Three Reasons  Every Physician Should Have a Certified Financial Planner

There is an African proverb that says, “It takes a village to raise a child.”  The same can be said as it pertains to physicians: “It take a village to ensure the success of a physician.” Every physician needs a team, and a certified financial planner is an essential component of that team.

A certified financial planner can assist physicians in three main ways:

  1. Tax Strategy: A certified financial planner can help develop a financial plan that optimizes growth while decreasing your tax burden.
  2. Retirement Planning: Although many of us love our jobs and would work for free, no physician plans to work forever. It is essential to enlist the expertise of a certified financial planner in order to ensure you are on track to retire when you plan to.
  3. Fiscal Responsibility: Let’s face it. Although we physicians are great at practicing medicine, managing money may not be one of our strong points. A financial planner can help you with budgeting, managing cash flow, and asset management.
