Financial planning is not one simple thing. It is a broad term used to encompass many aspects of creating financial health and well-being. Some of the main financial planning objectives include a retirement strategy, a risk management plan, a long-term investment plan, a tax reduction strategy, and an estate plan. Financial planning is essentially a step-by-step process in which a financial planner creates an individualized financial plan to help clients achieve their financial goals. A solid financial plan includes key components like budgeting, taxes, liquidity, large purchases, risk, return, retirement, communication, and record-keeping. It is important for the client to follow the advice of their financial planner to maximize the effectiveness of their financial planning strategies.
A financial planner is a professional qualified to help individuals and businesses meet their financial goals and objectives. Financial planners work with their clients to strategizeopportunities for improvement in overall financial health. A financial planner will analyze goals, risk tolerance, and stages of life to identify a proper individualized financial plan. Financial planners have suitable education, training, and experience in their field for their clients to have faith in their ability to help them succeed financially. Some financial planning professionals hold designations or certifications to show their level of qualification in specific areas. Many financial planners are fee-only financial planners, meaning they generally structure their earnings specifically around either an hourly rate, a fixed retainer, or a percentage of the assets they manage.
