  2. Hey there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about financial planning in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about financial planning. Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
    The Financial Planning activity involves assessing the business environment.
    Don’t avoid hiring a financial advisor because you think it will be expensive or difficult. We help you to move your accounts and combine any like-kind accounts. This way you have a better handle on what you have, and can more easily track your progress toward your financial goals. Also, because all of our services are included in a single monthly fee, you always know what you are paying with no hidden or additional costs.

  4. I read ur planning for the Luis's in the business standard. I find ur conclusions surprising to say the least. Also very naive.
    You expect the couple to be able to manage 20 years in retirement in just 83lacs. You should normally not consider the self occupied house.
    In any case , if u make a simple excel and compound inflation annually u will find that funds required are far in excess of this.
