Financial Management

Financial Management is the analysis of your current and expected future budgets.  It will provide insights into your propensity to spend, save and assume debt obligations.  Lifestyle expenses which cause a cash flow deficit present risk to the client in the sustainability of maintaining that lifestyle.  Cash flow surpluses present opportunities to allocate extra funds to strategies meant to either speed up the attainment of a goal or increase the overall size of that goal, like an inheritance or charitable donation.  Tax Planning along with Financial Management can increase a household's disposable income allowing for greater savings each year, increased funds available for investment deposits and the compounding affect of having greater capital invested over the lifetime of the Plan.
