Financial Planning Project Instructions:

You will serve as a financial advisor for your client to develop a financial plan. You can compile all the worksheets introduced in each chapter and use your real data as inputs to come up with a solid financial plan and recommendation for your client.

If you don't have any income source, you can find someone else, e.g. your friends or relatives, to have real data inputs. 

In your report, you will include:

(i) Background information description of your client(s).

(ii) Financial goals that you and your clients have discussed: short-term, intermediate, and long-term goals. If your client has set up buying a house or a car as his/her financial goal, you can provide suggestions on whether he/she will be better off by buying or renting.  

(iii) Cash budgeting, insurance planning, retirement planning and investment planning.

(iv) For each type of specific planning, you can use the worksheets we practice as references.
