What is the difference between Financial Planning and Investment Management? 

Consider the iPhone and iPod

The iPhone and iPod are both beautiful devices that can improve how you live. iPods come pre-installed with apps that meet most basic needs of a person that wants to listen to music and store photos. It can deliver on these objectives with incredible efficiency but little room for customization. By the expectations of today, an iPod is incomplete. You simply wouldn't expect to use an iPod to engage in your friend's lives on Snapchat, request a car on Uber or find a boyfriend on Tinder. For that, you use an iPhone.

Investment Management is like an iPod, while Financial Planning is like an iPhone. Investment Management offers some of the solutions, but Financial Planning is the platform for which you will organize your life and reach your goals.
