Don’t “Do-It-Yourself” for Your Financial Strategy

We live in a do-it-yourself culture. From home remodeling to teaching yourself how to play an instrument, the internet gives us the resources to learn and do just about anything on our own.

That includes creating a financial strategy. The vast array of resources available out there make putting together a financial strategy sound simple. But the benefits of working with a financial advisor to create a cohesive, personalized strategy can outweigh the pros of going it on your own. Here are just a few reasons you should work with a financial advisor to put together your strategy:

  1. Time. You may have the ability to put together your own strategy, but do you have the time? Putting together a financial strategy can take lots of time — time spent pulling current statements, researching options and making changes. A financial advisor can save you time by presenting options to you and handling the legwork to establish new strategies. He or she also can monitor and update your strategy as needed.
  2. Knowledge. A financial advisor understands the options available and how they work in tandem with the other items in your strategy. A financial advisor also understands the latest features of the available investment and insurance products.
  3. Accountability. A financial advisor will not only help you create a financial strategy, but he or she will keep you accountable to it. He or she can help you keep the bigger picture in mind and help you understand the progress you’re making toward your financial goals.
