General Strategic Financial Services
Our job as financial coaches isn’t to tell you where you should be going. Instead, it’s to help guide you to where you want to go – towards your ultimate financial goal.
We help you identify your goals and then devise a ‘game plan’ to reach those goals, utilising tried and tested strategies and tactics. We will then ‘coach’ you along your journey to an enduring, secure and strong financial position.
‘What do you want from life?’
‘How do you want to go about achieving it?’
These are two key questions we will ask you as your financial coach. Remember, we’re not here to judge. In coaching terms, we don’t tell you ‘where to stand on the court’. However, we will show you the tactics you need to employ to reach your end game. We’ll help you attack your goals, rather than sit by defensively on the sidelines.
It’s important to us to build a relationship with our clients. We take a long-term view to our relationships, and through consistent discovery by asking the right questions and listening to your objectives, we gain a clearer understanding of what you want to achieve; and ultimately, how we’re going to help you get there. In simple terms, we’re involved.
In the game of tennis, a highly tactical sport, each stroke is designed to build upon the last, and each stroke must go through certain phases to be executed correctly. For example, a successful return depends on each phase being performed correctly. In business, and in life, the same applies. We will work with you to ensure your ‘technique’ and ‘stance’ are in the right position to maximise the return for your efforts.
There are various paths you can follow to reach your financial goals. As your financial coach, once we have helped establish your goals, we will identify the right steps and best fit for you, to make those goals a reality.
