Comprehensive financial planning attempts to consider all aspects of your financial position, which includes your goals and objectives. Often several integrated and coordinated planning strategies are used to fulfill those goals and objectives. The two key characteristics of comprehensive financial planning are:
1. It encompasses all personal and financial situations to the extent that these can be uncovered, clarified, and addressed through information gathering, analysis and counseling.
2. It integrates into its methodology all the techniques and expertise utilized in more narrowly focused approaches to solving your financial problems.
