At EP Wealth Advisors, we practice holistic financial planning, which takes into account all of the elements of your financial picture rather than just isolated pieces of it. In this way, we can create a financial plan that considers everything that is important to you – your specific goals, ideals, risk tolerance, and lifestyle, both present and future. The goal of this process is to find the best solutions for you, including the most appropriate investment vehicles.
How Does the Concept of Holistic Financial Planning Work?
Holistic financial planning starts with an initial meeting with your financial advisor so that he can gather as much information as possible regarding your future goals and objectives, as well as your current financial situation. Next, all of the data gathered at the preliminary meeting is analyzed for the purpose of formulating a strategy based on your financial needs. It is here that your specific goals and objectives are laid out and considered with regard to wealth creation, management of debt, taxes, risk, and future estate planning needs.
During this second phase of the holistic financial planning process, we determine which investment vehicles will be best for you, and then execute the transactions to implement the plan. The last stage of the holistic financial planning process includes regular monitoring and review of the plan. Since change is a constant in life, your financial goals and needs are likely to change over time and we ensure that your plan is updated accordingly.
Holistic financial planning is not a “once and done” exercise; rather it involves regular portfolio reviews, strategy sessions and tax considerations to ensure that the plan continues to serve your needs.
