What is lifelong cashflow modelling?
It’s the very heart of financial planning. It takes all the detailed assumptions for what you earn, spend, own, and owe now and in the future, including your short and long terms goals and dreams, and shows you in a simple chart whether you’re on track or not, no matter what happens. It projects different outcomes when the assumptions are tweaked.
