What is financial planning?

Financial planning helps people identify and work towards achieving their financial and lifestyle goals.  Essentially, it helps you be more in control of your income, expenses, and investments so you can make informed decisions about managing your money and achieving your goals. This is done by clarifying what you want to achieve, assessing how you might achieve it and developing strategies to address expected and unexpected events that may occur along the way.

Your Financial Planner can help you structure a way to replace income or pay down debt if you were unable to work, develop strategies for growing your wealth, for both short- and long-term requirements, and build a cash reserve to address and manage unexpected expenses.

Throughout life different events occur that will have varying impacts on your financial future and security including:

  • starting work, changing jobs, receiving a promotion, or being made redundant
  • changing relationship status (for example, getting married or divorced),
  • serious injury, illness or loss of a loved one
  • moving house,
  • having children, or
  • heading into retirement.

It is important to be able to adapt and change to accommodate life events and utilising the advice and service from your Financial Planner can make a significant difference in managing your financial situation and drive better outcomes for you and your family.

Our aim at Fiducian is to build a strong long-term relationship so you know you have someone to turn to when your life changes, who can provide financial strategies and advice to keep you on track and achieving your goals.

How can financial planning help you?

How often have you asked yourself any of the following:

  • How can I increase my wealth?
  • How much do I need to retire?
  • How can I pay less tax legally?
  • How can I make the most of changes to tax legislation?
  • When should I make a will?
  • Should I borrow money to invest?
  • How can I fund my children’s education?
  • Can I maximise returns without higher risk?

Understanding investments

Investment values and returns are influenced by several factors:

  • the economy
  • investment asset classes
  • timeframe
  • investment risk level

Your financial planner considers each of these factors in their recommendations and provides you with options to help you achieve your goals through:

  • diversifying investments and asset classes
