Financial Planning Services – Bolingbrook, Illinois

The most typical misconception regarding financial planning is that it is centered on investing. Needless to say investing is a part of financial planning as one should make intelligent investment choices, but there is a lot more to it. Financial Planning is the method of creating strategies to help you control your financial affairs efficiently and meet financial goals. It's a holistic process that helps you make better decisions by turning vague goals into concrete plans, giving a map for action. Having a financial plan - and sticking with it - gives you a true advantage when it comes to planning your retirement and other long-term financial and life goals.

Retirement Planning/Children's Education Funds - Bolingbrook, Illinois

Frequently people say that they're saving for retirement or saving for their child's education. They could be seen as precise goals, however they are really quite vague. Financial planning can find the key numbers - How much should you save and also by when? If you aren't sure whether you'll have enough to live on post-retirement, it can create stress and anxiety. But when you know what you have to do and that you are following the financial plan, it provides peace of mind and assurance. Whenever your situation changes from single to married, from renting to buying a house, having children or caring for aging mothers and fathers, financial planning will help you make better-informed choices.

Certified Financial Planners - Bolingbrook, Illinois

Most people don't have limitless resources. In such a scenario, Financial Planning through a Certified Financial Planner can provide advice on how best to make informed choices and prudently use the limited resources for attaining financial freedom. Say, if you have identified retirement and funding your son or daughter's education as your financial goals, but you only have Rs. 1,000 extra every year to achieve these goals, a Certified Financial Planner will help you select among your priorities. Whatever you decide, you'll have the secure feeling of knowing that a professional has reviewed your circumstances and that you are doing something beneficial for your financial predicament. Financial planning offers a map with an action plan that - if followed faithfully - will take you where you want to go financially.

Missing the big picture is an issue seen all too often with clients. If you are devoted to the near-term rather than on much wider long-term implications, then you might wind up impairing the accumulation of wealth. For example, counting on pre-tax returns for financial decision-making rather than understanding that different types of investments are subject to differing tax rates might be harmful for your financial wellness. A Certified Financial Planner will make you understand that the kind of investment you choose affects the after-tax return. Don't forget, it isn't about the returns an investment generates; it's about the net income that comes in your hands. Many of you fail to realize the delayed tax implications on the foreseeable future nest eggs. It's pre-tax returns you're concerned with and you fail to realize that there will be a drag on the ultimate amount of money you will have because of the tax liability that is awaiting you.

Impact of Financial Planning - Bolingbrook, Illinois

The impact of sound financial planning on overall financial well-being is multifold and multidimensional. In fact if you think of your financial life as a flywheel, with financial planning as the center, each of the various aspects of your financial life - like buying a house, saving for retirement, planning for children's education, owning your favorite luxury car, debt management and so on - are spokes to the wheel. Once you begin to make progress along every one of those spokes, you'll start to gain traction all round, and you'll see your ability to recognize your financial goals really start to take off. Further, we all know that one of the greatest causes of stress and conflict in relationships is money. Individuals and families who have planned out a financial path appreciate greater well-being, worry less, sleep better and have vibrant relationships.

Financial Planning can be a life process. Preferably, you should meet a financial planner as early as possible in your lifetime and establish a long-term relationship. Then meet on a regular basis to review the Financial Plan to make sure you are on track.
