The idea that financial planning advice is only relevant for a few very wealthy people is a common misunderstanding. Working with an Independent Financial Adviser at key times of your life can have a beneficial impact on your financial wellbeing. That saying, “we don’t plan to fail, but we fail to plan”, has never been more relevant.
Remember that financial planning is unique to your circumstances. Acting now can help you live the life you want to lead.
Here are some of the key areas that we can help you with-
Buying a home
A mortgage is often the biggest and most important financial commitment of your life.
Our team of experienced mortgage advisers are here to help you every step of the way. We can help you work out your budget to see how much you can afford to spend on your mortgage. We will look at all the mortgages available and recommend the best deal for you.
Starting a family
Our financial planners can help adapt to your changing circumstances. This may be looking at savings for your children’s future or reviewing health and life protection policies to see that they meet your new circumstances.
Investing for your future
A financial planner will help you set your financial objectives over the short, medium and long term. They will help you to understand your attitude to investment risk and help you plan accordingly to ensure you meet your financial goals.
Going through a divorce
To start with, going through a divorce is never easy. Your financial planner will help you understand how your financial position may change. You must understand how your circumstances may change so that you obtain a fair financial settlement. Furthermore, your adviser will help you plan your new financial life going forward.
The passing away of a loved one.
After a bereavement, there is likely to be changes in your financial situation. Your financial planner can help you understand what choice you have going forward and help to resolve any immediate issues.
Coming up to retirement
Over the years our expectation for retirement may change. Your financial planner can help you build up a retirement pot in a tax-efficient way. Making a few adjustments now can have a major impact on what your retirement will look like.
Maintaining your family wealth
Passing your wealth onto the next generation is usually high on most peoples lists. A financial planner will help you move your wealth onto the next generation in a tax-efficient way while ensuring that you have enough money to uphold your financial security in later life.
