Financial planning isn’t just reserved for the especially wealthy. Whether we’re aware of it or not, all of us are on a financial planning journey and nearly all of us will want to make the most of our money where we can. The ongoing impact of Covid-19 on the nation’s physical, mental and financial health has focused many people’s minds on the need for financial planning.
However, keeping a watchful eye on our financial resilience (our ability to recover quickly from unexpected financial shocks) is an exercise we should all be doing on a regular basis, rather than something we only think about in times of stress. Whether it’s a change in our circumstances, for example on marriage or divorce or on starting a family, beginning to save for or to take retirement or investing to provide for our children’s education, financial planning can help everyone across all stages of their lives.
It’s hard to plan objectively for ourselves as our financial decisions are often driven by emotion. We might worry that we’re not making the right choices for our family or feel nervous about making choices we’re not confident about. You can search for products online, but how do you know which ones will provide the best solution for you?
