What is Financial Planning?

FPA research shows that three quarters of Australians have experienced financial difficulty1 at some point. While household wealth is rising, so too is our cost of living, credit card debt, and many Australians struggle to afford the home they want.

Now more than ever, Australians need good financial advice. Good financial advice helps you make the most of what you have while you creating a comfortable future for you and your family.

Good financial advice is also about providing you with the information you need to move in the direction you want to head. That's why seeing a professional financial planner can make a huge difference to your financial future.

A financial planner can help you make financial decisions to give you peace of mind, because good advice is money well spent. The definition of Financial Planning.

The definition of Financial Planning.

Financial planning is the process of developing strategies to help you manage your financial affairs so you can build wealth, enjoy life and achieve financial security.

Some people may think that financial planners only give advice on investments. This is not true. The role of a qualified professional financial planner is to look at all aspects of your lifestyle, goals and requirements and develop a financial strategy suitable for you. The recommended strategy should help you reach your financial goals effectively and efficiently. Advice falls into two areas: general or personal:

General advice is on financial products but does not take into account your personal circumstances.

The term gearing refers to the process of borrowing money to invest. Negative gearing for tax purposes, occurs when the deductible expenses associated with an investment, including interest on the money borrowed, are greater than the assessable income earned from the investment.

This means that you are making an income loss on the investment. Because this loss is generally tax deductible, your tax liability on other assessab;e income may be reduced, thus reducing the effect of the overall loss on your cashflow.

In the long-term it is expected that the total returns from the investment, including capital growth, will be greater than the short-term income losses. However, if sufficient capital growth does not occur you may be worse off overall.

Investors should understand that while negative gearing can be an effective means of increasing returns, it also carries with it the risk of increasing your losses. Careful consideration and planning should be undertaken before you borrow to negatively gear.
