When it comes to life changes like saving for college or preparing for retirement, consulting a financial planner can help you better understand some of the many aspects you’ll need to consider. At Prosper Financial, we offer a variety of services for individuals looking to develop strategies that are geared toward pursuing their financial goals. Our Munster financial planners will work with you to develop a plan that’s appropriate for your unique situation.
A financial planner is a professional who can advise you on ways to work towards both short and long term financial goals. A Certified Financial Planner, in particular, has special licensure that requires them to gain experience in the field, take an exam, and adhere to certain ethical standards.
If this is your first time working with a financial planner, there are a handful of things you may wish to keep in mind going into your appointment: What does your financial situation look like now, and how would you like to see it change? How do those changes work in the full picture of your finances?
If you are uncertain whether seeing a financial planner is right for you, you may wish to consider your financial goals and the complexities of your situation. If you have been through recent changes, such as marriage or divorce, or if you are struggling to imagine a path toward your goals, then you may find it beneficial to speak to an advisor. Our team at Prosper Financial is happy to work with you to better understand your situation and any challenges ahead.
Anyone can start planning for retirement, no matter what age you are. However, it can be difficult to know what methods are best for you, and you may have questions. A financial planner can discuss the risks and benefits of various retirement plans with you. Many people find saving the amount of money that they will need in retirement to be a daunting task; it’s often recommended that you replace 70 to 90 percent of your income between Social Security and personal savings.
Prosper Financial’s process starts with a consultation where we’ll try to learn more about your current goals, giving us a better picture of your financial circumstances today and where you’d like them to be tomorrow. We’ll then strategize a specialized plan that aims at strengthening your financial portfolio and making steps toward accomplishing those objectives. After we review the proposed plan with you and make sure that you are comfortable, we’ll implement and monitor the plan for as long as you choose to continue with our services.
Whether you’re looking to refine an existing financial plan or get help saving for retirement for the first time, Prosper Financial’s Munster Financial Planners can work with you to develop a plan that’s appropriate for your individual needs.
