2021 Financial Checklist
Create a Budget
Creating a budget and keeping track of spending allows you have more control of your finances. Sticking to your budget can help you increase net worth over time and help you feel more prepared. If you need ideas on good, easy to use, budgeting tools, contact one of our experienced advisors!
Build an Emergency Fund
An emergency fund helps you prepare for the unexpected. And let’s be honest, there’s been a lot of that lately. Set aside 3-6 months of essential living expenses to avoid going into further debt. Make sure your emergency fund is working for you too! Check bankrate.com for top savings account rates.
Review Insurance Coverage
Reviewing your insurance coverages annually gives you the chance to make sure your coverage still fits your needs. Are you overpaying for insurance? Did you move and need to update your home insurance? Do you have a life insurance policy?
Optimize your Portfolio
Maximize your returns and minimize financial risk by staying on top of your investment portfolio. Create a strategy and adjust as needed. Do you have more risk exposure than necessary? Don’t forget to consider your taxes!
Create an Estate Plan
An estate plan isn’t just for the wealthy. Updating or preparing your will or trust, reviewing beneficiaries, and appointing a trusted power of attorney can save time and heartache for your loved ones.
