Die Mehrzahl vermögender Kunden ist über die aktuelle Höhe und realistischen Werte ihres Vermögens unzureichend informiert. Zudem werden die Risiko-/ Ertragsprofile einzelner Anlagen, die Risikofaktoren gewachsener Vermögensstrukturen und auch steuerliche Belastungen von privaten Anlegern häufig falsch eingeschätzt. Kurzfristig orientierte Maßnahmen gefährden Lebensziele - es fehlen eine klare Zustandsanalyse, eine langfristige Strategie sowie eine professionelle Betreuung. Private Finanzplanung gilt deshalb im Markt für Finanzberatung und Altersversorgung als Schlüsseldienstleistung. Finanzinstitute und freiberufliche Berater entwickeln verstärkt neue Vertriebskonzepte, in denen der ganzheitliche Ansatz aus der Vernetzung von Anlage-, Finanzierungs-, Versicherungs-, Immobilien-, Steuer- und Erbschaftsfragen im Vordergrund steht. In diesem Buch erhalten Finanz- und Vermögensberater einen umfassenden Überblick zur aktuellen Marktsituation, wertvolle Tipps für die Vorgehensweise im Beratungsprozess und erfahren, wie Financial Planning in der Gestaltung privater Finanzen Gewinn bringend eingesetzt werden kann.
