To build a sound investment plan for the future, the first thing you need to do is consult a financial planner who will conduct an analysis of your current situation with the view to connecting your financial status with needs and goals. From this starting point, a strategy can be set in place comprising steps to a well-considered investment regime that will ultimately build the kind of wealth you dream of and hope for. It’s a thorough investigation of your financial affairs. A financial needs analysis is therefore essential to preparing for, and accessing, future financial needs.
There is no one plan that suits everyone, which is precisely why the individual analysis must be done. It’s a process that will be affected by five major factors: current wealth; income; health; dependents; and goals.
