Investment Planner

What Is an Investment Planner?

Our investment planners specialize in helping you build wealth given your personal financial situation. Any advice we give you will be personally tailored to your circumstances, objectives, and timelines. Our investment planners are also LPL financial advisors who can help you with other aspects of your finances besides wealth management. 

Investment planning includes selecting appropriate investment vehicles, balancing your portfolio, choosing the appropriate stocks, bonds, and mutual funds to invest in, and analyzing and seeing to provide you with competitive returns. To help you build wealth, our financial professionals first get to know you, your family, your financial situation, your goals, and your risk tolerance.

How a Financial Advisor Can Help You Build Wealth

Our LPL financial advisors take a comprehensive approach to your finances. While we can help you build wealth through investment management, we also take great pride in considering other factors that stop you from building generational wealth. Most people don’t think about anything beyond saving for retirement, which can be a costly mistake.

For example, our LPL financial advisors create a tax planning strategy to minimize your tax burden. We consider your insurance needs to ensure your assets are protected. Finally, we can help you create a strategy that allows you to address different financial goals. The most difficult part about building wealth is to get started, especially if you’re trying to prepare for retirement, pay off debt, and save for college at the same time.

The Importance of Wealth Management

Having a specialist  to help you with your investment decisions is one benefit of wealth management. Many people settle for suboptimal returns on their investments because they don’t know how to analyze the performance of their assets or what it means to diversify properly. Some people also make the mistake of selling the stocks as they decline in value, too impatient to wait out the market.

Our LPL  financial advisors have the knowledge and experience to guide your investment decisions. We will explain why we’re investing in certain stocks or bonds, and which investment vehicle could potentially provide competitive returns for your situation. We also consider your risk tolerance to help preserve your wealth.

FAQs about Investment Planners

What Is the Difference between an Investment Advisor Representative and a Financial Advisor?
An investment advisor representative specializes in creating a plan to build wealth given your financial situation. They can buy and sell assets on your behalf, manage and balance your portfolio, and make recommendations based on your objectives, timelines, and risk tolerance. A financial advisor can offer the same services, but they also consider the big picture of your finances. They may help reduce your tax burden, prepare for retirement, and tackle other financial goals.

How Do I Find A Suitable Investment Planner?
Finding a suitable investment planner takes some research. You want to work with someone who has industry experience and works with a reputable financial firm. Most investment planners are happy to schedule a free consultation with you. This gives you a chance to get to know them. The appropriate investment planner should take the time to learn more about you and your financial situation before recommending any investment or financial products.

What Is a Wealth Management Example?
Wealth management is a process that involves multiple ongoing steps. The first step is always to assess the current situation and set financial goals. Another part is to perform a thorough portfolio review and make recommendations. Your investment planner may suggest diversifying your portfolio to reduce risk or shift the emphasis to different investments to better align with your risk tolerance level.

Do I Need a Financial Advisor or Investment Advisor Representative?
If you want to build wealth, you probably need to work with a financial advisor to create an investment plan. Many  people simply don’t have the knowledge or resources to make appropriate decisions about their assets. Working with a specialist can help you pursue your goals and work towards prosperous financial future for yourself and your family.
