When you’re in your 20’s & 30’s

Life is all about choices.

If you are in your 20’s and 30’s you will have experienced how access to money can affect the number or quality of choices you have.

We see a lot of people in their 20’s and 30’s who are making choices on:

  • Where to live
  • Whether to buy or rent
  • When to start a family
  • What career paths you follow
  • Where and how often you travel & explore the world
  • What type of transport you use
  • How much education or training you receive
  • What hobbies you can afford
  • Starting up your own businesses

Time stops for no man or woman and with or without planning or preparation these choices will be made. Sometimes you get to make a choice, other times choices are made for you.

The difference between you planning, and not planning, is how well you can accommodate the choices you want in a time frame of your choosing.

Even a small amount of financial planning can help you widen the choices you have available for yourself over the next 5 to 10 years, giving your future self a better chance at making a choice which is closer to what you really want.

Our style of financial planning is all about strategies that help enable future choices.

Ilink Wealth encourages you to discover what your future choices are and put a plan together to help you achieve it. We use logic, knowledge and skill in the field of investments, tax, insurance and finance to put together a financial plan that aims to strengthen your financial standing in the future.

We don’t mind what choices you make in life, but we do care you have the luxury of choice.

Your next step is a meeting with one of our financial planners. It will take about 1hr, and we can start the process of finding out what you want to achieve in the future.
