As the festive season draws to a close, now is the time to stop scrolling through social media in search of motivation and inspiration and make a start on the New Year’s Resolutions that will shape your future.
The most common resolutions, such as losing weight or learning a new skill are all well and good but the most valuable resolution you can make as an expat is to sort your retirement plans. Especially when you are most likely earning more and paying less taxes.
We may all be living longer, but this shouldn't mean you have longer to start planning for the future. While the best time to start might be yesterday, today is the next best time.
Use this new year as a point to consider your short, medium and long-term investing goals. Focus on the reasons why you are investing and devise a strategy to help you build a pot that allows you to achieve your retirement goals.
Conversely, if you already have a plan in place, now is the perfect opportunity to review whether your investments are performing as well as you thought they were.
92% of New Year’s Resolutions fail, and the biggest reason for this is the lack of a plan. Fortunately, GWM GS's team of experienced Financial Advisers are on hand to help you create the perfect Wealth Management strategy that will not only look after you during retirement but throughout your life.
