Financial planning is more than budgeting, saving or having the perfect investment strategy. It’s a process that sets you on a course toward achievement of your personal goals, needs and priorities through the proper management of your financial affairs.
Canadians who engage in comprehensive financial planning report significantly higher levels of financial and emotional well-being than those who don’t. They say they feel more on track with their financial goals and retirement plans, have improved their ability to save, are more confident that they can deal with bumps in life, and feel better able to indulge in things like vacations and splurges.
