Step 1 – Gathering information The first meeting with your financial planner will give you the opportunity to discuss your current financial situation. Typically, they will ask about how much you earn, other sources of income, commitments, and how you spend your money. Step 2 – Identifying goals An essential part of this process is to clearly identify your financial goals. Your financial planner should take into account timeframes, financial commitments and other influences that may impact the development of your plan. Step 3 – Identifying and prioritising financial issues Your financial planner will assess your financial situation by asking you about your attitude towards risk and diversification as well as your time frame which will then help you prioritise your goals. Step 4 – Preparing your financial plan Based on your financial situation and goals, your financial planner will develop a complete strategy and prepare it for your review. Step 5 – Implementing your financial plan It’s good to approach your plan with flexibility; once you’ve agreed with your plan, it’s time to put it into action. Step 6 – Reviewing your plan Staying on track is important to help you meet your goals and expectations. Your situation will change, so from time to time your financial planner will review your plan and check the progress of your strategy.
