Susan O'Mara, Financial Advisor at Milestone Advisory writes, while the role of the financial adviser is to focus on the money, sometimes the planning phase can raise other issues a client has not previously considered.

In the pre-retirement financial planning phase, it is beneficial to take a holistic approach, so that along with diligently saving money, you also make time to consider what that money is for. As I’ve written previously, this can have a beneficial impact on your savings habits. It might also make you think about a phase in life that you haven’t previously considered. Consider that the financial plan is only the tip of the iceberg!
