"Financial Planning Is About You and Your Life" Wealth Management & Financial Planning The financial plan serves as the game plan for each client as to how they should invest the asset they have worked so hard to accumulate. Regardless of your net worth, financial planning and wealth management is about going from where you are, to where you want to be, in the most efficient manner possible. "Comprehensive Financial Planning is more than the active management of investments. It is more than the creation of a retirement plan and it goes well beyond regular check-ups of a portfolio. Truly Comprehensive Financial Planning is the act of planning for, and prudently addressing life events. It addresses everything from buying a new car or home, to planning for a child's education, preparing for eventual retirement or creating a plan for your estate. But it goes well beyond these basic life events... It also addresses potential events that can drastically alter your long-term financial security. This is truly Comprehensive Financial Planning." -The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors Is your portfolio at the appropriate risk level for your comfort AND your financial plan needs?
