Financial planning

The financial planning process includes getting a comprehensive picture of the current state of your assets and wealth, and, depending on your lifestyle and due regard for life plans, making projections of how your assets and wealth may change in the future.

  • What will happen financially
  • When will I retire or retire early?
  • As for the 2nd Occupational Pension Plan, is it better to choose an annuity, a lump sum or a combination of the two?
  • How can I be tax efficient?
  • Is it possible to give a gift to your children today? And what impact will this have on my future assets?

To provide answers to all these questions and develop solutions for each of them, the company turns to the financial planning process itself. They look at several issues such as occupational 2nd pillar pension, option to purchase in additional years, decision to receive an annuity and/or lump sum, usefulness of a life insurance policy, tax considerations. related to the purchase of real estate and obtaining a mortgage, and for business owners – the consequences of transferring or selling a business, etc.

Once a clear overview is obtained, a report is produced summarizing the state of your financial position and they start a discussion to develop a risk profile to be applied in managing your assets and wealth.
