Financial planning for peace of mind

When it comes to your money, you want to know it’s in good hands. There’s a lot to consider when it comes to managing it, protecting it, and keeping your finances on track. Partnering with a Momentum financial adviser can help steer you in the right direction to achieve your financial goals, and help you avoid the pitfalls of investing on your own. In the long term, the money you invest in expert, professional financial advice will be paid back many times over.

Retirement planning to secure your financial future

By giving your retirement policy time to grow, you benefit from the power of compound interest to ensure you’re financially secure in your retirement years. Select from a range of investment funds managed by leading South African fund managers. Contributions are tax deductible within limits, meaning the money you would have paid to SARS can now grow in a retirement annuity. Investment returns don’t attract any tax – making your money grow faster than other investment vehicles.

What does your success look like?
