Financial Planning - Chartered Financial Services in Warren NJ Through effective financial planning, you can immediately build confidence with your personal finances and start to find the financial strength you need – and not just for your retirement. A managed plan can help you to build financial stability now and in the long term. What is a Financial Plan? A well-advised financial plan is more than setting a household budget. It’s a comprehensive process that considers your current and future financial stability. This analysis begins by taking a look at the assets you own, what you plan to own, your age, your withdrawal plans and your cash flow. It also goes deeper with a look at your income, investment strategy, debt level and tax liabilities. That information forms the foundation of your wealth-building plan. What does it do for you? Having a formalized plan helps empower you to achieve your financial goals, which may include everything from building wealth now to leaving a legacy for your loved ones. Your plan will set financial benchmarks and can provide you a path to achieve them through various means such as improving your stock and bond portfolios, optimizing your asset allocation, incorporating life insurance and more. Unlike retirement planning, which focuses on building wealth for your retirement years, a financial plan offers a comprehensive strategy, allowing you to access your funds now and during retirement. It also aids in developing a plan for your estate. Why Should You Have a Financial Planner? Having goals and a path to them is ideal, but creating that path, brick by brick, can be complicated. And, your plan may change frequently. Having a financial planner can ensure there’s an expert to help you make adjustments as necessary. Stock market fluctuation, political unease and your own changing needs can alter your plan. A financial planner stays the course and helps you to achieve your goals one step at a time.
