Your money blueprint
Just as you probably plan a road map for a major journey, a financial plan is your blueprint to follow to achieve financial independence.
Having a plan is always sensible. It gives us a sense of direction and provides pointers to follow throughout our lives – to both measure progress and keep us on track to reach our goals.
A financial plan does exactly this, and more, for our money.
How your financial plan works
The starting point of your financial plan is to set some goals – short, medium and long term targets to work towards. These objectives are central to your plan. After all, there’s not much point in having a plan if you have nothing to aim for.
From here, your plan sets out a strategy to manage your cashflow, making allowances for everyday spending, saving and growing a pool of investments including superannuation. These investments are the key to achieving your goals.
An important aspect of your financial plan is ensuring your assets, wealth and financial wellbeing are protected against the unexpected. This is where having adequate and appropriate insurance comes in.
Having a quality estate plan plays a valuable role too. Having built up wealth, you need to be comfortable that your assets will be inherited by the people who matter to you.
