What makes financial planning so important?

Manage your income scientifically

We use Cashcalc, a cash flow modelling software which gives a detailed picture of your assets, investments, debts, income, and expenditure, projected forward, year by year, using assumed rates of income, inflation, and interest rates to show how your finances will look up to age 100. This empowers you to make provisions & act accordingly to ensure you achieve your financial goals in the future.

Better prepared to deal with inflation

Inflation can have a significant impact on your ability to achieve your financial goals. Through a financial plan, we can help you allocate your assets to improve the chances of meeting your goals keeping in mind the rising cost of living, interest rate hikes & everything that is eating into your hard-earned money.

Save for the future

Saving money is one of the essential aspects of building wealth and having a secure financial future. Having a financial plan helps improve saving and budgeting habits that will have a profound effect on your finances in the long run.

Achieve your long-term goals

Some objectives are very crucial in our lives. Be it to own a house, build education funds for your children or retire early. Financial planning helps you devise an accurate plan to achieve your objectives in a specific amount of time.

    A goal without a plan is just a dream, so no matter what your goals are, we’re here to help you achieve them.

    What are the benefits to an askpaul financial plan for you?


    Most of the people that we see think that they have a handle on their current situation, but during an askpaul consultation our team of advisors go through your finances with a fine tooth comb , using our finance mapping software to apply the science to your incoming and outgoing. During this process we assess everything that your earning and paying for and provide direction on your finance leaks and financial gaps.

    Don’t worry, there’s no judgement from our advisors, if you like to shop online or eat out quite a bit, we’re not going to tell you how to spend your hard-earned income, BUT we will advise you how to shift your outgoings by creating a plan that focused on achieving all the “things” you want to.


    Here at askpaul we don’t believe in sacrificing the today you for the future you, a great financial plan allows you to enjoy life now while also providing for your future.

    Your personal consultation will focus on your current and future goals. No matter what they are our advisory team will build your financial plan around you (and any little you’s there may be) and all the things that you want to achieve, this year, next year and in the years to come.

    We’ll provide a path for you to achieve as many of the things you want to do.


    Most people assume that they would have to sacrifice their standard of living if they start budgeting & savings or investing for their long/short term financial goals. On the contrary, we design a financial plan where you would not need to compromise your lifestyle. It is possible to achieve your goals while living comfortably.


    It is possible to save a little money without having a financial plan, but we mostly find that  it may not be the most efficient way to go about it.

    When we create a financial plan for you, along with offering a good deal of insight into your income and expenses, we also help you track and cut down your costs consciously, switch to cheaper mortgage rates, better protection quotes & much more. This automatically increases your savings in the long run.


    Having the right kind of protection is a critical aspect of financial planning. We ensure that you & your family are protected with the right insurance policies based on your circumstances. This way, you don’t have to worry about managing expenses in case of a family emergency or a job loss.


    With adequate funds at hand, you can cover your monthly expenses, invest for your future goals and treat yourself & your family without worry. Financial planning helps you manage your money efficiently and enjoy peace of mind. We also review and monitor the plans every year to ensure that they are kept up to date and in line with your changing goals/needs.
