This is your life

In your 30s you might be thinking about settling down, buying a home and starting a family. Alongside progressing in your career, you’ve probably got a bit more disposable income too. Financial planning through this stage in life can help you build security for the future.

Career building

As you progress in your career and become more experienced, there’s a chance to build on your knowledge and professional development. You’ll probably have more financial responsibilities too.

Settling down

Getting married or deciding to settle down with your partner is a big life event. It’s also an opportunity to think about your finances and goals as you get a bit more settled.

Moving home

You could be ready to build equity by upsizing your home as your family grows. It’s likely to be your biggest investment and an opportunity to accumulate wealth.

Disposable income

Your 30s bring some financial confidence with disposable income to spend on entertainment and travel. This is also the stage where you could use some of that extra cash to invest for the long term.
