For your firm’s advisors to be effective at financial planning, they need to transport themselves and their clients into the past, present and future simultaneously. By using research-driven insights from the Psychology of Financial Planning, advisors can apply this paradigm to understand their clients better and help them make the best decisions to reach their financial goals.
