Asset protection is an important component of financial security. During your financial planning journey, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional is likely to integrate asset protection into your plan for financial security. This part of the planning process is important for keeping your valued possessions safe in the instance that you or your loved ones were to be subjected to legal or financial threats.
If you want to ensure that your finances are protected, take a look at the checklist below. This list covers just a few of the several ways that your financial security can be safeguarded.
What can you check off your list to ensure that your assets are protected?
- Be sure to have insurance — One of the first things you can do to secure your assets is have insurance. Getting insurance can help prevent you from having to cover the costs of lawsuit damages and lawyers.
- Utilize estate planning — Another way you can protect your assets is through estate planning. A CFP® professional can help you and your attorney plan for after you pass away and prevent your assets from probate.
- Choose the right business structure — Businesses are also vulnerable to lawsuits and liens that have the potential to directly affect your personal finances. If you own a business, you should be certain that you have the right business entity.
