Financial planning goes hand-in-hand with financial preparedness and confidence about the future. At Richard Brothers Financial Advisors, we spend the time to get to know you, and then develop a plan uniquely suited to your goals.
According to research by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards and the Consumer Federation of America, families that are considered “comprehensive planners” are more successful at meeting financial goals, following a plan for savings and investment and maintaining adequate insurance coverage. They’re also far more confident in their ability to manage their finances.
Most of these comprehensive planners work with a financial professional with a fiduciary responsibility, according to the study. They also plan for specific savings goals: 88 percent have a specific plan for retirement and 80 percent have a plan for emergency savings. More than half report an annual household income of $100,000 or more.
Yet only 19 percent of American households have achieved this level of financial preparedness and peace of mind. Shouldn’t yours be one of them?

In today’s dollars, college costs an average of $43,700 per year, according to the latest data from The College Board. Assuming a five percent annual increase, in 18 years, a four-year private college education is likely to cost over $450,000. Fortunately, there are many options for defraying those expenses. Learn how Richard Brothers can provide college financial planning services to reach your family's education planning goals.
