Planning for Your Next Big Life Event

20 Jan 2020

There’s change ahead but can your finances cope?

Event date: Friday, 21 February 2020

What significant life event is next on the horizon for you? Buying your first home, stepping higher up the property ladder, a wedding, plans to start or expand your family, or early retirement?

It’s never too early to plan for a lifestyle change! In fact, it makes perfect sense since the earlier you plan, the less you need to set aside each month leading up to your big event.

Sound financial planning can be likened to a road map – only some of us haven’t yet decided on a final destination. It sometimes helps to have a navigator who can help to identify our end point, ensure we’re on the right road and steer around the bumps along the way.

With the guiding hand of independent financial planner and guest speaker Dan Barrell of Cameron Chase Ltd, this masterclass aims to introduce delegates to better financial planning for their dream lifestyles through:

  • understanding their personal mindset and how to get out of bad habits;
  • learning to spend as well as learning to save;
  • achieving true financial independence – in other words, how to remove reliance on any asset, person or source of income;
  • weighing up their liquid and fixed assets; and
  • understanding lifetime cashflow planning and scenario setting – do the numbers add up?

Who should attend?

Anyone who is planning or expecting a change in their lifestyle.

Learning outcome

You will leave the session with an expenditure questionnaire which presents the first step in identifying your assets and where you might be ‘leaking’ money.
