Maintaining proper management of your finances is a critical component in helping you to achieve your future plans. If you’re not on track to achieving your goals, a financial planner can help you put the right strategies in place, or come up with more realistic financial goals.
We take a look at some of the common signs that you may be in need of financial assistance.
You own a business
Whether you’re thinking of starting your own business or you’re a long-term entrepreneur, knowing how to prioritise your financial goals is crucial. From managing cash flow on an income that fluctuates monthly to saving for retirement, obtaining health insurance and protecting you and your family against a loss in income is imperative.
You’re living week to week
If you’re struggling to reach your savings goals, and find that you are living week-to-week with no clear understanding as to your current financial circumstances a financial planner is often a great option. They can help you to focus on your savings goals, restructure your expenses and provide a tailored cash flow and budgeting service to help you turn the next page in your financial life.
You’re looking to make a big purchase
When looking to buy a first home or make another sizeable investment, understanding the overall effect on your cash flow, lifestyle and future goals can become overwhelming.
This is where the services of a financial planner can be invaluable in helping to determine what you can afford whilst also focusing on other financial goals and future savings.
Your family is growing
The arrival of a baby brings with it a number of financial considerations, from ensuring you have an emergency fund to cover expenses, to adjusting spending for child care, groceries, medical costs and insurance.
You don’t have a strategy for down markets
The tech bubble of 2000 and the financial crisis of 2008 were harsh reminders as to the importance of portfolio diversification. Being able to anticipate a downturn is something that often alludes even the most seasoned adviser, the difference is they can help you to adopt strategies to help protect your capital.
