It’s a common misconception that a financial planner is the preserve of the super-rich. No matter how much you earn, you could benefit from working with a professional. Find out what an Infinity financial adviser can do for you.
Of course, the very rich need an adviser to ensure that their wealth is managed and protected correctly. But so do you!
The vast majority of Infinity clients are ordinary people, just like you. Some may earn millions, others thousands, but most of them share similar goals. They want to purchase a home, secure a comfortable retirement, fund their children’s education, protect their wealth, and pass it on to future generations.
Whatever their income level, our financial planners help make these goals a reality.
Five things a financial planner can do with you
Clarify your financial goals
Most of us want to secure a comfortable retirement by building a pension fund but what exactly does that mean?
A financial adviser will help you turn imprecise goals into precise, quantifiable ones based on your current level of wealth, earning potential and personal desires. For example, you might decide that you want to retire at 60 with a pension pot of a million pounds. It’s important to have clarity on what you are trying to achieve, and a financial adviser can provide that.
Devise a strategy for achieving those goals
How much do you need to save each month and how much capital growth do you require to achieve your goals? A financial planner can help you work out the answers to these questions using sophisticated tools.
Assess your attitude and tolerance to risk
How your money is invested will depend on how much risk you are willing to take as well as how much you can afford to take. If you are retiring within a decade, for example, you need to be more cautious than someone in their twenties just starting out on the career ladder. You have far less time to recoup any losses and that needs to be factored into your financial plan.
Our financial planners will do a detailed risk tolerance assessment to ensure that your plan is aligned to your risk profile.
Protect your wealth
It’s important not to neglect wealth protection. A financial adviser can accurately assess your life insurance, health insurance and critical illness needs and suggest the best policies to ensure that whatever happens to you, your investments and the financial well-being of your family is not put in jeopardy.
Infinity works with many of the world’s major insurers and our advisers have access to a wide range of products. They can help you select the most appropriate ones to suit your needs and your budget.
Estate planning enables you to preserve your wealth for future generations by making sure your investments are protected against inheritance tax and other liabilities. It is a vital part of financial planning.
Important elements of estate planning include ensuring that you have a valid will (or wills if you have assets in different jurisdictions), nominating guardians for your children and structuring your investments to mitigate a potential inheritance tax burden.
Our financial planners have a wealth of experience helping expatriates with their estate planning requirements. They know the potential pitfalls and can help you avoid them.
