Back to insights

By Capital Partners Women in Life Transition

When a woman is going through a significant life change, such as divorce, many different factors need to be considered and decided on. It is understandable that you may find yourself putting off the process of analysing the intricacies of your financial affairs during this time. Building trusted relationships through these life shifts will allow you to rebuild your control and confidence. Finding, selecting, and ultimately working with the right adviser can allow you to find solace when going through a divorce. An adviser will focus on you, providing holistic guidance with an ongoing support team. Working together to build your confidence, they will ensure that everything is under control, so you have peace of mind that you and your loved ones will be okay. 

Discover three key ways our team empowers our clients in navigating the challenges of divorce. 

1. Be someone who acts in your best interest

Having someone who acts in your best interest during divorce and ensures every decision aligns with your goals will provide the stability that may have been missing in recent times. You may find yourself dealing with an influx of financial noise, such as splitting assets and restructuring financial affairs. When you add in the likelihood of heightened emotion given the circumstances, it can become increasingly challenging to make sound decision-making that truly reflects what is best for you. Our team of financial advisers offer an unbiased perspective which can be a relief when you are receiving the thoughts and opinions of others. Having assisted women navigate divorce for over 20 years, we will work with you and your family, act in your best interest and steer you towards you achieving your goals. You have spent your life looking out for everyone else, your adviser will look out for you.  

2. Provide you with all-encompassing support

Your family and friends are likely the most influential people in helping you feel supported during your divorce and thereafter. In addition, financial advisers are uniquely positioned to provide you with all-encompassing support during the transitional periods of your life. If your divorce requires additional expert insight, our team is connected to a suite of professional contacts such as accountants and lawyers who have been specifically chosen to be part of our community. Like us, our partners are values-driven, experienced in divorce sensitivities, and motivated to achieve the same outcomes as us ensuring you live your ideal life. With an adviser, you have the benefit of an ongoing relationship. You can schedule meetings when required, and have the conversations that matter about your future, such as legacy and estate plans. 

3. Help you become confident and empowered

It is never too late to build upon your financial knowledge. While the days of women being absent from household financial conversations are long gone, even finance enthusiasts are likely to find the nuances and ever-changing legislation of the industry overly complicated. A financial adviser, however, can interpret the detail, and provide you with options, so you are across every aspect of your plan, ensuring you are empowered and assured through every decision. With the help of our team, your path forward will put yourself back in control of your financial freedom. With clarity and confidence in your plan, you can get on with life and spend time with those you love.  

Divorces are not always smooth sailing. Having a team of supportive experts surrounding you, and working towards your goals, will create the confidence you need to regain control of your life. Our team of financial advisers are dedicated to helping you achieve this control by looking beyond your finances, at what you want in life and what matters most. We create a holistic life plan around your goals with continual support to ensure you achieve them.

If you are in a situation of wanting this kind of support, connect with our team to begin the journey of regaining your independence.
