Making better choices
is not always this easy

 

Financial Planning Services

We are independent Financial Planners

The difference between where we are (current status) and where we want to be (vision and goals) is what we do (target objectives and action plans).

The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You'll also quickly spot the distractions that would otherwise lure you from your course.

Our financial planners work out holistic financial plans for individuals in their private capacity as well as corporate clients.

Approach to Financial Planning

Some of the aspects that are covered during our financial planning include:

  • Debt Consolidation/ Elimination
  • Insurance and Health Planning
  • Investment Planning
  • Estate Planning
  • Retirement Planning (Pre, post and during retirement)
  • Tax Advice
  • Money Personality Profiling

Financial Planning Process

This approach to Financial planning provides clients with:

  • Financial solutions which are driven by your personal values and lifestyle goals
  • We use an internationally recognised and accepted methodology
  • We align your assurance and investment portfolios with your lifestyle goals
  • We monitor your progress and make adjustments where necessary to help you achieve your lifestyle goals
