians to grow and protect their wealth. Our mission is to create a fairer and more accessible and affordable legal system so that there are no barriers to access justice and knowledge.

Rockefeller once famously said that the secret to true wealth was to “own nothing and control everything.” We effect this for you in respect of your current assets and wealth without having to change over ownership of anything. It is like an invisible force field we build around you and your wealth to protect you in accordance with your instructions. It is totally within your control and there are no changeover costs or restructuring required.

Master Wealth Control is for life. Every time your position changes, you let us know and we will update everything and make sure that you are constantly protected at any point in time. This all operates to protect your wealth during your lifetime and then we set you up so that when you are gone, your wealth is protected for your beneficiaries.
