Setting Financial Goals for 2018
Welcome to 2018!
It’s a new year and another great opportunity to get your financial situation in order and a key factor in doing that is to set financial goals. While setting these goals, there are essential factors that should be considered and here are 5 of them to help you:

Do a Financial Assessment

Evaluate your assets and liabilities; take a critical look at your savings, debts, and investments as they stand now then determine where you want them to be. Assessing your financial status may feel stressful, but gaining this knowledge will allow you to set realistic goals for the year.

Prepare a Budget

It’s important for you to set up a monthly budget and stick to it, this will help you maintain focus, manage your income stream and also curb impulsive buying.

Get out of Debt

Being debt-free is an incredible feeling and taking action to get there is another key step to taking control of your finances. By really focusing on getting out of debt you can reduce the amount you pay in interest and this will in turn give you more freedom. You can stop paying interest and start earning instead.

Save...Save, and...Save

We know this might sound a bit clichéd, but it is very important. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you have some spare money on you? Buy a new wrist watch, a 22-inch blonde hair or those killer shoes maybe? Sacrificing some of these pleasures would pay off in the long run, this year, cultivate the habit of saving. If you are struggling to find ways to save, you can start by cutting back on some of your expenses; curb some excesses. Saving can be more effective if you set a savings target as well; this shows you where you are going in relation to where you are. Knowing how far off you are will motivate you a lot more and help you reach your goals faster.


How you keep your saving is equally if not more important than the actual act of savings itself, investing allows you to grow your money at a much quicker rate. Some people have actually accumulated a lot of savings over the years but have no idea of what to do with it! Determine your risk appetite and put your money to work; after all you worked for it! Whatever your financial goals for 2018 may be, we are here to ensure that you are on track and to provide all the necessary support you need. Invest in AXA Mansard Mutual Funds with as little as ₦ 2,000.
