Most people haven’t taken the time to create a financial plan – a comprehensive overview that includes an individual’s or a family’s statement of objectives for short- and long-term financial wellbeing, as well as a savings and investment strategy in order to achieve that goal. Creating a financial plan is something that an individual can do solo; however, working with a skilled professional with experience in the financial industry may offer a significant advantage.
Remember, a financial plan should be comprehensive. This means that it should account for all of your sources of income as well as your expenses, as well as consider various different investment strategies and events that will affect your finances in the future. The steps of a financial plan include:
While you may be able to calculate your net worth without the help of a professional, as well as outline some of your goals that will require money to achieve–like retiring at age 65–where you may struggle is in understanding the savings and investment strategies that will get you there.
