What Is Financial Planning & Why Is It Important?

Client Centered

Financial planning is a process where we look at your current financial situation and develop a plan to reach your financial goals. It’s not just about crunching numbers. Financial planning is about putting measures in place to protect your loved ones, to prepare for the future, and even to pursue your passion right now.

Everything begins by understanding how you’ve made money decisions in the past and where you’d like to see yourself in the future. Then we tailor your financial plan specifically to your unique situation. Together, we envision where you’re headed and create the plan that gets you there. 

Different Types of Financial Planning

The financial plan we create for you today will be different from the financial plan you may need ten years from now. Naturally, your financial goals can change as you go through life. We help you stay on track with your goals without being stuck in a rigid plan that can’t be adapted to your circumstances. It’s a good idea to evaluate your financial goals every year and make adjustments as needed, and we can help you to perform those evaluations and adjustments to ensure you’re always moving in the right direction.

Financial planning is a comprehensive approach to handling your finances and preparing you for both the expected and unexpected hurdles you may encounter during your financial journey. A thorough financial plan can help you build up a nest egg for retirement while also reducing your taxable income now. It can include estate planning or how to make the most of your finances after a divorce. If you have a dependent with special needs, your financial planner can help you make provisions for them, too. In the end, your financial plan addresses your unique circumstances—both personal and financial—and gives you peace of mind by protecting your loved ones and growing your savings.

How Financial Planning Can Help You

Managing money isn’t a skill everyone is born with, especially when it comes to investing in your future. You make a lot of major decisions regarding your wealth throughout your life, but you don’t have to do it alone. You probably have some common questions about your current and future finances, including:

  • When should I start saving for retirement?
  • How can I pay for college for my child?
  • What should I invest in?
  • Can I afford a new place to live?
  • How can I save money on taxes?
  • How much life insurance do I need?
  • Should I sell my business?
  • How much money do I need to put away for retirement?

We can help you prioritize your financial goals. If you’re not used to putting money aside for retirement, it may take some time until you can ramp up your savings to the desired levels each month. We also understand the importance of security first. Saving for retirement may be at the top of your list, but adequate insurance must provide a sturdy foundation to protect yourself, your family, and your financial assets.

The best service we can provide to you is offering you clarity about your finances and what’s possible for your future. Don’t let chance decide how you spend your retirement years. It’s time to take positive action for your future.

How a Financial Planner Can Help You

Analyzing your options for retirement plans, college savings accounts, or reducing your taxable income is a time-consuming process. You may be familiar with the term IRA, but do you know how many options of individual retirement accounts exist? You can invest in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and any combination thereof. Some investments are riskier than others. Some come with higher fees. The possibilities of investing for your future are endless, and it’s difficult to discern which ones make the most sense for your financial situation and goals. 

We sort through it all and help you make the best choice for your specific circumstance. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to saving and investing. We are experts at what we do, and we can put together a financial plan for you—one that takes into consideration where you are now and where you want to be in the future. We won’t leave a stone unturned to find the best solution for your family, giving you clarity and the peace of mind that your money is working hard for you.
