When do you want to retire?
How much will you need to retire happily on?
What legacy would you like to leave?
Are your plans for retirement working in a way you expected them to?
What do you still need to tick off the bucket-list?
We spend time considering these questions with our clients - everyone is different, and so are their aspirations and financial goals. Together we will define your goals and then work together to draft a plan, set it in place and then regularly monitor it to see that your plans remain on track. Often we will provide a lifetime cash-flow model, so that you can picture how your future finances will map out and forecast any changes you might want to make.
