Why is it important to have a financial plan?

Having a financial plan can put you ahead on all your financial goals. It takes the curiosity out of what your future might look like and helps you make informed financial decisions. 

The more extensively you plan for your financial future, the more likely you are to save, invest and manage credit card debt. You can plan for retirement, education, emergencies, major purchases and insurance needs, and accelerate your financial wealth. 

A financial plan instills confidence and gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you can cover your monthly expenses, set aside money for short and long-term goals, and dip into a pile of cash for a few guilt-free splurges or emergencies. This might feel out of reach at first, but a financial plan can propel you in the right direction. 

The benefits of financial planning include:

  • Knowing what you are trying to achieve in life and having strategies to help you reach specific goals
  • Maximising opportunities that are available to you, such as superannuation and transition to retirement strategies
  • Assurance that your financial decisions will benefit you and your family long into the future
  • Having a realistic estimated retirement date and knowing exactly how much money you’ll have to retire on
  • Understanding the implications of your spending 
  • Making the most of your current financial circumstances
  • Cash flow to support setbacks and potholes
  • Freedom to pursue your dreams
