Financial Planning Services – Evergreen Park, IL

The most popular misconception regarding financial planning is that it is all about investing. Needless to say investing is a part of financial planning as one should make intelligent investment decisions, but there is much more to it. Financial Planning is the process of developing strategies to help you control your financial affairs effectively and meet financial targets. It is a holistic method that can help you make smarter decisions by turning vague goals into concrete strategies, offering a guide for action. Having a financial plan - and sticking to it - will give you a true advantage when it comes to planning your retirement along with other long-term financial and life goals.

Saving For Retirement and Your Child's Education - Evergreen Park, IL

Often individuals say that they're saving for retirement or saving for their children's education. They seem like distinct goals, however they are really quite vague. Financial planning can find the important numbers - How much should you save and by when? If you aren't sure whether or not you'll have enough to live on post-retirement, it can create anxiety. But when you know what you should do and that you are following the financial plan, it offers peace of mind and assurance. When your situation changes from single to married, from renting to buying a home, having kids or caring for aging mothers and fathers, financial planning will help you make better-informed decisions.

Certified Financial Planner - Evergreen Park, IL

The majority of people do not have limitless resources. In such a scenario, Financial Planning through a Certified Financial Planner can offer advice on how best to make informed choices and prudently use the limited resources for reaching financial freedom. Say, if you have identified retirement and funding your child's education as your financial targets, but you only have Rs. 1,000 extra each and every year to achieve these goals, a Certified Financial Planner will help you choose among your priorities. Whatever you decide, you'll have the reassurance of knowing that a specialist has reviewed your circumstances and that you are doing something positive for your financial predicament. Financial planning supplies a road map with an action plan that - if followed diligently - will take you where you want to go fiscally.

Missing the big picture is an issue seen too frequently with clients. If you're centered on the near-term rather than on much wider long-term implications, then you could wind up impairing the build up of wealth. For example, depending on pre-tax returns for financial decision-making as opposed to understanding that different types of investments are subject to differing tax rates could be harmful for your financial health. A Certified Financial Planner can make you understand that the kind of investment you choose affects the after-tax return. Bear in mind, it's not about the returns an investment creates; it comes down to the net income that comes in your hand. Many of you fail to realize the delayed tax implications on the potential nest eggs. It's pre-tax returns you are concerned with and you fail to realize that there will be a drag on the ultimate amount of money you'll have because of the tax liability which is waiting for you.
