Comprehensive Financial Planning

A plan that reviews all areas of your financial life.

For most people, it’s much more valuable to look at their entire financial picture, instead of just focusing on one or two areas. What does your financial situation look like now? What do you want to achieve in the future?

This Package Includes:

Our Comprehensive Financial Plan covers the entire spectrum of your financial planning needs. This includes:

  • Investment advice – Review and analysis of your current investment accounts and portfolio, review of employer investments, etc.
  • Retirement planning – Making sure you are on track for retirement, including multiple scenarios if applicable (full or part-time retirement, downsizing in retirement, etc.)
  • Education plan – Review and recommendations for your college goals, public vs. private school, options for education vehicles, etc.
  • Insurance recommendations – Review and recommendations of your entire insurance situation (life, disability, home/rental, auto, property, medical, long-term care, etc.)
  • Estate planning review – Determining your estate planning needs (trust, will, powers of attorney for healthcare, financial and living directive, etc.)
  • Prioritized recommendations– Your financial planning “to-do” items, summarized and prioritized on one, easy-to-understand page
