The Four Distinct Phases of Financial Planning

Phase One: The Foundation Years (Mid-20s to Mid-30s)
  • Many years of earning power ahead
  • Plans to buy a home and start a family
  • Willing to accept some fluctuations in investment, result in pursuit of long-term financials goals

Phase Two: The Acquisition Years (Mid-30s to Mid-40s)

  • Income still climbing
  • Establishes a tertiary education fund for children
  • Willing to accept some fluctuations in investment, result in pursuit of long-term financials goals

Phase Three: The Accumulation Years (Mid-40s to Mid-50s)

  • Family responsibilities are winding down
  • Begins to think of retirement
  • Seeks less vilatility in investment results by emphasising more income and capital preservation and less long-term growth

Phase Four: The Reaping-The-Reward Years (Mid-50s to Late Retirement)

  • Retired or about to retire
  • Years of earning high income may be over
  • Plans retirement activities; and assesses ability to set up trust funds for grandchildren
  • Seeks lower volatility in investment results

So where are you at right now?
