The Importance of Planning

The Importance of Planning

It has been said that "failing to plan is planning to fail," and this saying certainly holds true when it comes to your wealth. Years of research show that investors who follow a carefully planned set of guidelines have a higher success rate than those who act on their emotions or make frequent changes.

In order to build and preserve your wealth over time, you must remain consistently disciplined by following your plan and not allowing temporary activity in the markets to interfere with your decision-making process. While this is a simple concept, it is not easy in practice. Normal human emotions make it very difficult for people to act prudently when confronted with challenging market and economic circumstances.

A key aspect of our role as your advisor is to reinforce the "big picture" perspective. We help you create a plan that allows you to capitalize over the long term. By balancing shorter-term concerns with longer-term needs and objectives, you can remain confidently committed to your plan.


The Evolution of Your Plan

While your plan should never adapt based on impulsive decisions, it will require adjustments over time to reflect financial planning innovations, tax law modifications or your constantly evolving values, goals, and finances. A plan that was an accurate reflection ten years ago may be obsolete today. Ongoing reviews assure that the plan stays up to date.
