Financial Life Planning explained

We’re interested in you, not your money. That’s because we understand that wealth is just a means to an end – helping you lead the life you want to live. So, how do we go about making that happen? At AKFP, we passionately believe in the power of financial life planning and its ability to help people lead more fulfilled lives.

So, what is financial life planning? Why is it important? And how does it link in with your finances? 

Life Planning is a powerful process of establishing and focusing on what really matters to you. It underpins everything we do at AKFP.

Our view is that you only get one life, so it’s important to get the most out of it. If you feel there is so much more from life you are yet to discover and experience, it may be time to dig a bit deeper into what’s stopping you.

Why do we link your financial and life plan?

Your overall sense of wellbeing is linked to your financial wellbeing – you’ll already know that! It’s not possible to feel completely secure and confident about the future if you aren’t sure your finances can support you in living the way you want.

Each area of your finances are linked too. You can’t make a change in one area, for example, in your investments, without this affecting another, perhaps your budget. Without all areas of your finances working in harmony, you can’t feel positive and reassured about your future.

Our approach reflects this. We look at your life and your finances as a whole. That means establishing what you want to get out of life and how optimising your finances can enable you to do that. Our clients tell us this is a far more useful way of working than the more “product focused” approach financial advice has previously limited itself to.
