What is Financial Planning?

Financial planning can be a complex task with many interconnected variables. Although it is possible to conduct your own financial planning, expert financial advice can make a world of difference and will ensure that your financial goals and dreams are realised.

It is preferable to look at the whole of your financial matters, rather than just focusing on the issue that is of immediate concern. Although focussed advice can be given for isolated problems, such as pension advice or an inheritance tax problem, most financial matters are interconnected.

What does Financial Planning include?

Financial Planning can help with the following financial matters:

  • Investing a lump sum
  • Retirement planning & saving
  • Estate planning & saving
  • Inheritance tax
  • Dividing up pension entitlements on a divorce or separation
  • Ensuring the correct types & amounts of health & life assurance
  • Planning university & school fees
  • Planning & reducing borrowing risk
  • General financial ‘healthchecks’
