It’s Important to Have a Financial Plan

Why hire a financial planner? With an overwhelming number of options for saving and investing – and limited time to consider them all – managing your own finances can be difficult. Our clients are busy, successful people who need to focus on what they do best. So they hire us to help them get organized, stay organized and handle their financial planning and investment management needs.

Creating a financial plan helps you see the big picture and set both long-term and short-term life goals. It's a crucial step in mapping out your financial future. And it ensures that your financial life is organized today and always set up to support you tomorrow.

When you have a financial plan, it's easier to make financial decisions and stay on track to meet your goals. Working with a financial advisor can give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your financial future isn't left to chance.

And studies have shown that having a financial plan and a financial advisor to guide you can add significant value beyond market performance. (The studies include those from Evestnet, Russell Investments and Vanguard.)

The Benefits of Having a Financial Advisor

Among the key ways advisors can help clients:

  • Encouraging systematic savings and investing.
  • Coaching good investor behavior.
  • Making tax-efficient financial decisions.
  • Managing investments in a cost-effective manner.

Some people decide to do their own financial planning. But you may want to seek help from one of our financial advisors if you:

  • Want to better manage your finances, but aren't sure where to start.
  • Don't have time to do your own financial planning.
  • Want a professional opinion about the plan you've developed.
  • Don't have sufficient expertise in certain areas such as investments, insurance, taxes or retirement planning.
  • Have an immediate need or unexpected life event.

If any of the above situations apply to you, contact us for an initial consultation.
