Investment Planning: Make Smart Investment Decisions Today

Making smart decisions about investment planning is essential for achieving your financial goals. It involves setting a destination, determining the route to get there, and understanding your risk tolerance. 

To start, it’s important to assess your current financial situation and settle what kind of investments are right for you. Then, creating an investment plan that outlines how much you’ll invest in each asset class and when you’ll rebalance your portfolio, sounds easy right?

Careful consideration and research can help you make smart investment decisions today that will pay off in the future. However, if you don’t do your due diligence, you may not be able to achieve the desired results. Get yourself a professional, like us – so you can take your finances to new heights.

How Investment Planning Can Help You Reach Your Financial Goals

Investment planning involves setting a strategy for investing your money in order to better manage your finances. Investment planning helps you identify what investments are best suited for your individual needs, and how much risk you are willing to take on in order to achieve those goals.

Creating an investment plan can be a complex process, so it’s important to consider many factors before getting started. At 4 Financial Planning, we help you carefully craft your plan, tailored to your individual situation and goals.

Our 4 Stage Step to Financial Planning




This meeting is held at our cost. Depending on how much we talk it is likely to last between 30 minutes and 1 hour. This is a two-way process, where we both find out about the other. By the end we should have the answers to some important questions:

  • Why do you think you need a financial planner?
  • Do you actually need one?
  • What are you looking to achieve?
  • What’s going to stop you?
  • And most importantly, do we get on?




We gather hard facts on your whole financial situation, income, expenditure and assets and combine this with softer stuff, like financial goals, retirement plans and how you want to help your kids.

During a second meeting we look at the results, and you’ll get a one-page plan covering the 4 major areas:

  1. What happens if you die? (protection/estate planning)
  2. Are you on track to meet your short-term goals (school/university fees/debt repayment)?
  3. Are you on track to meet your long-term goals (retirement)?
  4. Are you missing anything (tax allowances)?




It may be the case that you get a completely clean bill of health from the X-ray. But, if there are areas which need action, we will make recommendations for improvement.

This could be pensions, investments (such as ISAs), insurance to ensure your loved ones are looked after, or changes to your current investment strategy so it is better aligned to your circumstances.




The minute you walk out of our meeting your plan is out of date. Circumstances change: yours, the financial markets, the economy and tax legislation. That’s why it’s important to review your plan regularly.
