Life planning helps to identify and achieve those goals that can bring meaning and happiness to our lives.
Financial planning will tend to focus on monetary goals, calculations and assumptions that can be used to identify the best way forward.
Blend the two together and Financial Life Planning seeks to create the financial options in life that can bring about a sense of wellbeing.

This could mean an adjustment to retirement expectations, actions to reduce spending, better use of your income and savings. Sometimes it can even involve spending more now to make the most of life whilst you’re fit enough to enjoy it!
