The main advantages of Financial Planning

Better-informed
financial decisions

The planning process helps you to fully understand your existing financial situation and assess the suitability of any new investment opportunities. It can provide you with clarity over what you need to do to achieve your objectives.

Making your money
work for you

Effective planning is the key to allocating your available resources in the most efficient way possible, identifying ways to either save money or make your money work harder for you.

Potential tax savings

Your financial planner can suggest tax strategies that will help you to reduce potential income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax liabilities. Any tax treatment mentioned is based on personal circumstances and current legislation, which is subject to change.

A plan for life’s
uncertainties

Ensure you have access to the right amount of money at the right time. Your financial planner will ask you to consider a number of ‘what if?’ questions to ascertain whether you have planned adequately for the future and whether the income you are taking is sustainable. You could live longer than you think!

Security and
Peace of Mind

A basic rule of sound investing is to spread your money over a range of different investments. This is called diversification. It’s like the old saying: 'Don’t put all your eggs in the one basket'. History shows that different types of investments, and investment managers, perform better than others at different times for different reasons. That’s why diversifying your investments can assist with:

  • Reducing the total amount of risk in an investment portfolio;
  • Optimising the return you’re likely to get for the risk taken;
  • Smoothing out the volatility – the ups and downs of investment returns over time.
Your financial affairs will be organised and kept up to date through portfolio valuations and regular reviews with your financial planner.

Ongoing Support

Effective Financial Planning is the key to allocating your available resources in the most efficient way possible. It is an ongoing process to help you make sensible decisions about money that can help you achieve your goals in life; It is not just about buying products like a pension or an ISA.

The value of investments and income from them may go down. You may not get back the original amount invested.

A pension is a long term investment, the fund value may fluctuate and can go down. Your eventual income may depend on the size of the fund at retirement, future interest rates and tax legislation.

Taking withdrawals may erode the capital value of the fund, especially if investment returns are poor and a high level of income is being taken. This could result in a lower income when the annuity is eventually purchased.
