With the financial media bombarding us with investment ideas, we are flooded with tips on how to accumulate wealth. However, you should first decide what your money means to you. Do you know why you are investing, or are you using a haphazard strategy to try to achieve an unclear set of goals?
We have found there are five financial goals common to most people:
- To retire comfortably
- To assist children financially
- To help pay for the educations of children and grandchildren
- To have the resources to care for aging parents
- To make a charitable donation to a school, church, or other charity
We stress the importance of financial checkups to monitor your performance in working toward your goals. Let’s ensure your investments will help you achieve your goals. If you believe your investments need to be redirected to new or different goals, contact us so we can help you get or stay on course.
