We all have financial concerns, and a financial plan will bring those concerns to the surface and provide the means to address them.
A “Financial Plan” is a framework of your financial situation. It assesses where you currently stand, defines what you are trying to achieve, and provides direction to financial decisions.
Financial Planning is the process of building that framework. It involves gathering all the needed information, working though setting goals and objectives, and then using the framework to guide decisions about risk management, investments, taxes, large expenses, insurance, debt, and legacy issues.
