What Is Holistic Financial Planning?

With holistic financial planning, we create a financial plan for your unique situation. A holistic financial plan considers your current circumstances, such as your assets, debts, and income, to create a realistic financial plan to help you pursue your goals. Holistic financial plans can help you work towards multiple financial goals, such as retirement and saving for college, without overextending yourself. 

An important part of holistic financial planning is the ability to accommodate life events. Marriage, children, death, job loss, divorce, and retirement can affect your financial situation. It’s important to adjust for life’s circumstances and tweak your financial plan instead of just giving up on your goals. Our holistic financial planners can also keep you accountable for your financial goals to increase your chance of success.

FAQs about Holistic Financial Planning

Do All Financial Advisors Use Holistic Financial Planning?

No. Many financial advisors focus on some important aspects of financial planning, mainly retirement planning. But they don’t always look at the big picture of your finances and consider your unique situation. A holistic financial planner will examine every piece of your financial life to make sure your financial plan works for you. 

How Is Holistic Financial Planning Different from Traditional Financial Planning?

Holistic financial planners take a more comprehensive approach to financial planning. Instead of only focusing on long-term financial goals, a holistic planner will help you create a specific investment or savings plan that takes your situation into account. They may even help you create a budget and get out of debt before they set up your retirement account. 

How Do I Create a Holistic Financial Plan?

To create a comprehensive, holistic financial plan, your first step is to create a detailed overview of your current assets, debts, and income. Your financial planner must understand your current financial situation before they can make recommendations for your future. Next, you want to get crystal clear about your financial goals. Write them all down, then bring the information with you to our first meeting.
