Financial Planning Process

The CFP Board defines financial planning as “the process of determining whether and how an individual can meet life goals through the proper management of financial resources. Financial planning integrates the financial planning process with the financial planning subject areas.”

Goood financial planning should always incorporate these six steps in the financial planning process:

  • Establishing and defining the client-planner relationship
  • Gathering client data including values and goals
  • Analyzing and evaluating the client’s financial health status
  • Developing and presenting recommendations and/or alternatives
  • Implementing the recommendations
  • Reviewing, monitoring and adjusting the plan where applicable
