With a good financial plan in place, you’re already well positioned for a rewarding financial future. What’s more, it means you’ll be better prepared for major life events when they arise. As JFK once said, ‘there is nothing more certain and unchanging than uncertainty and change.’ In other words, none of us knows what the future holds.

But that doesn’t mean you should leave things to chance, especially when it comes to your finances. Of course, everyone’s financial journey is different, but here are some major life events that many of us can prepare for in advance. And even if some of these milestones are already behind you, the next generations can benefit from your guidance and experience, and the lessons you’ve learned along the way.

Stay tuned for our 5 part series covering Starting a family, Buying property, Getting a wealth boost, Becoming a grandparent and Retiring
