What is Financial Planning?

Financial Planning normally revolves around preparing a 'Statement of Advice' or SOA customised to your needs and goals. The Advice is then either accepted or rejected, and then reviewed on a regular basis to ensure it continues to meet the client's objectives. The stages of this process are: initial consultation, financial plan preparation, implementation and ongoing review. The details of these stages are described below.

Steps in the planning process

1. Initial Consultation

The Initial consultation with a financial planner is free of cost or obligation.

It is an opportunity for the financial planner to understand your current situation, your objectives and goals, and for you to assess how Wholistic Financial Coaching can assist you. This also gives you a clearer picture of the Wholistic Financial Coaching process and the ways in which we can help you achieve your objectives.

The initial consultation includes:

  • A general discussion regarding your financial circumstances
  • Collection of important information to initiate the advice process such as:
    - assets, liabilities, income, expenses
    - asset protection needs
    - current investments
    - current structures
    - goals and objectives
    - time horizon
    - preferences and dislikes
  • completing of a risk profile assessment that helps us understand your attitude towards investing
  • identification of any specific financial issues or concerns
  • discussion and agreement regarding your goals

Should you wish to move to the next level of receiving professional advice, the type and scope of plan is agreed on between you and us.

2. Financial Plan (Statement of Advice) Preparation

Wholistic Financial Coaching has a flexible approach to plan preparation: We provide written advice tailored to you. The fee, which is negotiated with you prior to preparation, is based on what your individual plan entails.

3. Implementation

Once the final details of the financial plan have been agreed upon, the next step is implementation.

This can be a complicated, time-consuming part of the process, requiring care and expertise to ensure the recommended financial strategy is put into place smoothly and efficiently.

Implementation involves the fine tuning of recommendations and calculations, the completion of all required paperwork and following through each step until it is completed.

4. Review Services

To ensure the initial strategy established in the financial plan continues to meet your needs, and to allow for your changing circumstances, ongoing review of you investment needs and progress towards your goals is essential. Wholistic Financial Coaching provides a tailored review program, specific to your situation.
