Stop worrying about your financial life! Engage with a financial professional to receive unbiased advice through a comprehensive financial plan.  This holistic plan covers all elements of your financial life through a simple 4-step process.

The first step in the planning process is developing your ‘Why’ factor. This will serve as the motivation for every aspect of your plan. You will complete two exercises (Financial Perspectives & Goal Development surveys) followed by an hour-long meeting to discuss your results and begin working your goals into your plan.

The second step is gathering your current financial data.  A Document Checklist will be provided to help gather all pertinent information.  Right Capital (financial planning software) will be used to securely link accounts or upload documents for evaluation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I consider a Comprehensive Financial Plan?

In its Value of Financial Planning* study, the Financial Planning Standards Council found those who had engaged in comprehensive financial planning reported “significantly higher levels of financial and emotional well-being than those who do no planning or limited planning.” They felt the most comfortable about their finances and were confident in achieving their life goals. *

How long does it take to complete a Comprehensive Financial Plan?

It depends! The timeline for completion is typically 1-3 months depending on the timely completion of tasks, organization of information, and meeting availability.

Is the fee due all at once?

Half of the fee is due upon starting the engagement with the other half due upon completion of the plan.

What if I would like to make changes to my plan?

This is your plan so it should refelct what you want. If additional adjustments are needed after Step 4, Rooted Interest will update the plan, modify recommendations, and present an updated plan in a brief meeting. Rooted Interest will help with implementation tasks (where possible) for up to one month after plan delivery. Otherwise, updates to your plan can be made with an Hourly Financial Planning engagement.
