(NewsUSA) - In the wake of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, many people are looking to cut costs and better manage expenses. Some may view financial planners as an unnecessary expense, but in reality, a smart relationship with an experienced financial planner will save you money in the short- and long-term, and will help you weather the challenges of a changing economy.
CFP Board, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting professional standards in personal financial planning, emphasizes how the guidance a financial planner can provide goes beyond the surface of stocks and investment advice. Instead it emphasizes the benefits of a long-term plan to help people meet their financial goals. Only individuals who have fulfilled CFP Board's rigorous requirements can call themselves a CFP® certificant, so be sure your planner is a certified CFP® professional.
