Investment Management

At 3D Financial Planning, we take a comprehensive approach to investment management, ensuring that our clients’ financial goals align with their risk tolerance and capacity for loss.

We start by gaining a comprehensive understanding of your financial position. We carefully assess how your wealth is currently managed and identify areas for improvement.

We then develop a plan to help align your money and investments with your specific personal goals, considering factors such as time scale, risk tolerance, and liquidity preferences. This tailored strategy ensures that your financial decisions are in sync with your unique aspirations and needs.

Risk Profiling

We recognise that assessing risk is not a one-dimensional concept. Therefore, we split the risk profile into two essential components: Attitude to investment risk, which is subjective and influenced by personal preferences and beliefs, and capacity for loss, which is an objective assessment of how much volatility an individual’s financial circumstances can withstand.

Before making any investment recommendation, we engage in open and transparent discussions with our clients, ensuring they have a clear understanding of their risk profile. This ensures that the investment strategy we propose is aligned with their financial aspirations and tolerance for market fluctuations.

The portfolios we recommend are carefully crafted to be diversified and well-balanced, spreading our clients’ investments across a wide range of asset classes, sectors, and geographical regions. By doing so, we aim to mitigate risk and enhance the potential for returns. The diverse asset allocation typically includes equities, property, cash, fixed income securities, commodities, and alternative investments.

Ongoing Reviews

As part of our commitment to our clients’ financial well-being, we continuously monitor their investments to ensure they remain within their agreed risk level. We conduct regular reviews to reassess their risk profile and to ensure that the investment strategy remains in line with their evolving financial goals and life circumstances.

At 3D Financial Planning we prioritise our clients’ financial security and long-term success, and our diligent investment process reflects our dedication to achieving these objectives. With our expertise and personalised approach, we aim to help our clients navigate the complexities of the financial markets and achieve a secure and prosperous future.
