Invest for the future
When we sit down to design your financial plan we will discuss both your short and longer term goals. Quite often our clients will have a specific event in mind such as saving for a family holiday or deposit to move home or planning for their children’s education.
We will examine what savings exist now and how much might be required in the future and set out an investment journey to deliver upon those goals. We look at your income and spending and give you and idea of typical expenditure levels for your family unit. This gives you a good idea of what you should be spending and what you might be able to save to help meet your goals.
A key element of any financial plan is having a ‘rainy day’ fund to cover emergencies and we will discuss this with you also.
Future Plan will guide you through the process, providing reporting and ongoing advice
What we do
There are two things we look for:
- Understand your savings objectives. We manage this through our cashflow modelling software to illustrate how much you need to invest to reach your goals.
- Understand your attitude towards risk via our questionnaire and risk modelling tool. We will also consider your Capacity for risk – this is done by compiling all relevant financial information so we know how much risk you can bear. We take all the data we have gathered into account and ensure that our solution matches your circumstances.
- Implement an investment plan that meets your savings goals whilst being consistent with your overall risk tolerance.
Who we help
We advise individual clients who could have a short term savings goal in mind and require a strategy to reach a specific target. We also advise clients who have a lump sum amount following retirement or the sale of an asset on how best to utilise those funds as part of their financial plan.
