What is a Financial Planner?
The role of a financial planner is to work with you to establish your life goals and put in place strategies for using your money to achieve those goals. The starting point in this process is a meeting with your adviser to establish your goals and to understand your current financial situation. This involves completing a questionnaire with the help of your adviser covering your assets, liabilities, income, expenditure, key areas of financial risk and your attitudes towards money and risk. Your adviser will then work with you to establish a plan for achieving your goals.
A Certified Financial Planner is someone who has completed a university diploma in personal financial planning, and who has met the requirements of the Institute of Financial Advisers (IFA) for training and mentored experience.
In broad overview, Moneymax services encompass the following areas:
Preparation of your Financial Plan
A financial plan is a personalised written document which sets out your goals, your current situation, your attitudes towards money and risk and which recommends strategies in the areas of wealth creation, wealth management and wealth protection. It is a "living" document, in that it should evolve with your life-stage and be updated from time to time as you and your needs evolve and mature.
We can recommend investments for you to look after yourself or a portfolio that we can manage for you. In recommending investments we consider your goals, your current situation and your attitudes towards money and risk.
We can review your existing portfolio, provide investment advice, or answer general queries about financial matters. If requested, we can provide professional, personalised advice on all aspects of wealth creation, wealth management and wealth protection.
Retirement Planning and KiwiSaver
Your Moneymax financial adviser can help you plan your retirement by calculating how much money you will need to provide a comfortable lifestyle when you retire. Your retirement plan will look at how much you need to save to reach your retirement goals and where to save, including recommendations on investing in a KiwiSaver scheme as well as alternatives which are complementary to KiwiSaver.
Wealth creation is the process of increasing your net wealth over time with the aim of using that wealth to achieve your life goals. The key components to wealth creation are:
Research shows that people who don't have a clear goal in mind when they save are more likely to withdraw their savings rather than letting them accumulate.
We can take care of your investment portfolio for you. We will recommend investments for you, manage all the paperwork, provide quarterly reports and end of year tax reporting.
If you have spent time working and saving hard and investing wisely to build up a nest egg you don't want to lose it again through the effects of inflation or poor investment decisions.
Moneymax can help you plan how to manage your wealth so that your life goals can be met – whether that means being able to cut down on the hours you work, retire early, provide income for a comfortable retirement or go on a world tour. We will work with you to:
Our recommendations will usually be documented in a financial plan that is tailored to your needs.
Wealth Protection and Life Insurance
Life doesn't always go according to plan. Redundancy, illness or premature death are threats to your wealth and your ability to provide for your partner and children. You can choose to carry these risks yourself or to pass them on to someone else by way of insuring your life, your health or your income and by building up an emergency fund.
Looking after your family also means making sure you have an up-to-date will, protecting your assets from relationship property claims and planning the way in which your assets will be passed on to your beneficiaries.
Moneymax can help identify the risks and issues that you face and put you in touch with expert assistance to deal with them.
Moneymax Wealth Coaching
Your Moneymax wealth coach is a financial planner who guides you in the wealth creation process so that you can manage your wealth in order to achieve your life goals. Coaching is based on regular meetings aimed at helping you develop your own financial plan and strategies for wealth creation using our coaching workbooks and templates.
If you are living from payday to payday - or if you wish to achieve financial freedom through wealth creation - your Moneymax coach will get you on track. (See our Moneymax Coach website www.moneymaxcoach.com)
