Enjoy the fruits of your labour

There are lots of opportunities in your 40s and early 50s to spend what you’ve earned while progressing in your career. If you have children then you’ll be balancing their financial needs with your own, which might include looking at the investment options available to grow your wealth.

A maturing family

Children are becoming a little less dependent – though maybe not financially just yet. This stage in life offers plenty of chances to consider all your financial needs.

Peak earning and dual incomes

Dual incomes and peak earnings during your 40s and early 50s provide a chance to reflect on what you have – by spending what you’ve earned and investing for the future.

Reducing mortgage debt

You’re likely to enjoy lower mortgage repayments in your 40s and early 50s, leaving you with the financial flexibility to explore investment opportunities.

Travel and leisure spending

You’re likely to be enjoying spending time with your family on holidays and social activities together. Your home may also benefit from extra spending, as your family’s needs evolve.
