What is a Financial Planner?

A Financial Planner is someone who is able to comprehend the emotions behind a client's goals and concerns and links them to their holistic financial picture. Creates a detailed plan with the help of experience and software, and ultimately seeks to guide the client to that destination with tailored recommendations. These plans can include investment planning, retirement planning, insurance planning, small business planning, education planning, tax & estate strategies. A financial Planner seeks to understand the clients goals and objectives, and develop a personalized plan to achieve those goals.
