Tell Me More

Financial planners should carefully explore certain things for their clients, including budgeting, investments, college funding, estate taxes, income taxes, and retirement plans, and then help them implement their recommendations. Every issue can really be complicated on its own, not to mention when combined with other aspects of a client’s financial status. However, advanced technology offers financial planners some effective financial software that can create, present, and calculate complex financial plans that cover every area of the client’s finances.

Which is the Best Software?

While there are certain financial programs that usually stand out when it comes to mathematical and financial difficulty and computing ability, this kind of program might not be suitable for some types of clients. There are some factors that advisors should consider so they can use a financial software like a pro, including:

  • Computing ability – the power to make complex mathematical computations for tax, estate planning, and investments
  • Presentation – graphics like colour coding, line and bar charts, and other visual aids.
  • Scope – modules for all areas of personal finance against one or two
  • Investment scenarios – find out whether the software use hypothetical returns or actual historical data, individual security analysis, etc.

Client

One of the deciding factors when choosing a software program is the type of client the financial advisor work with; an advisor working with a corporate executive or other high net-worth clients need a software that can perform complicated calculations; and if they work with blue collar employees, military personnel, or senior citizens, they must use a financial software with simplified calculations and easy-to-understand visual aids.
