What Is Financial Planning & Why Do You Need It?

<br data-mce-bogus="1">

Financial planning is the process of creating a road map for building, maintaining, and helping to grow your wealth. It starts with taking a snapshot of your current finances, discussing your goals and objectives for your future, and developing a plan that helps you get there. By working with our financial planners, you can take control of your financial life.

Finances are complex, and it’s not just about what product or services to invest in. It’s important to evaluate your insurance coverages to protect the wealth you’ve worked so hard to build. Our financial planners also think about the tax implications of your investment decision to help you keep more of your assets.

Benefits of Having a Financial Plan

There are many benefits to making a financial plan. With a plan in place, you can better prepare for the future and know what to expect. Here are some other advantages to financial planning:

  • Help minimize taxes
  • Plan for retirement
  • Give to charities while reaping tax benefits
  • Manage your investment continuously
  • Protect your wealth with the right insurance coverage

A comprehensive financial plan makes provisions for different scenarios, protecting you and your loved ones. It also helps you give more to your favorite charities while saving on taxes. Planning for retirement is an important part of financial planning, too. This includes calculating your expected living expenses and setting up different income streams during retirement. Finally, your financial advisor can manage your investments for you, keeping you on track with your goals and objectives.

Elements of a Financial Plan

A financial plan can include many things, and it will probably change over the years. At first, you may focus on your retirement plan. After building significant wealth, an estate plan could become the focus. All throughout, you’ll probably engage in tax planning to help minimize your tax burden and help maximize what you keep and invest. We also recommend evaluating your insurance policies regularly to make sure you’re still protected.

Everyone needs a financial plan tailored uniquely to them. You can’t copy what your neighbor is doing, because your situations are not the same. And even if you were living identical lives as far as family size and income go, you probably have different dreams for the future and a different tolerance for risk. We customize your financial plan to meet your unique needs.
