We offer a personal independent financial planning service, answering your questions, including "How much is enough?". As a responsible business Simon focusses on small and micro business owners in Yate and surrounding areas, who care about their family and their future.
Financial planning is really quite simple – “spend less than you earn”. However, life is complicated as we like to change jobs, homes, start a family, care for the young and the old. This is where savings (in the form of cash, investments and pensions), mortgages and protection plans become useful.
Retirement planning forms a part of Financial Planning, with a specific focus on retirement and pensions, but also any other resources you may have. A lifetime cashflow plan helps you understand the future outlook for your finances and may demonstrate that you can retire earlier than you first thought.
The key to estate planning is to understand the full value of your estate, the nature of those assets on death and how you would like the proceeds divided between your loved ones, wider family, friends and charity.
The value of pensions and investments can fall as well as rise. You can get back less than you invested.
