What Is Financial Planning & Why Is It Important?

Financial planning is all about creating a roadmap for your assets. Having a financial plan is even more important if you don’t have any assets. Without a financial plan, you’re not likely to build wealth. Financial planning also includes preparing for retirement, saving for college or a new home, and eliminating debt. 

Your financial plan should be a comprehensive roadmap to manage your money now and in the future. When we build a customized financial plan just for you, we consider your short- and long-term objectives. Together, we create a strategy that will set you up for financial success, allowing you to live the life you want.

Why Financial Planning Should Be Your Priority

FAQs about Financial Planning

Who Should Have a Financial Plan?

Most people can benefit from having a financial plan. If you want to build wealth, eliminate debt, save for retirement, or prepare your kids for college, a financial plan can help you accomplish your goals. Without a plan, it’s more difficult to take the right steps with your money. If it’s been a while since you made a financial plan or there have been major changes in your life, it’s probably a good idea to revisit and adjust your financial strategy.

When Should I Start Retirement Planning?

The sooner you plan for retirement, the easier it will be to build wealth. Ideally, people should plan for retirement as soon as they earn a paycheck. If you haven’t made planning for retirement a priority, it’s still not too late to get started. Our team can help you create a retirement savings strategy to help you create an income stream when you’re ready to retire. 

How Much Money Do I Need to Retire?

Everyone has different financial needs in retirement. If you want to travel the world or retire early, you need to build a bigger nest egg than someone who still plans to work part-time after they retire. How much you need also depends on your cost of living. Our financial advisors can help you determine a target income to aim for during retirement. 

Do I Need a Financial Advisor?

Having a financial advisor by your side makes it easier to plan for your financial future. Our financial advisors have the knowledge and experience to help you make the best decisions for your financial future. Figuring out what to do with your money isn’t easy, which is why you want to work with a financial expert.
