How a Local Financial Planner Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

As you grow your savings and start to think about retirement planning and personal financial goals, you might wonder whether a local financial planner can help.

In many cases, financial planning includes components beyond investment management—such as tax and estate planning, which can be complex and time-consuming to manage on your own. Working with a local financial planner may provide you with the resources and one-on-one guidance you need to manage your finances in a way that helps you achieve your long-term goals.

Benefits of Working with a Local Financial Planner

While some personal investors feel they can make do with online resources, robo-advisors, or large national financial advisory firms, working with one of our advisors at Financial Dynamics & Associates can make a difference in terms of the level of personalized advice you receive.

The advisors at our Richmond-based firm have a better understanding of local and state taxes. When building your personalized financial plan, our advisors account for taxes in various areas ranging from retirement planning to selling investments in an after-tax brokerage account.

In addition to potentially having a better understanding of your taxes, a local financial planner could be useful in terms of understanding the community you live in. Economic conditions can vary from city to city and state to state. Business owners in Richmond, for example, would benefit from a local financial planner who has a deeper understanding of the risks that they face, their income needs, and how to value their business. Similarly, they will have a better understanding of local retirement planning needs.

If you want to retire in Virginia, our financial advisors know the area well and can help you build a personalized financial plan to achieve that goal based on the amount you need to save to afford a comfortable lifestyle in your area.

If you are considering retiring elsewhere, our advisors have insights into the paths that other individuals and families in our community have taken so you can get a better sense of your options.

We also have a strong network of professionals in areas such as insurance and estate planning that we can recommend to you if you need specialized assistance.
