Is your financial plan on track?

Dominic Browning, Managing Director

Many of us save for years via pensions and investments but do NOT know whether we are actually on track to meet our financial goals.

Indeed many of us do NOT have any financial goals, we just get by from day to day. We all need a financial plan. Have you got yours?

If you still working, are you are on track to retire in comfort and live for the rest of your life without the fear of running out of money?

If you are currently retired, can you afford to take more holidays, help the kids/grandkids and still have sufficient put aside for potential care fees?

Can you make provision for Inheritance Tax and care fees and still live the life you have always dreamed of?

Basically there are 3 types of clients:

The "not enoughs" who are largely people still working who need to know what to do to retire comfortably.

The "too muchs" who are people who are already comfortable and are keen to know how much they can give away to their kids and good causes.

The "just rights but they don't know it" who are clients who don't live their lives to the full as they are scared of running out of money".
