Why you need a financial adviser | Overcoming life’s financial challenges

Back to insights

By Capital Partners Wealth Planning

There are countless reasons someone may find themselves needing a financial adviser in today’s world. As a busy professional, you want to spend your leisure time on weekends with family and friends. With competing priorities, it can be hard to dedicate the hours needed to review your finances, and you can quickly find yourself overwhelmed in information and decisions. It is common for people to feel unsure about when is the right time to look for professional advice. Our team believe in creating futures for our clients that are bigger than just ‘good enough’. We want to remove your uncertainty and replace it with complete confidence. 

We have found there are typically three key challenges our clients face before they engage our support.

1. You simply do not have the time

Between office hours, the kids, your friends, spouse and family, it can be challenging to dedicate time to your finances. As the complexity in your life increases, there are more factors for you to consider and make choices around. This is the point in life where surrounding yourself with compassionate and expert advice will become invaluable. To assist you in identifying what you want to achieve in the future, we encourage you to identify your values, goals, and priorities with those you are closest to. Having these conversations will bring to light how wealth planning can help you achieve your goals in a timely manner, in line with your expectations. Our specialist advice, and desire to build bigger futures for our clients will help you navigate the path forward, so you can get on with doing what you enjoy most.  

2. Your life situation has recently changed

It would come as no surprise that your finances and personal life are heavily influenced by each other. Planning a wedding, buying a new home, or receiving an inheritance are common disruptions to the projection of your long-term goals. Our team will evaluate and guide you on a secure path forward with a plan that instils confidence and clarity. Through regular meetings with our team, you are encouraged to ask questions and queries, so you can feel empowered about every new decision. Our team has supported many clients through planned, and unforeseen events in life. We help you understand the implications of these events, have clear expectations, and provide the right assistance so that you can stay on track with your goals.

3. You don’t know if you will be prepared for retirement

It is never too early to start thinking about retirement. Retirement is meant to be an exciting chapter where you finally have the time and the nest egg to live your life the way you want to. However, if you feel unsure if you will be able to fund your desired lifestyle, this chapter can quickly turn from excitement to fear. When you meet with our team, we will take you through tailored retirement advice, structured holistically to help you to achieve your life goals. Your financial well-being is not the only thing to consider through retirement though. If you love what you do for work, it is important to consider how you will continue to feel fulfilled once you step back. By sharing your life goals and having value-centric conversations that matter, our team will help you discover how you will maintain your purpose while having enough to make it happen.  

Time constraints, life changes, and retirement uncertainty are just some of many challenges of life that can create a cloud of uncertainty around you. However, this is not where you have to stay. When you accept the assistance of our team, you receive more than just financial advice. You gain an all-encompassing support network, helping to guide you through anything life may throw at you.

Do not spend more time postponing life-changing conversations, contact us via phone or a website form to speak with one of our advisers.
