Why is financial planning important?

  • “A comprehensive financial plan serves as the framework for organizing the way you handle finances. With a financial plan in place, you’ll be better able to focus on your goals and understand what it will take to reach them. It will clearly show you how those goals are related, such as, how saving for your children’s college education might impact your ability to save for retirement. Then you can use that information to decide on how to prioritize your goals, implement specific strategies, and choose the best products and services. Best of all, you’ll know that your financial life is headed in the right direction.”

The financial planning process:

  • Creating and implementing a financial plan generally involves working with professionals to:
    • Develop a clear picture of your financial situation by reviewing your income, assets, and liabilities, and evaluating your insurance coverage, investments, tax exposure, and estate.
    • Establish and prioritize goals and time frames for achieving them.
    • Put into practice strategies that address your financial weaknesses and build on your strengths.
    • Choose specific products and services that are fitted to help meet your financial objectives.
    • Monitor and make adjustments to your plan as your goals, time frames, and circumstances change.
