This Sunday will mark the final outing of Sir Alex Ferguson as manager of Manchester United. After 26 years of unrivalled success, Sir Alex has proven that continuity can be vital to maximising your achievements. The strength of relationships between manager and players and knowledge of all members of the team is paramount in achieving their objectives. His ability to assess where each player fitted into his model – if indeed they still fit at all – and being able to move incompatible players out at the right time has been key to delivering such impressive results. Who expected Sir Alex to sell David Beckham when he did?
Financial planning and football are more alike than you may think. With clear financial objectives shared fully with your adviser, continuity and stability within the relationship can add a great deal of value. You need to trust in the skill of your adviser to recommend and monitor the continued suitability of your investments, monitor their performance and dispose of them should performance fall below your expectations or needs. As Sir Alex used his understanding of Manchester United’s players to build on his success, you should also understand your financial adviser to maximise your investment and retirement plans.
