Comprehensive, fee-based financial planning

Many individuals confuse financial planning with general savings and investing advice. While how to save (and how much!), and where and when to invest those savings, is every bit important, prudent Financial Planning goes much beyond the realm of just saving and investing. The sooner you understand the role of financial planning in meeting your short, medium and long-term financial aspirations, the better you’ll be able to control your financial destiny.

WHY FINANCIAL PLANNING IS IMPORTANT

A well-grounded financial plan is essential for anyone who wishes to accomplish specific financial objectives. Whether it be the idea of owning your home (sooner, rather than later!), funding your children’s education, or helping ensure smooth and stress-free retirement; all of these seemingly disparate components come together under a unified financial plan.

The scope of an effective financial plan should therefore cover key aspects such as Saving, Budgeting, Investing, Tax planning, Insurance planning, Retirement planning, Estate planning, and much more.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

Our systematic approach to Financial Planning services includes:

  • Discovering You: We realize that financial planning is all about YOU! And the only way that we can deliver what YOU need is to understand what those needs are. We do this through a consultative discovery approach of getting to know you, and helping you understand what we can do for you.
  • Strategizing: Now that our professionals have a better sense of who you are, and what you wish your financial future to look like, we can work together to create a financial strategy that will help you fulfil those financial objectives.
  • Holistic Planning: Cookie cutters don’t work for us – and we believe they don’t serve the interest of our clients either. Through our systematic strategy-building process, we’ll create a set of personalized, holistic plans – for the short, intermediate and long-term, that will help fulfil your overall financial strategy. Our planning process is intensive, and we do it using a consultative and iterative approach. Each session brings us closer to helping you achieve the financial objectives that we set out together, during the Discovery phase.
  • Frequent Reviewing and Monitoring: While we’ll laud you at every successful step of your financial plan, we’ll stay vigilant throughout the process to help make sure you stay on track to meet each of the objectives set out in the plan. Through monitoring, and frequent reviews with you, we’ll consult with you and make modifications to the strategies and plans as and when needed.
Once your plans are in place, we can walk you through the process of implementing them. Whether it’s making investment decisions, choosing appropriate insurance for you and your family, saving enough (and regularly) to help reach your retirement goals, or creating an Estate Plan to help preserve your legacy; our qualified financial advisors will be right there by your side as you take each step. Through foresight, encouragement and professionalism, we’ll help make sure each step of the plan is successful.
