How much is enough?

Just like the majority of people you probably have no idea how much money you need for the rest of your life. You may have high levels of income, various assets and investments but no idea what it all means, or what sort of financial future awaits you.

So, if you feel like this, you’re not alone! The big question is: are you going to run out of money? Or die with too much?!

How much money do you need for the rest of your life?

What we all need to know is how much is ‘ENOUGH?’

Having enough money can mean different things to different people. When planning for retirement, it could involve having sufficient funds to maintain your desired lifestyle, cover essential expenses, and enjoy extensive travel without financial stress. It’s about achieving a balance between financial security and the ability to pursue personal goals and aspirations.

The concept of “enough” money doesn’t necessarily mean you have no aspirations for more. It means you realise that an unquenchable thirst for more wealth will end up with you taking too much risk and potentially losing everything you have worked hard for pushing you to the point of regret.

If you don’t yet have enough or on course to have enough then you need to know how much to save, earn or sell your business so that you can have enough to live a 3 or 4 decade retirement.

Knowing what you actually need can be enlightening. It can put you in control. Knowing how much is enough will give you the freedom to live your life better. After all, life isn’t a rehearsal. We don’t know how long we have left. We will let you know how much your ‘ENOUGH’ is so that you can live your life, so you never have to say “If only I had…”

Who we work with

We want to be sure we can provide the standard of excellence and service that our clients deserve. That’s why we are careful about only working with those clients for whom we can provide our very best work.

Our clients work with us because they value a long-term, meaningful relationship and an extraordinary, personalised service. They engage us to help them achieve goals and aspirations that mean something in their life. And that is what we always strive to deliver.

That means if you’re looking for a one-off piece of transactional financial advice, we may not be the right fit for you.

Our services are best suited to:

  • Are company directors / senior executives / partners in a professional practice
  • Business owners, or
  • Are widowed
  • Are saving for future plans or preparing for retirement
  • Have a good lifestyle and want to protect it
  • Would like some professional and personal guidance on how to help you get the best from your life with the money you have

Mostly, we meet new clients at a crossroads in their life; they are looking to make changes or overcome worries about the future.

Our services are therefore designed for clients who are facing key life decisions, are looking for some professional and personal guidance on how to help you get the best from their life with the money they have and who may need existing assets realigned into a comprehensive lifestyle financial plan.

If you’re unsure whether our services are right for you, get in touch and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

How we can help

A financial plan will help you get the most from selling your business. You will know how much you need for the rest of your life.

Having spent more than 22 years working with business owners, we are uniquely positioned to help ensure you obtain a fair valuation for the business you have spent so long creating.

We work with independent practice valuation specialists who work for you to secure the best possible price and we will help you prepare for the sale with business coaching and advice on the legal and financial aspects of your exit strategy.

But more than that, as Lifestyle Financial Planners, we’ll help you find the number that works for you both professionally and personally, by looking at the bigger picture of where your business sale fits into your lifestyle plans.
