What are your financial goals?
You should write down your goals and time frames to achieve them.
Your goals might include things such as:
- Saving for a home deposit
- Saving for school fees
- Making sure your family is financially secure
- When you want to retire
- How much income you think you will need when you retire
Your life stages will dictate what you want in the short, medium and long term. Examples of life stages are:
- Young and Single
- In a Relationship
- Relationship with Young Children
- Relationship with Adult Children
Your goals will be different to other peoples goals, but to increase the probability of achieving them, these goals should be measurable, achievable and realistic. There are some tools below to help you with the process of identifying your goals.
