You may know someone with a financial adviser or hear them talk about their financial plan. But what is financial planning? And how can estate planning solutions help you pass on your wealth?

Financial Planning Specialists

Put simply, financial planning is the process of creating an ongoing, focused plan for managing your finances in line with your needs, values, and personal goals. It’s a roadmap of where you are now, where you want to go in the future, and how you will get there.

When creating a financial plan, you make decisions suited to your expenditure, risk appetite and future goals.

The road map you create, with the help of a certified financial planner, arms you with the information you need to make informed choices about your short-term goals to ensure they align with your long-term plan.

Areas of Financial Planning

Creating a financial plan is ongoing and extensive. There is a lot to consider in so many different areas. Here are some of the key areas you will focus on as part of financial planning:

Investment Planning

Investment planning is an important tool for achieving financial freedom. Investing is an essential part of building wealth. Instead of keeping your money in savings with low interest rates, you can make your money work for you by investing it in various ISAs. Our financial advice will be tailored to your personal financial situation. We will help you make the most of your allowances, investing your capital tax efficiently to protect (and potentially grow) your wealth.

Our financial planning services cover everything from cash ISAs to stocks and shares ISAs, LISAs and JISAs. We offer both advisory-managed and discretionary investment advice.

Retirement Planning

From thinking about early retirement to saving for later life, retirement planning is a big part of financial planning. Our advice can help you make the most out of your pension and any other investments you might have, ensuring you can achieve the retirement you dreamt of.

We create bespoke retirement plans that are suited to your age, your lifestyle, and your risk aversion, helping you invest in your own future, and giving you confidence about your financial future.

Later-life Planning

Later-life planning is similar to retirement, but it focuses more on one specific area: long-term care.

There are so many unknowns when it comes to getting older, including whether you might need some form of care. Whether that’s a live-in carer, daily visits, or moving to a retirement home, we help factor these unknown costs into your later-life plan. We can recommend solutions like paying-as-you-go or immediate needs annuity. We can also talk about your power of attorney.

Estate Financial Planning

Estate financial planning is the process of creating a plan of action for when you pass away. Careful estate financial planning helps you pass over more of your estate (that is, your home, property, savings, pensions etc.) by transferring it in a tax-efficient way. We’ll cover areas such as inheritance tax, gifting, donating to charity and your final will and testament.

In estate financial planning, you’ll decide who you want your beneficiaries to be, when you want them to receive help and how you can keep their inheritance tax bill liabilities to a minimum.

Financial Planning: The Specifics

Now you have an idea of the areas we will look at, here are some of the specific actions you might take (with our help) as part of financial planning.

  • Create a will

This is the only way to ensure your money will go where you want it to. Without an up-to-date will, your personal finances might not be split up how you would want them to be. From pension pots to properties, antiques, debts and savings, your will should be comprehensive.

  • Sort your pension pots

Pensions are confusing, especially if you have amassed several pensions with different providers, from different jobs. Our financial planners can help you decide whether to bring them together.

  • Protect what you’ve got

You insure your car, your house and your holidays, so you should insure your money too. Protecting your income can contribute massively to your peace of mind. This might be through income protection, which will keep the money coming in if (for any reason) you are unable to work. Or, life insurance which will help your loved ones in the event of your death.

  • Start investing

A well-managed, diverse portfolio of investments can help your wealth grow over time. More importantly, it can also keep your money ahead of rising inflation. There are risks, and your money is not always guaranteed to grow, but clever investing is an intrinsic part of financial planning and wealth management.

  • Understand inheritance taxes

You want your loved ones to receive as much of your wealth as possible when you die. Estate planning solutions are essential to achieving this. Our estate planning solutions can help you understand how inheritance tax works and how you can best plan for it.
