Who is a Financial Planner?

A Financial planner is an individual who helps you to deal with financial issues via proper planning. Just like we have doctors for medical problems, we have financial planners for financial problems.

Certified Financial Planners (CFP) are professional authorized to do financial planning. If you are planning to take help from financial planner you must opt for CFP (Certified Financial Planner).

Who is not a Financial Planner?

Today we find a lot of people advertise themselves as a financial planner. By education either they are CA, MBA (finance), ICWA or CS. Although they have knowledge in finance domain that does not mean that they can act as a financial planner.

In the same way Insurance agent, Mutual Fund agent, Wealth Manager or Relationship manager is not a financial planner. These people can definitely help for the selection of right investment product, but that does not mean that they are financial planners.

Financial planning is a personalized service. A financial planner makes a financial plan. This financial plan contains detailed information about the future financial goal, tax planning, insurance planning, investment advice, cash flow management, and lot more.
