Financial planning is the process of establishing financial goals and creating ways to reach them. Certified financial planners examine the assets of their clients and suggest what steps they need to take in the future to meet their goals. They take a broad approach to financial advice, which distinguishes them from other professional advisers, such as insurance agents, stockbrokers, accountants, attorneys, and real estate agents, each of whom typically focuses on only one aspect of a person's finances. Approximately 183,420 personal financial advisers are employed in the United States.
