Partners in investment and growth Financial planning Standards Council of Canada, 3 year Longitudinal Study involving Canadians from August 2009 to August Objective of the study was to determine if there were marked differences in professed well-being between those who have a comprehensive financial plan as opposed to those who have received limited, targeted advice (such as tax planning, retirement planning, etc.) and also compared to those who have received no professional planning advice. For the purposes of this study, financial planning was defined as follows: Comprehensive Planning (CP): The main financial advisor has provided financial planning for major life goals and events, or at least three of the planning components: household budgeting, tax, retirement, estate planning, investing, debt or risk management. Limited Planning (LP): The main financial advisor has provided advice or services related to one or two of the planning components. No Planning (NP): There has been no help obtained from a financial advisor, regardless of the situation.
