What is Financial Planning?
Financial planning is about developing personal strategies to help you manage your financial affairs and to help you meet your financial and life goals.
The first step is to make sure you have access to the right advice.
Unfortunately life is complex and is not easy. It is hard to understanding the ever changing government rules and regulations - your taxation structure, your life and disability, income protection insurance, your superannuation, what is Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF), your pension, your loans and refinancing, and your investment structure.
"Financial planning is a specialist profession and you should make sure that you’re getting advice from a properly qualified person. A financial planner will help you reach your goals; even if retirement may seem a lifetime away, the sooner you start planning the more likely you’ll be to achieve financial independence and peace of mind"
“A survey of Yale University graduates in 1953 showed that only 3% had written down their financial plans for the future. Twenty years later a follow up survey of the same graduates showed that the assets of the 3% who had written down their plan exceeded the combined assets of the 97% who had not.”
