Financial planning 101: The importance of a financial plan

It’s about more than simply investing and maximizing your returns.
You may be focused on your annualized return on investments, but do you know how this translates to achieving your goals and living the lifestyle you want? Do you know if your returns are generating enough cash flow to last throughout your retirement?
A financial plan will look at where you are now and determine what the gaps are for you to reach your financial goals, giving you actionable steps to get there. Having a plan in place will make sure you are financially prepared for retirement and your future, so you can live the lifestyle you have always wanted.
