In this episode, Kate was joined by Louise Oliver, a Certified Financial Planner and Chartered Wealth Manager to discuss financial planning and divorce during a cost-of-living crisis.

Kate and Louise begin this episode by discussing the value a financial planner can bring to discussions during a separation and that when you go through a divorce financial advice can be particularly useful. Louise explains the importance of being pragmatic, and willing to tweak your agreements as you move through the process.

They look at the impact of fluctuating asset valuations, especially during a cost-of-living crisis, and the importance of making sensible investments that reflect your attitude to risk. Louise emphasises the point that different types of assets react differently to the varying market conditions and the importance of having a mix of different assets when you separate finances after divorce. They also explore options around the family home, maintenance payments and pensions.
