Planningyour journeyThere are many ways to approach the management of your financial life. Ideally, you’retaking advantage of all the tools at your disposal to get to where you want to go. Ourworld has changed – it’s more globally connected, which, in many ways, complicatesfinancial decisions. No longer can we just decide on a strategic direction withoutanticipating alterations. Actively managing new and even not-so-new risks are essentialto our well being.Many, if not most, people have an accountant who files their taxes, an insuranceagent, and either a stockbroker or a self-directed discount brokerage account. Whileeach of these professionals focuses on a narrow aspect of your financial situation, as arule, only the financial planner takes on the responsibility of looking at the big pictureover time. By doing so, he or she can ensure your overall plan (1) is appropriate for risktolerance and growth objectives; (2) is efficient for diversification, insurance coverageand tax purposes; and (3) helps minimize gaps that could leave your family or businessunder-prepared or under-protected.Wisdom Financial Management
