07 Mar Creating a financial roadmap
Planning for success can be complicated in today’s world
No two people have identical financial circumstances, which is why it’s essential you have a custom financial planning solution that meets your individual needs and goals. Planning for financial success can be complicated in today’s world. A broad knowledge of everything from complex retirement and investment products to risk management strategies and tax laws is required.
Your financial roadmap should provide you with clarity about your future. It should detail every aspect of your vision – your hopes, fears and goals. It should also describe exactly how your future will look and help you to know exactly where you are headed and when you are likely to arrive.
Take some time and ask yourself these questions:
Can I sleep comfortably knowing I’ll have enough money for my future?
Do I have the security of knowing where I’m heading financially?
Am I going to be able to maintain my current lifestyle once I stop working?
Do I feel empowered financially to live the life I want today and tomorrow?
Have I made sufficient financial plans to live the life I want and not run out of money?
Do I have a complete understanding of my financial position?
What is ‘my number’ to make my current and future lifestyle secure?
Understanding ‘your number’
Part of this process is to understand ‘your number’ – in other words, the amount of money you’ll ultimately need to ensure complete peace of mind in knowing your future lifestyle is secure and making sure you don’t run out of money before you run out of life.
By getting to know you and what you want to achieve, we’ll be able to provide you with a detailed action plan that is focused on you. Using a holistic financial planning process, we can get a clear view of your current lifestyle and the life you want to live.
Initially, you need to create a financial roadmap which enables you to make the right financial choices and get the balance right between current responsibilities and future aspirations. All of this should be designed in a way so that you can achieve your desired lifestyle goals and objectives reliably over time.
