Financial Planning Week … Quality advice for free!!!

The annual Financial Planning Week kicks off on the 7th September. It aims to raise awareness of the importance of financial planning and how relevant it is to all South Africans. It's an initiative from the Financial Planning Institute which has become a successful annual event over the years.

Financial planning differs from financial advice in that it follows a deliberate process to arrive at an appropriate solution as apposed to a sales approach which is purely product focussed. The week devotes itself to educating the public about financial planning by arranging workshops and exhibitions throughout the country at various venues as well as offering free financial planning to the public from CFP professionals.

There are well over 100 000 advisors in South Africa and only 2 000 practicing CFP professionals. This a rare chance to engage with a qualified financial planner ‘pro bono” … gratis… free.

All you need do is go to www.financialplanningweek.co.za for details on what is happening in your area and where to find a Certified Financial Planner who will offer you a free consultation. There is also a very useful course you can register for called My Money 123 which helps you to get a better understanding things financial.
