Two very good reasons why you should save:

  1. Building an emergency fund - it's important to have the safety net of an emergency fund for those unplanned events life tends to throw at you - losing your job, expensive house repairs.

  2. Creating a nest egg - vital to make those planned events happen, such as getting married, saving for a home and the ever growing expense of sending your children to university.

By putting aside some money for the future, it will help you feel a whole lot more comfortable. As Spike Milligan once said "Money can't buy you happiness, but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery".

It makes sense to get advice from a financial adviser if you're looking for a plan that's tailored to your specific needs and goals.

A financial adviser will also have the expertise and up-to-date knowledge to help find you better options.  Bear in mind, you will have to pay for any advice you receive.

Why you should seek advice

Working with a financial adviser who is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) can:

  • give you impartial advice to make sure you get the best deal, whether it's a Zurich product or not

  • help you gather all the information you need

  • help you understand all the little details and things you need to consider

  • work with you throughout the lifetime of the plan to make sure it still meets your needs

  • give you a greater level of protection if things go wrong. If an FCA-authorised firm gives you advice that's wrong for your circumstances, there's a system to resolve complaints and, if necessary, put things right.

Preparing for your visit with a financial adviser

It's a good idea to prepare before you speak to a financial adviser. For a start, take a look at 'Things to consider before you speak to a financial adviser'

If you haven't got a financial adviser, you can find one near you at [Zurich is not responsible for the content of external websites]

While you can manage your plan yourself, it's a good idea to look at your plan with your financial adviser once a year, or more often if you hit one of life's big events.
