The value of your investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you paid in.
A good financial plan doesn't stop when you have retired. Taking outside factors like market volatility and investment performance into account, ongoing advice will ensure that your plan continues working towards your goals long after retirement.
Our Planners use cash flow modelling to understand how far your money will go. This, in its simplest form, is the process of understanding your current and forecasted wealth, along with income and expenditure, to get a view of your finances both now and in the future.
In the past your income may have come from a salary. Now that you’re retired, our Planners will look at all your assets to create a financial plan that enables you to achieve the life you want in retirement, including minimizing tax so your money goes further.

However, in some cases long-term care may become a necessity. Planning ahead can play a key role in allowing you – and your family - to be prepared if needs be.
