Reaping the rewards

Congratulations! If you’re someone who consulted a financial planner many years ago and put a long-term wealth creation and protection plan in place, retirement is when you reap the benefits.

However, even if you’re nearing retirement and haven’t consulted a financial planner before, there is still a huge amount of help and advice you can benefit from.

For most of us, the big questions around our retirement will include:

Your trusted partner in retirement

The superannuation and retirement financial landscape is complicated and ever changing. You’ll have multiple options and important decisions to make.

Aside from the purely financial elements like super, pensions and investments, there are many lifestyle and emotional sides to retirement and the later phases of life that can have financial ramifications.

Below are just a few of the other big decisions and issues you’re likely to face when planning this stage of life. They range from setting up your finances to enjoy your retirement to making sure you don’t become a burden on your loved ones in your later years. Your Fiducian financial planner has the experience and expertise to help with any or all of them.
