ABOUT THE PLANNING PROCESS
The financial planning process begins with a series of meetings that allow the potential client to understand how financial planning works, what can be expected in the first few years and how the planning process transforms from a generalized concept to a very hands-on, client focused, personalized service.
The first year of financial planning consists of four general stages:
- 1 -
Discuss your financial goals and concerns
Prioritize your goals
Develop an understanding of what finances mean to you
Learn how financial planning plays a role in reaching your goals
- 2 -
Review your financial resources
Discuss your cash flow and financial habits
Consider ways to maximize income and cash flow
Discover areas of opportunity
- 3 -
Determine strategies to help make goals more obtainable
Discuss solutions to financial shortfalls and relevant tasks needed to reach a satisfactory result
Collaborate to determine the most comfortable methods to complete financial tasks
Determine the roles all involved parties will take to complete financial tasks
- 4 -
Regular meetings to review tasks and progress on financial strategies
Discuss progress of strategies and be proactive on making necessary changes
Adjust plan to accommodate changes in life, changes to goals or changes to financial climates
Plan accordingly as you transition from one stage of your financial life to the next
