What is Financial Planning?

Because our field is essential to improve people's lives, ethics plays a large part in our work. You’re partly responsible for someone’s financial health, which can help them achieve their life goals. As a financial planner, you develop relationships with clients to provide advice and education in:

  • Financial Psychology.
  • Retirement savings and income planning.
  • Tax and estate planning.
  • Household risk management and insurance planning.
  • College Planning
  • Establishing and wisely using credit.
  • Cash and Credit Management.
  • Investment planning.
