The Benefits of Working with a Financial Advisor

It’s important that you have the skills to manage your finances and make important financial decisions for your future. However, even the most financially savvy individual can benefit from working with a professional financial advisor. Doing so can offer you many benefits and more confidence in your finances, both now and in the future. Here are just a few of the benefits of working with us.

Prepare for Unexpected Changes

Many DIY retirement plans are focused on a specific number—a savings goal that must be reached before retirement. However, retirement planning involves much more than reaching a savings goal. You must be able to plan for unexpected risks and changes in your future, including:

  • Living longer than expected
  • Requiring long-term care at home or in a care facility
  • Higher-than-average inflation rates
  • Higher medical bills
  • Market declines that impact your investments
  • And more

Our financial advisors can help you navigate and plan for these risks, so that you can feel confident in your retirement years, no matter how things might change down the road.

Plan for Income Distribution

In addition to planning to save more effectively, a financial planner can also help you plan for how that income will be distributed. Shifting from a lifetime of earning and saving to living off of those savings can be difficult for many new retirees. A financial advisor helps you to determine the best, most tax-efficient way to manage your retirement income, so you can ensure you have consistent income every month and that your expenses will be covered.

Customize Your Financial Strategy

Many people who try to handle their own financial planning rely on cookie-cutter advice and financial planning templates that they find from other sources. While these can be a decent building block with which to start, they should not form the heart of your retirement plan. Your needs are unique, and they will change over time. Having a financial advisor gives you access to a professional who can help your adapt, customize, and pivot your financial plan as needed year after year, so you always stay on track to your goals.
