The Evidence is Compelling that Financial Planning Can Have a Dramatic Influence on Your Financial Future
A 2013 study by Morningstar found that individuals who worked with a financial planner generated 1.82% higher annual investment returns and had 29% higher retirement income than those who did not.
A 2011 study by HSBC found that individuals who used a financial planner accumulated nearly 250% more in retirement assets than individuals who did not use a financial planner.
A 2013 study by the Society of Actuaries found that most individuals consider financial planning on a short-term horizon (such as cash flow management), yet more than 40% of retirees experience negative cash flow - a situation they may have avoided by engaging in long term financial planning.
Financial Planning Can Give You Peace of Mind
In a 2014 IRI Survey of Baby Boomers, individuals who were working with a financial planner were more than twice as likely to express confidence in their retirement plan as compared to individuals not working with a planner.
