Financial planners listen to their clients and help the customer to assess their needs. They help the customer develop a realistic framework for their financial investment goals and then suggest implementation strategies. To give customers the best information possible, a planner must continually educate themselves on the newest developments in the investment field, including potential and risks. A planner must also be able to map out a coherent investment framework for his customers and provide them with choices based on risk and return on investment.
Financial planners typically work during regular business hours in an office setting. However, because of the numerous investment services available and because new products are introduced constantly, a financial planner usually works longer hours conducting analysis, research, and continuing education.
Financial planners typically need a bachelor's degree in business or a related field. Some companies require post-graduate education as well. Planners normally undergo a training program with the hiring financial institution, depending on the new employee’s prior experience. In many situations, prior experience as an associate or assistant financial planner is required. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
