Benefits of Financial PlanningBy Randell Tiongson on March 25th, 2010
Q. How will you benefit from Financial Planning
A. Financial planning will give you a clear picture, perhaps for the first time, of where you stand financially. Many families have no idea of the value of their estate, how they spend their money, or what their money can do for them.
Financial planning will provide direction and discipline. Without this direction and discipline it is very probable you will make impulsive, random decisions; you might buy this insurance, invest in that hot investment, adopt the latest tax strategy. The pieces not only don’t fit together, they may actually conflict with each other and compound the problem. Financial planning integrates your assets with your goals and objectives.
Financial planning can give you peace of mind. Uncertainty about finances creates anxiety. Money is the most common cause of marital stress and divorce. If you know where you stand financially, where you are going, and how you’re going to get there, you’ll feel more confident about your financial situation, about yourself and about your relationships.
