Financial Planning for Young Adults

You may have only just started to make waves in your chosen career path or be on the cusp of building substantial savings to be looking into buying your first home, and feel like investing in your future is a daunting process. Alongside this, you may feel like approaching a Financial Planner for advice when you aren’t really sure what you even need advice on is stopping you from making decisions for your financial future.

Contrary to these fears, approaching an adviser for financial planning advice when you are a young adult does not have to be intimidating. By following a few tips on how to prepare for your consultation, you can begin planning how to navigate your future.

Why you should start financial planning now

Realistically, being in your twenties and thirties means financial future projections apply to you as much as, if not more than, an age bracket that currently has more financial considerations. The housing market, economic situation, student loan repayments and choosing the right savings plan for you are just some of the significant aspects of your future that the earlier you focus on, the better.

Aspects of financial planning for consideration as a young adult

To begin with, having a good general idea of your future goals is beneficial for a financial adviser to direct you towards the right areas for help with your financial planning. For example, approaching an adviser with questions on investment goals, pension plans and savings will help lead the conversation towards creating a plan that works best for you. Do your research, but do not panic if you are unsure, an adviser can help you structure short and long-term goals.

Ask the right questions, and ‘shop the adviser’. This planner will be analysing many aspects of your finances and advising on lifestyle choices to meet your goals, so knowing what you want to get out of the partnership will help you choose the right adviser for you. Ensure you know what general aspects you would like advice on and select a financial adviser with this in their area of expertise.
