What to expect with financial planning

Strategic financial planning is essential to maintaining peace of mind as you move through the ever-changing stages and events of your life. Your UMB experience will begin with an evaluation of your personal and financial circumstances so we can understand where you are now and where you want to be.

Getting to know you

Financial plans are tailored to you—there is no one-size-fits-all strategy—and customization provides the detail and tactics that help you manage your wealth. UMB financial professionals focus on what matters most to you and establish steps to align behaviors with plans so you can get what you want.

Your financial professional will help you discover your areas of strength and identify any areas you may improve upon to maximize success. Whether you want to optimize your lifestyle, establish your legacy or build your wealth, we can offer personalized service and support.

Access to a specialized team

At UMB, your financial journey is our focus. That means your specialized team will provide the experience, support and one-on-one guidance to help you make savvy and sound financial choices. You will have access to specialists in a variety of industries—from investments and trusts to retirement and estate management—to ensure you receive the attention, expertise and personalization you deserve.

How financial planning works

To help you prepare for your financial consultation, below are some steps you can expect once you connect with UMB.

  1. Your team of financial professionals will set time to introduce themselves and get to know you.
  2. An interview will provide an in-depth review of your current spending and saving habits to help establish your plan’s baseline.
  3. Your team will take stock of all of your current assets, debts and income to determine the variables that can influence your plan’s success.
  4. Once your foundational plan is documented, your advisor will help you identify concerns, passions, plans, issues and more—all of which will shape your financial journey.
  5. Short- and long-term goal mapping and execution are the final stages to creating a action-oriented plan.
