Cash flow modelling, we believe, is the integral part of any serious client centred financial planning process.
Taking into account your income, expenditure, assets, liabilities plus future planned spending or windfalls etc, we can build a visualisation of your financial future.
The initial model leads to an in-depth conversation about what is really important to you and your family’s long-term financial plans and aspirations.
This could be whether or not you are on course for that early retirement you have been striving for, or goals within your working life, a dream holiday home, funding a wedding or your children’s or grandchildren’s education.
Cash flow modelling allows us to see how achievable your ambitions are, and if so, what actions may need to be taken to make sure you are making the most of your potential.
They also help us to understand if you are able to continue to live a good life in retirement, without running out of money or even potentially dying with too much money, leaving your estate with a possible inheritance tax issue to solve.
The next step, is then to put in place actions to make the most tax efficient effective use of your money, build confidence in your plans, and also solidify our relationship as your trusted source of advice.
The most important part of the financial planning cash flow modelling process however, is the ongoing review.
What makes it work as an invaluable tool is revisiting the model, and re-evaluating your position on a regular basis.
Regular reviews will ensure that the course of any financial plan is maintained and is able to be followed, and amended to take into account any changes in your life.
Whether your investments have increased or reduced in value since the previous year, it’s the impact on your long-term planning that we need to consider. Annually reviewing your model helps avoid making snap investment decisions that could seriously damage long-term investment returns.
