Welcome to Financial Planning Week 2010
Today sees the start of Financial Planning Week 2010.
Running from 22nd to 28th November, Financial Planning Week aims to raise awareness of the benefits of Financial Planning.
Financial Planning encompasses a range of activities, from taking simple DIY steps to improve your money management through to working with a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) professional to create and implement a Financial Plan.
According to the Financial Planning Survey 2010, commissioned by the Institute of Financial Planning with help from National Savings & Investments, people in the UK are more worried about their money than ever before and need help creating a sensible Financial Plan.
The survey found that 43% of people worry about money “more often than not” and a further 17% worry about money “all of the time”.
Only 3% of those people asked by the survey this year said that they never worry about money.
Compared to previous years, it appears that fewer people are taking the time to identify their financial priorities and put plans in place to secure these.
