Seeking professional help is always good thing. Whether it is seeing a doctor for an annual check-up or a dreaded visit to the dentist, we entrust professionals to monitor and manage various aspects of our lives for our own benefit.
Working with a financial planner is no different. Although it does not rank as important as having access to a doctor, a financial planner can offer individuals various benefits in terms of money management through various periods of one’s life.
One of myths that some individuals have about working with financial planner is that you have to be wealthy. Not true. Deciding to work a planner is a process in which individuals should sit down and consider it if they experience the following seven signs.
1 – Having long term goals for your money
Whether it be having a house when you are 55 years old or being well off before you retire, long term financial goals are attainable especially with the assistance of a planner. With a clear idea of what you can do in terms of saving and investing money, a financial planner can provide you with right approach and tools to enable to reach your goals.
2 – Steady flow of incoming cash
If you are fortunately to be working full-time and relatively debt-free, you probably want to make your incoming cash work for you. If that is the case, you may want to see what a financial planner can do for you. Knowing that you have a steady amount of money to invest on a monthly basis, a planner can recommend the appropriate strategy to help your money grow.
3 – Extra cash in accounts
Have you opened many savings and chequing accounts over years and want to do something with the cash? Why not consolidate the money and put it in the hands of a financial planner. The planner will not only make the extra month grow but you have the peace of mind that the money is in one place.
4 – Not happy with your returns on savings account
Although there is nothing wrong with trying to managing your savings on your own, you may have a limited amount of knowledge and time to make your money thrive. See small returns at the end of the month should prompt you to start looking for professional help. By either placing your savings in a high interest account or tax free savings account, the planner is in the best position to invest the money based on your needs and how comfortable you are with risk in terms of investing for the years to come.
5 – Planning for retirement
Want to retire comfortably without being concerned about paying for monthly expenses? You may want to work with a financial planner to establish a retirement plan. Taking into account that both government pension plans may not be sustainable going into the future, having access to a planner may allow you to have registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) and or a tax free savings plan (TFSA) that are carefully built might be the best alternative for you.
6 – Understanding personal financial tools
