Financial Insights & Updates - October 2020


Welcome to the October edition of Financial Insights and Updates.

The difficulties in understanding and achieving a successful financial plan more often than not can be attributed to assigning priorities to your own hierarchy of financial needs. During these times of uncertainty, it is vital that individuals have a framework that accounts for changing life circumstances, such as a new job or purchasing a house and therefore the importance of having a robust financial plan is paramount.

With the above statement I mind we have provided an interesting article that draws on the world renowned work of behavioural scientist Abraham Maslow who in 1943 argued that humans worldwide are influenced by a ‘hierarchy of needs’.

This theory organises human needs across five levels, where needs in the lower end must be satisfied before progressing onto the next level. At one end are physiological needs such as sleep and shelter, while at the other end are esteem and self-actualisation. If we convert that theory into a financial context then as individuals move up each rung of the financial needs pyramid, they must also recognise how their tactics might need to change to best pursue their financial goals.

We would encourage you to read each of the subsequent articles we have provided, especially the ‘Identifying Your Stage on the Investor Lifecycle’ because each article can in some way be linked to this financial needs pyramid.

Remember that you are always welcome to give us a call if you would like to further discuss anything you have read.

Warm regards,
