Goals and Risk tolerance:

  • Fact find about yourself
  • What frustrates you?
  • What do you want to improve?
  • What are goals? What are financial goals?
  • How do we separate them into short term, medium term and long term goals?
  • Give an example of what you want to achieve
  • This helps clarify what’s important to you, and gives 4 options
  1. Home
  2. Family
  3. Wealth
  4. Lifestyle
  • Ranking these in order of priority to you, to help focus on what is important now
  • A matrix about you: what is currently frustrating for you? What is holding you back?
  • What are the 5 things that you would spend your time doing if you weren’t working?
  • What are the things you enjoy doing, that are practical?
  • What is the value of these things?
  • What are you working towards? What will you be sacrificing for?
  • Goal planning: why is each one important? How much will you need?
  • Target amounts and target dates are required, check out the workbook!

Getting to know your Risk tolerance:

  • Personal situations and what kind of investor are you?
  • What are your personal experiences?
  • How confident are you? This can hinder your financial development
  • What are your investment expectations and behaviours?
  • How do you respond to market volatility?
  • If I want a greater annual return I need to be consistent with my tolerance of volatility
  • What is your experience and what are you comfortable with?
  • What does your risk profile say about you?
  • Some example allocations mentioned in the workbook!

Investment Philosophy:

  • What is it?
  • Set out your beliefs to generate your investment strategy
  • Investment beliefs – what do you believe investments are? What has your relationship been with investments?
  • What is the purpose for investing?
  • Combine your beliefs and purposes to form an investment philosophy

Investment Strategy:

  • What are your goals and timelines?
  • These will impact the next stage of your strategy
  • Work towards becoming more financially literate
  • What is your tolerance of volatility? How do you react to volatility?

Investment Plan

  • Figure out what you want you need first – Hardest part for some people to answer
  • Look at your expenses: What your ideal lifestyle costs?
  • Also, when do you want it by? Time matters thanks to inflation – $1 today is not $1 in 10 years
  • Reverse engineer your targets
  • Just do it – Action is more important than planning
  • Checklist – go through each option to implement
