At financial filosophy, there is a clear commitment to both the art and the science of financial planning. The science of financial planning is the most familiar and commonly known aspect. It’s the dollars and cents, the actuarial tables and historical data, the stock quotes and trend lines that, in the mind of an expert, consolidate into the elements of a financial plan. The art of financial planning is a more subtle thing – a way of looking at the data that includes a subjective, creative, value-infused vision of reaching goals. If the science is the brains, then the art is the soul. You are at the center of the process as a clear pathway is seen through the existing environment that leads you to your goal.
