What is Financial Planning?
Financial Planning is much more than investing; it considers all the pieces of your financial life, from budgeting and retirement planning, to saving for education and managing taxes. Understanding how to bring all the pieces of your financial life together is a challenging task.
Why a Financial Planner?
A financial adviser is a professional who renders financial services to clients. That broad definition would include a lot of individuals who deal with the money side of life—from lawyers to CPAs to insurance agents, not all of whom are qualified to provide an extensive range of long-term financial advice. A Certified Financial Planner Certification (CFP®) is granted by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. and is your assurance that the certificate holder has completed the comprehensive course of study at a college or university with a curriculum approved by the CFP® Board and passed the required exams in the areas of the financial planning process, tax planning employee benefits and retirement planning, estate planning, investment management and insurance, and fulfill the required work experience in the financial planning process. You may find a CFP® professional can provide assistance in:
- Defining your personal financial goals
- Analyzing your current financial status
- Providing guidance or advice in various financial planning related topics
- Helping you meet an immediate or unexpected financial need or plan for a future life event
