As a business owner, we believe you not only want to grow your business but you also want to grow your wealth and protect your assets. Financial planning is central to the wealth creation process and we work with a network of financial planning groups so you have access to a number of financial planners.
Financial planning involves formulating a strategy tailored specifically to your financial needs and takes into account your current financial resources, age, lifestyle, investment experience, risk profile and investment time horizon. It is a journey and in the early years when borrowings are high, spending must be carefully planned. In the accumulation years we see debt levels diminish and savings capacity increase. Finally, in the retirement years you reap the dividends from the careful planning in the previous phases.
The need for quality financial advice has never been greater. Evolving financial markets means more investment alternatives and greater complexity. You need an experienced financial planner that offers quality advice and service to secure and build your financial future. Through our network of financial planners you have access to these services and we work with them to help you achieve the most tax effective solution.
The financial planning process involves a series of meetings and discussions where the financial planners take you carefully through each step of the process:
- Initial Meeting
- Fact Finding (Information Gathering)
- Preparation of a Financial Plan (Statement of Advice)
- Meeting to Discuss the Financial Plan
- Plan Implementation
Commitment to your financial security goes well beyond the initial financial plan. It is important not to ‘set and forget’ so as your needs and circumstances change, they adjust the original strategic recommendations to accommodate the changes in your life. In consultation with you, they will regularly review the performance of your investments and make recommendations based on current trends, changes in laws and your personal circumstances. The frequency of the periodic reviews will be agreed with you depending on your particular needs.
