What is Comprehensive Financial Planning?

It’s not uncommon for people to struggle to meet their short and long-term financial goals. In some cases, it’s difficult to even know what your financial planning goals should be! After all, there is lots of conflicting information out there. Trying to manage just one facet of your finances can be enough to confuse anyone, let alone trying to set up thorough, comprehensive financial planning to encompass multiple areas. This disconnect is where a fee-only financial planner can assist you.

Financial advisors who provide comprehensive financial planning services can help you to manage all aspects of your personal financial health, including:



Designing a financial strategy to meet your retirement goals



Managing your investments and recommending potential opportunities


Estate Planning

Creating an estate plan to ensure your beneficiaries are taken care of



Helping you design an appropriate budget for monthly expenses



Maximizing your tax deductions through effective strategies


Life Events

Assisting you with planning for common life events, such as college tuition, purchasing a home, or taking care of elderly parents

Ensuring that you have a solid financial plan in place can give you peace of mind for your future. Working with a financial advisor to overhaul your current financial practices is a great way to give you the motivation to achieve the financial security most of us are looking for.

To get started, you’ll want to locate a financial planner in your area who offers comprehensive financial planning services. They’ll speak with you to get a full picture of your current financials and understand what your potential needs are.

Prior to recommending any strategies, they’ll likely want to view your banking records, current investment activity, retirement savings, and insurance policies.

You will need to provide information about your family — whether you are married or have children. Your age is also an important factor when it comes to investments intended for retirement.

A good comprehensive financial plan can change the direction of your life and help you to establish the financial habits required to meet both short and long-term goals. Consider your financial advisor to be a partner who helps you realize your financial expectations.
