Investment Planning

While it might seem like a rudimentary part of investment strategy, investment planning just might be the most important facet of your financial future. How do you make good financial decisions? How do you understand the market, and its ability to benefit you? What are the risks involved in investing? These are only a few questions that we all have when considering making our first investment. Investment Advisory Representatives are here to make your life easier. Our primary goal is to help grow your portfolio. Together, we can help develop an investment plan that will aid you in all of your future endeavors.

Firstly, it is important clarify precisely what it is that you want from investing. By prioritizing your wants and needs, your plan can better reflect what financial goals need to be set. Prioritizing also helps to accurately assess your risk tolerance and better represent your investment options. We can help you delve through this mountain of work and lay out a plan. When considering an investment plan, it is imperative that you lay out what your ultimate goal is – are you planning for retirement, purchasing a home, an education for your children? These all involve different types of investments with varying levels of risk.

Understanding your risk tolerance is another important step towards finetuning your investment plan. We can help lay out all of your options and help determine what you will invest in and what you won’t invest in. Do you want to invest more conservatively, or are you considering long-term investments that might have larger returns but carry more risk? In order to determine the amount of risk you want to take with your investments, it is also necessary to have a timetable. Planning for a child’s college education has a much shorter timeline than that of planning for retirement.

We are also here to help you understand different types of investment vehicles: stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and real estate. Each of these involve different levels of risk, has different types of benefits, and is useful for different reasons. It is our goal to help you understand each of them so that when we settle on an investment plan, you are in the know on how your money is being handled. Once a plan has been set in place, we will help you to develop it over time, as factors change.

One of the key points of investment planning is the strategy, which is made with your best interests in mind. While all investments come with some form of risk, it is our job to help you find the types of investments that might help meet your needs, while also preserving your money so that it is there when you need it. We’ll help to diversify your portfolio, keeping an eye on your investments. We’ll monitor the progress of your investments and keep you informed through every step of the process so that you feel comfortable.
