One of the first things a divorce financial planner will assess is your needs and aspirations for the future.
- When do you plan to retire?
- Do you have any pensions?
- Do you want to own your home? Where do you want to live?
- Do you want your children to be privately educated?
- What do you want your lifestyle to look like?
Next on the agenda for any financial advisor is to understand your feelings towards risk and return
- What is your attitude?
- Are you comfortable taking a bigger risk which could lose lots of money short-term because the other edge of the sword gives you a huge return if things go your way?
Some people like to take risks and others don’t. It also depends on how long you have to “play” risk. If you are 20 years away from retiring, then maybe you are prepared to take a few more chances. However, if you are retiring in 5 years and your pension pot is looking healthy, you might be more reluctant and happier plodding along risk free.
