Financial News Update we 19/11/2010

Hope you have had a good week this week?

Well, as far as I can tell at least, the “…let’s get this sorted by Christmas…” race has started with many clients now deciding it’s time to get organized – have you found the same thing?

This week has also seen a number of later life related articles affecting those who are either approaching retirement or perhaps are already retired and now face many new financial issues.

To these people, there is only one piece of advice that would apply across the board – get a financial plan in place!

Of course, the plan itself will be different from one person to the next, depending on the particular issue (or issues) they face, their financial & family situation, tax status, attitude to risk, objectives etc but unless we have a plan in place how will anything ever be achieved?

Information is out there either by researching yourself or asking for an adviser to do it on your behalf but, if you choose the latter, ensure they are a) independent and b) work on a fee basis.

Have a great weekend!
