Why invest with us?
Some investors may have goals such as ensuring they have enough income to live off in retirement and ensuring their money grows so that they can afford to take regular holidays in retirement. Alternatively, they might like to do all of that and also leave some money for their children or grandchildren.
Just as you may have different bank accounts for different purposes, such as a savings account or a holiday account, it makes sense that your clients may be invested in different investments aimed at meeting different goals.
Once your clients' goals are identified you can then look to investment solutions that are targeted at meeting those particular goals.
A goals-based approach to investing is beneficial to investors because it puts them in the driver’s seat as they are actively involved in the decision making process. The success of a goals-based strategy is not about outperforming benchmarks or competitors. Success is measured by how well an investor’s portfolio is tracking against a stated goal. It’s about being more relevant to investors and their needs, not only in terms of product design but in terms of communications and reporting.
By focusing on how an investment is on track to meet investors’ needs, it should help investors fight the urge to respond inappropriately and irrationally when markets aren’t performing as they might expect.
The three broad categories
Although people may have very different goals depending on what life stage they are at, their goals can be broadly categorised into essential needs, lifestyle wants and legacy aspirations.
The majority of people’s money is generally focused around this goal. Investment solutions for these needs will aim to deliver a predictable, regular, sustainable income stream that is expected to rise with inflation over time.
Helping your clients live the life they want. For many clients, maintaining their lifestyle in retirement is very important. Investment solutions for these goals will generally aim to grow people’s wealth steadily over time while looking to soften the impact of severe market falls.
Helping your clients leave the legacy that they want. With their essential needs already met, people may look to maximise the growth of any money they have set aside. Investment solutions for these goals will be higher growth solutions and look to grow people’s money over the long term.
These simple and straightforward range of funds have been designed to help your clients meet specific goals such as generating a regular reliable income in retirement or providing for future generations.
