The big picture

Once your financial situation and goals are fully understood, we use cashflow planning to illustrate the financial future you could have. Seeing a picture of how your assets could work to achieve your aspirations can be reassuring and help you make more informed decisions about your wealth.

What is it?

Cashflow planning is a great way to visualise your personal financial future

Most high-net-worth clients we meet have a broad understanding of what their wealth might achieve but haven’t looked into the detail. By assessing your current financial circumstances and forecasting your future wealth, along with your anticipated income and expenditure, we can use cashflow planning to help you visualise different scenarios and explore potential options.

With a clear picture of your complete wealth, as well as your goals and timelines, our experienced wealth planners can help you make provisions for anticipated life events and commitments and manage your future cashflow.

What it shows

Cashflow planning creates a picture of how your wealth can be managed to achieve your goals

  • A road map for life

    By understanding your current financial circumstances and your future goals and aspirations, our wealth planners can plan the best route you can take to achieve them.

  • Complexity made simple

    Charts can be used to visualise each year of your life up to 100 – with inflows such as earnings, rental or pension income set against your total expenditure requirements each year, including regular expenses, mortgage and education costs, and tax.

    Major life events can also be included to reflect their impact on your ongoing cashflow. Using assumed inflation and forecasting tools, we can then show you a snapshot of your financial situation at any point along your timeline.

What if scenarios?

Visualise your personal financial future

We can stress test your cashflow plan to ensure a high probability of success. This could include building in periods of market decline to see how they affect your assets and whether they impact your financial outcomes. The benefits of cashflow planning can include:

  • Understanding

    Charting your income sources, fixed expenses, discretionary expenses, savings and investments, allows us to get a better understanding of your financial situation.

  • Analysis

    Once we have a picture of your current situation, our cashflow analysis software allows us to analyse your situation over the short, medium and long term.

  • Forecasting

    Our cashflow planning software enables us to explore and project future financial scenarios to help you achieve your goals and aspirations.

Success in retirement

A wealth plan can identify the most efficient ways to manage your retirement wealth

As you reach retirement, our wealth planners are able to analyse and identify the most tax-efficient ways to drawdown money from your various assets and investments and make use of the current allowances, exemptions and structures available.

Your wealth plan could show that you’ll still have significant assets left as you reach 100. This should prompt discussions on whether you wish to spend more or start planning for succession, such as gifting money to children or charity during your lifetime. We can also predict your likely UK inheritance tax liability and work to mitigate it through estate planning.

Staying on track

Manage life’s unexpected changes with regular reviews

Your wealth plan is only one of a multitude of potential outcomes over the years ahead. We’ll review your financial circumstances and goals with you each year, and if necessary, adjust your plan accordingly to make sure you remain on track to achieve your goals.
