Financial planning is about aligning values with actions. A comprehensive financial planner uses an integrated approach towards all aspects of a financial situation, including, but not limited to: Insurance & Risk Management, Investment Planning, Tax Planning, Retirement Planning, Employee Benefits, and Estate Planning. Though content is integral, the profession of planning additionally requires a commitment to ethics and awareness of behavioral finance, consumer psychology, family dynamics, customer service, and business development. In other words, a competent, comprehensive financial planner is a well-rounded individual who is interested in people and values service above self.
Loras College provides a differentiated program through our liberal arts tradition, Catholic Social Teaching foundation, and a curriculum based on ethical decision-making and reflective thinking.
