Making Financial Planning Accessible: Choosing Software for Affordability and Ease of Use

Financial planning software is a critical tool for any advisor, coach, or planner, but there is no perfect solution.

When I started Walk You To Wealth, I faced many decisions, including choosing a business structure, potentially defining a niche, establishing a social media presence, etc.; however, one of the most crucial choices was selecting the right financial planning software. The two most important factors in my decision were:

  • Cost: My mission is to help real individuals build real wealth, and charging high fees, such as 1% of assets under management (AUM) or an annual fee close to $5,000, would make my services inaccessible to many who need them. Therefore, keeping costs low was a priority, which needed to be balanced with the importance of investing in the right tool.

  • Client Usability: Having a user-friendly and intuitive tool was equally important as cost. Even though I'm a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), I didn't want a tool that only a CFP would understand.

After evaluating numerous options, I chose Savology, which has been a good fit so far. I also use Canva to make more personalized and custom reports for clients.

Although I've been happy with my choice, I am continuously evaluating new tools to ensure that I am providing clients with the best possible experience for their investment. While there's no perfect tool, prioritizing usability and cost remains crucial for building an accessible business model.
