Comprehensive Financial Planning

There’s more to financial planning than just investing. To have strong financial footing, and to work toward your goals as effectively as possible, your planning must be holistic.

At Wahlberg Financial Services, we will create a Comprehensive Financial Plan that will address all aspects of your financial picture, including :

Personal Financial Planning Takes Into Account All Areas of Your Financial Life

  • Cash flow review and analysis
  • Net worth review and analysis
  • Insurance review and employee benefits selection
  • Wealth accumulation toward large expenses or purchases
  • Planning for retirement or managing a current retirement
  • Tax planning*
  • Estate planning

We can also help with specific situations:

  • Retiring and the decisions associated with that process
  • Job change
  • Starting your own business
  • Saving for college
  • Buying a home
  • Marriage
  • Arrival of a child
  • Inheritance/Unexpected income

Our Financial Planning Process

We follow the same financial planning process advocated by the CFP(r) Board of Standards.

  • Wahlberg Financial Services offers a free initial consultation designed for you and your advisor to get to know one another. During this meeting, Katherine Rubin, CFP, will explain the services offered by WFS and describe the planning process we use. She will also ask a number of questions about your financial position and the type of assistance you are looking for to determine if we can help you. You will leave the meeting with an understanding of the assistance WFS will be able to give you and how much it will cost.

  • Next Katherine will guide you through the process of gathering your financial data and developing your financial goals. You will receive a list of the documents we will need to review and a cash flow template to help you flesh out your expenses. Katherine will also ask you a number of additional questions that will help her evaluate your financial position and create an appropriate financial plan.

  • Upon receiving the needed information, we will analyze it from two perspectives:
    • How sound is your current position?
    • How effectively are you working towards your goals?

  • Once our analysis is complete, we’ll provide you in writing with our findings and recommendations on how you can improve your current financial situations and better work towards your goals. Each year you choose to work with Wahlberg Financial Services, you will receive a new written analysis gauging your progress and addressing any changes to your financial position and goals.

  • The next step is to implement your plan. We will work with you to make the process as efficient as possible.

  • Wahlberg Financial Services will help you to monitor your progress and will address any situations that arise.
