Seafarers are in a disadvantaged group right from the start of their careers. While spending a considerable amount of time at sea, an average sailor is a little naive to the requirements of the family and worldly life, especially when it comes to financial planning.
Owing to frantic schedules while on board and regular trainings and courses while on land, a seafarers simply doesn’t have adequate time to properly think about his/her finances.
Though enough has been said and written on the subject of financial planning in various books, there is little penetration of financial instruments in the life of a seafarer.
So an ideal seafarer works throughout his life, providing for parents, siblings, wife and children, slogging at sea and often ending up with no or negligible savings, which pushes him to go for sailing again.
As a result, essential time is lost when a lot of contribution can be made to his savings. By the time he realises about the amount of money needed, he already has a family and several expenses to shoulder.
