The Financial Planning Engagement

You may have your advisor, insurance agent, investment professional, legal professional, CA and many more who may be advising you on various matters related to your needs. But it’s difficult to coordinate between these professionals and collate information yourself. The other drawback is that you do not find enough professionals with expertise of understanding about your child various life stages. They are not well aware of the means to be used to sail through your unique financial situation. This creates a huge gap in your financial planning and the majority of the issues remains unaddressed. In most traditional planning you have an overflow of information from various sources which you have to coordinate them to bring a successful output. It puts you in humongous task making you less effective.
