Family Financial Planning

Early Career and Raising a Family

Many of the most important financial decisions you will make occur in your 20s, 30s, and 40s. For many, this is the “family financial planning” stage of life.

Unfortunately, most financial advisers turn their back on individuals in your situation but are happy to welcome you back if you manage to figure things out and bring a big pile of money with you.

We believe it is imperative to have an adviser with you at this critical time in your life. We give clarity to your strengths and weaknesses and help you budget and direct your cash flows to accomplish your objectives today while positioning yourself for your future.

There are a laundry list of concerns and events that make a huge impact on our lives and it’s very easy to make a miss-step without having a complete understanding of what you’re getting yourself into.

1. Debt Management (Student Loans, Mortgages, Credit Cards)

Creating a pay-off plan and prioritizing one loan over another can save you a tremendous amount of money in interest which can be used to fund the things you really want to do.

2. Creating a Budget

Understanding your income/expenses and optimizing your cash flow is the first step towards building wealth and accomplishing your financial goals.

3. Investing in Your 401(k) and Saving for Retirement

Utilizing the right mutual funds in your 401(k) and knowing what to do with that money when you change employment, as well as getting an idea how much you should be saving each paycheck, can have dramatic effects for your financial well-being later in life.

4. Buying a House

Navigating the additional expenses that come with a mortgage along with all of the other costs that go into buying and owning property is important to solid financial health.

The simple desire to stop “throwing money away on rent” often overlooks the impact and consequences of one of the most important financial decisions you will make in your life.

5. Starting a Family

Incorporating the costs of a family addition into your overall goals presents new challenges that affect every aspect of your financial life.

6. Saving for Your Children’s Education

Ensuring your children are given every chance possible to succeed is at the top of the list for most parents. Discovering how and where to save for your child’s future is key towards making this a reality.
