A New Year can bring a new outlook, new opportunities and new chances to improve your financial standing. As we welcome a new year, it is worth considering how you want to make the most of the next 12 months. A New Year is an opportunity and you may even say New Year’s Day represents page one. All the pages are blank to begin with and you now have the chance to write all the chapters and make this year a classic. You also have a chance to write a new chapter in your financial life by making the most of opportunities that may make the years ahead even better for you.

The New Year is a wonderful time for recommitting ourselves to things that are important to us. What could be more impactful than a fresh start and starting anew? With 2018 here, this can be an optimum time to set your goals and refine your investment philosophy and goals. The New Year tends to signify a fresh start and leaves us open to new possibilities, strategies and aspirations. If you set aside time to plan, it can set the tone for the entire year. This small practice can allow you to make decisions and goals that are in line with your vision, and that ultimately will impact your year to allow some meaningful change. You may want to reflect on the following as you begin the year:

What are your goals for the Year? Not only do you want to reflect on financial goals, but any goal you’d like to work toward or achieve in the New Year that may have financial consequences. For example, during the past year did you get married or divorced, have a child, decide to work less, change jobs or change short-term or long-term goals?

What’s truly important to you and your family? Setting specific goals and scheduling dedicated time to achieve them is a powerful tool for realizing those goals. It not only clarifies what you have to do financially to achieve the goals, it prompts you to achieve them within a specific time. Review the goals you had last year, refresh what you are focusing on, restructure your investments and schedule dedicated time with your advisor to prepare.
