If we could achieve our money goals just by putting money in the bank, we wouldn’t need financial advice.
WHY FINANCIAL PLANNING?
Choosing the best way to manage your money can be complex, like the nuances around investing, tax, super, debts and planning for the unexpected. Your financial future is just as important as your health or your kids' education. There are plenty of smart ways to manage money, but it can be difficult to navigate the maze of options. What would you do if your income stopped suddenly? What's the best way to manage if you find yourself spending more than you earn? Do you invest in more than one bank account? To trade or not to trade? If so, how often and what? What's the best strategy to buy a house, or to stop struggling financially?
Most of us make emotional decisions around money; it’s natural. Emotions can make us do things like buy when the market’s high and sell when it’s low. It's the opposite of an effective investment strategy, yet we can feel compelled to go there. So how are mere mortals supposed to know their risk/return trade-off before they invest in anything? The process is not exactly intuitive. What about the thousands of investment and insurance products out there? Where does one even start?
To top it all off, if we finally take the plunge into investment, we're supposed to know why we're investing. If having a totally awesome home on a beach is not an acceptable answer, then what is? Financial advice is not just for the rich, famous or soon-to-retire.
