Financial planning is all about taking a comprehensive approach to your money. Instead of focusing on one aspect of your finances, such as saving for retirement, our holistic financial planning includes creating a tax strategy, protecting your family and your assets with insurance, and preserving and growing your investments with wealth management.
We’re firm believers in end-to-end financial planning, where we leave nothing out. We can help you with your estate plan, long-term care needs, and any other aspect of your financial finances. By working together with your tax accountants and attorneys, we can create a comprehensive financial plan that considers every aspect of your financial life.
The biggest advantage of engaging in financial planning is that you can feel confident with a plan in place. We help you create a strategy that will put you in a competitive position to pursue financial success. Building wealth or saving for retirement can only happen if you take the first step by working with a financial planner.
Financial planning allows you to get a better idea of what your finances look like, too. For example, our team can help you figure out how much money you need to retire, how much you need to contribute to your investment accounts to reach your goals, and how long it will take until you can enjoy a prosperous retirement lifestyle.
Financial planning includes many services, because the goal is to provide a holistic approach to managing your wealth. Here are some examples of financial planning services:

Why Do I Need a Financial Plan?The main reason for having a financial plan is the ability to know exactly what your finances are doing, how and when you’re meeting your goals, and what you can do to improve your situation. Our financial plan considers every aspect of your finances, preserving your wealth, reducing your tax burden, and helping you work toward a prosperous future.
Do I Need a Financial Planner?When you work with our LPL Financial Planners, you benefit from having a qualified professional at your side. Finances are complex and difficult to understand, especially once you add taxes and insurance into the mix. Having a financial planner provides you with holistic, comprehensive financial planning services, which include every facet of your finances.
Is My Will Part of My Financial Plan?Financial planning can and should include an estate plan. Your estate plan might include a will or a trust. Either way, you want a written directive that spells out what happens to your assets. Lots of people make the mistake of waiting to draw up a will because they don’t enjoy thinking about their death. It’s much harder on your family if you die without a will, which is why we recommend adding one to your financial plan.
Is It Too Late for Me to Have a Financial Plan?It’s not too late to make a financial plan, but it’s definitely time if you don’t have one. Our LPL Financial Planners can help you create a plan that works for you and includes everything you need to make sure your assets are protected and your family is provided for. If your plan is outdated, we also recommend talking to our professionals to update it.
