Lifestyle financial planning

As a relatively new branch of financial services, lifestyle financial planning is not something most people outside the sector have heard of or understand

Historically a standard life assurance policy and pension were considered sufficient for retirement and insurance purposes, alongside perhaps one or more investment plans.

This blanket approach moved forward a few decades ago, when advisers started to at least undertake a fact find to ascertain their client’s financial situation before recommending products.

Many financial advisers are still thriving on the commission they earn from insurance companies for promoting investment funds, despite the mis-selling scandals such as pensions, endowments and PPI which have given the industry such a bad name.

However, the best financial advisers have turned away from this flawed product-led approach and have instead embraced lifestyle financial planning.

This thorough process centres on understanding the lifestyle you want to have now and in your retirement, and identifying how much you need to achieve this without ever fearing you could run out of money.

With greater life expectancy and higher standard of living expectations, it is more important than ever to properly plan your finances to ensure you can afford to live the kind of life you are accustomed to or aspire to.
