The importance of personal financial planning

Financial planning enables you to create and work towards financial goals, both short and long term. It encourages you to follow a balanced plan to ensure these goals are met and means you will have a better understanding and greater steer on the many different aspects of financial planning.

Financial planning is incredibly important because it allows you to set both short and long-term goals and directs you to the best ways of achieving them. It gives you the peace of mind and the confidence that you're on track to securing the financial future for you and your family that you have always hoped for."   Andrew Hirst, Partner and Chartered Financial Planner at Equilibrium

The benefits of effective financial planning

  • Improved income management

Effective tax planning can help you better manage your income by giving you a clearer idea of the amounts you will need for specific financial activities, including monthly outgoings and tax payments.

  • Improved investment management

A sound financial plan can help you select investments that are the right fit for you, based on various factors including your long-term objectives and attitude to risk.

  • Increased cashflow

With a better handle on your incomings and outgoings, as well as improved planning with regard to spending and tax, you can make significant strides towards improved cashflow.

  • Increased capital

Greater capital can derive from higher cashflow, which will give you the opportunity to use your money to grow your assets further - through investment, for example.

  • Improved family security

Financial security is a major reason why many people choose to build a financial plan; having one will ensure you have all of the right policies - such as insurance - in place.

  • Improved financial understanding

It always helps to have a good understanding of your finances and having a strong financial plan will help with this. It will help you know your objectives and how best to meet them.

  • Increased savings

A financial plan can help you with your savings in the traditional sense, and can also help by ensuring you have investments with high liquidity, which can come in very handy in an emergency or when a significant outlay is required.

Bespoke financial management

Once you decide to put a financial plan in place, we will look at your starting point, your potential goals and work out the growth rate required to take you from point A to B, over the right time horizon and using the right vehicles to get you there, perhaps even allowing for a little additional spending on the way.

And of course, there aren't just your own requirements to consider – you may like to help your family along their own paths as well.

At Equilibrium we understand the financial worries keeping you awake at night, perhaps relating to the complexities of estate planning, or wondering how to take care of yourself in the later years. In the shorter term, the impact of inflation and its headline-grabbing threat might be the issue causing you concern.
