As the economy is not what it used to be, people have turned to financial advisors for help in their financial situations. People choose to use an advisor when experiencing financial mistakes or just for managing their money. Many financial advisors choose financial planning as a career to help people out of financial problems and to help people use their money effectively.
As a financial planner is there to help with money situations, they are also there to help with the future. Jane states that many people ask the question of whether they can retire soon, when can they retire, and will they outlive their money. For a financial planner the solution is planning. Jane has worked through these questions by first goal setting, managing cash flow, completing a retirement projection, investment review, reviewing insurance needs, and analyzing the data. When the data has been reviewed, the financial planner then can estimate when the client may retire in the future. All of these steps are to ensuring the client of when they can afford to retire and if they need to reevaluate their financial status.
As financial advisors are there to help people in need, Jane states that although everyone has their own values and beliefs, financial advisors are to take an oath insuring that their values will not interfere with the clients best interests. Not only does a financial advisor put their values second, they also provide a second opinion if needed. As an hourly planner they respond to all of the clients needs and offer comprehensive planning and any other project work as needed. Jane stated that financial planning is based on the client and the client only.
