A Financial Planner offers professional advice to clients on how they might reach their financial goals. You might make recommendations based on your clients’ particular situation and you could come up with strategies to help them reach their objectives. A Financial Planner, or a Financial Planning Assistant, might specialise in a particular area such as investment strategies, superannuation development, tax minimisation or retirement planning.
Financial Planners should have good personal skills and be able to deal with a range of clients from individual customers to large or small businesses. It’s important that you are organised and can manage your time well. You’ll need a good understanding of financial systems and products and you should be able to communicate well with clients and understand their individual needs.
