Financial Planning Jump Start Includes 26-Week Access to Comprehensive Education, Planning Resources and Group Coaching Support

A course for professionals who want to enhance their Comprehensive Financial Planning knowledge...

The APEG Foundations of Financial Planning Course helps you to "Fill the Gaps" in your knowledge of the five commonly recognized segments in a financial plan (Estate Planning, Tax Planning, Risk Management/ Insurance, Retirement Planning and Investment Planning) along with the additional topics of Employee Benefits, Social Security, Medicare and College Planning. 

The Course provides over 24 contact hours of education along with client-friendly discussion points and communication techniques to immediately assist participants in their practice.


A proven approach to Comprehensive Financial Planning

APEG's proprietary Goal Oriented Actively Linked Segments (G.O.A.L.S.) approach makes Comprehensive Planning approachable without sacrificing thoroughness for both professionals and the clients they serve. It follows a disciplined order of addressing the segments of planning so that information gathered, and goals addressed in one segment are used to support the segments that follow. The approach recognizes that decisions in one segment of a comprehensive plan may have consequences in one or more of the other segments, thus demonstrating the linked nature of decision making. 

G.O.A.L.S. is supported by APEG with:

2 Hours of quick-start overview educational content.

In-depth educational content to identify and explore planning opportunities observed throughout the interview process.

Customized support material for both live and virtual client meetings.

Advisor Group's Next Level Coaching Support

Advisor Group's business coaching consulting team supports financial professionals to own, grow and manage a successful business. Financial Planning Jump Start includes 18 hours of development coaching from a team of experienced coaches. The program will incorporate coaching and role playing throughout the 26 week Jump Start program starting with foundational education and moving through the process of gathering client information, prioritizing goals, analyzing client data, presenting plan recommendations and implementing strategies and solutions.
