Key traits for successful wealth-building

Developing an investment strategy tailored to your goals

Committing to a financial plan is crucial for building wealth and achieving long-term financial goals. When you have a plan, you are more likely to stay focused on your objectives and take the necessary steps to reach them.

Planning allows you to develop an investment strategy tailored to your risk tolerance and financial goals. It helps you understand different investment options, diversify your portfolio and make informed decisions about where to allocate your funds. A comprehensive investment strategy also addresses potential risks and provides contingency measures.

Basic principles to follow for investing and avoiding costly mistakes

Invest early: Starting early is critical to building wealth. Investing for a more extended period allows for the power of compounding, where your savings generate even more earnings over time.

Invest regularly: Consistent investing throughout the year is essential. By investing a fixed amount regularly, you can buy more when prices are low and less when prices are high, potentially reducing the average cost of your investment.

Invest enough: Saving enough today is crucial for achieving long-term financial goals. Knowing how much you need to save now can help you have a sufficient investment portfolio for your future goals.

Have a plan: It’s essential to have a well-structured plan to avoid making hasty investment decisions based on short-term market movements. Maintaining perspective and long-term focus can help you stay committed to your plan.

Diversify your portfolio: Diversification is critical to managing risk and improving your chances of success. Investing in various asset classes, geographical markets and industries allows you to tap into different opportunities and potentially create a smoother investment experience.

Building wealth is a long-term endeavour. A financial plan keeps you focused on the bigger picture, reminding you of your long-term objectives even during short-term market fluctuations or economic downturns. It instils discipline and patience, key traits for successful wealth-building.

Remember, these principles provide general guidance, and it’s always important to consult a financial professional before making investment decisions.

Adam was quick to assess & understand my situation, and was able to discuss & communicate in a very concise and simple way the various options available to me, taking time for me to understand and clarify where necessary. My understanding & knowledge of taxation & pensions has increased significantly allowing me to feel much happier making financial decisions for the future.

Rob – West Sussex

Adam and his team undertook in-depth research into our existing QROPS schemes and clearly set out both pros and cons of transferring the funds back to the UK. Having decided to go ahead with the transfer, Adam and his team worked extremely hard to facilitate the transfer. The QROPS pension trustees were not always the most professional or responsive organisation – however we were very grateful for the perseverance and commitment that Adam showed us as clients.

Jonathan – East Sussex

Adam offered a range of financial products , the one he suggested was affordable and proved to be a good choice.  Returns on investments have exceeded my expectations, based on Adam’s advice and guidance. Profits have enabled house improvements to take place.

David - Surrey

Adam arranged an appointment very timely, he explained his role and qualifications as an IFA giving me reassurance , we went through my retirement and investment goals. Adam discussed my options explaining in great detail, I felt relaxed during our discussions allowing me to fully understand my choices. I feel very confident in the financial advice allowing me to enjoy my retirement.

I was very happy with Adam’s recommendations and explanations of financial products which would suit my retirement goals, I feel this has helped me review and reduce my financial risk as I reach retirement, leaving me feeling confident that I can enjoy my retirement plans.

Ron – West Sussex

After initial meeting Adam put together a very detailed and thorough written plan. At our second meeting he went through the whole booklet and explained everything in layman’s terms which made it a lot easier to understand.

I am very happy with everything that was suggested and put in place especially with something as big and important as pensions. Adam and his team have taken a huge weight off my shoulders and I would highly recommend their services to anyone needing help with their financial planning and pension.  Adam couldn’t have been more helpful, and even came outside his normal area to meet me on a number of occasions.

Richard - Kent

Unfortunately I had to claim on my critical illness insurance due to my wife being ill and because of the sound advice Adam gave in acquiring this insurance we ended up being financially safe through a tough time.

Steve - Kent

Adam did a review of our financial situation, confirmed that Flexible Drawdown best suited our needs as a family, and then did all the research into the best product for us. He will continue to monitor it for me. He acted extremely promptly because we had a deadline for requiring the lump sum; went out of his way arranging meetings during non-office hours, was professional yet friendly and explained a difficult subject very well.

Clare – East Sussex

Adam did a thorough review of my pension policies, clearly explained how well they had performed, how flexible they were, how the market regulation has changed, and, crucially, what the tax implications would be if I were to leave them untouched. He accurately assessed my attitude to risk and recommended an up-to-date solution that will offer me the greatest flexibility at retirement.
