What is Financial Planning?
Financial planning is the process of meeting your life goals through the proper management of your finances. Life goals can include, among many things, saving for higher education, planning for retirement, properly planning your estate, or prudently managing your income tax situation.
The financial planning process takes a “big picture” look at where you are financially, enabling you to work out where you are now, what you may need in the future and what you must do to reach your goals.
The process involves gathering relevant financial information, setting life goals, examining your current financial status and coming up with a strategy or plan for how you can meet your goals.
The Benefits of Financial Planning
Financial planning provides direction and meaning to your financial decisions. It allows you to understand how each financial decision you make affects other areas of your finances. You can also adapt more easily to life changes and feel more secure that your goals are on track for the future.
