Five reasons you need a financial planner

A great financial planner is key to achieving your life goals, dreams and aspirations.

The expert financial planning team at Equilibrium create future-proofing strategies that consider every possible eventuality, ensuring that you and your family are not only making the very most of every penny, but securing the brightest future possible. Sounds like a good plan?

So, what are the benefits of having a financial planner?


By using a financial planner, you’ll receive advice on how and where to invest your money. A good financial planner will get a comprehensive understanding of your risk profile (including your attitude, need and desire for risk) objectives and your personal circumstances, creating a list of potential investments which perfectly fit your needs and goals. 

Family security

Whether you’ve already started your family or plan on doing so in the future, providing for them in the very best way you can will always be a high priority. By having proper insurance policies and coverage for you and your family, you’re ensuring a secure future for yourselves and long-lasting peace of mind. We do recognise it can be difficult to know where to start, so we’ve created a handy guide to family financial planning. You can read the short guide here: A short guide to family financial planning

Income and savings

A financial planner will help you manage your income in an effective and advantageous way. By managing your income you’ll get a better understanding of how much excess money you have available after bill payments, taxes and other monthly expenditures. With this new understanding, you’ll be able to generate a better cash flow and save more of your hard-earned money for a rainy day – or when you just fancy spoiling yourself!  

Ongoing advice

One of the main advantages of having a financial planner is that you’ll never be left wondering what to do next. You’ll receive ongoing advice about your finances whenever you need it. Your life can change with the blink of an eye – whether it’s because you’ve got a new job or you’re welcoming a new addition into your family. Whenever these life changes occur, you can meet with your financial adviser to assess your financial circumstances and create a new financial plan customised for your new life path.

Hopes and dreams

Last, but by no means least, is the fact that an experienced financial planner can help you achieve your life goals and dreams. Spending time with a great financial planner could open doors to opportunities you thought were never achievable, or dared to dream where possible. It’s an exciting prospect, and we get a lot of satisfaction from helping our clients to achieve their life goals.
