Financial Planning combines the skill sets of financial managers with that of a more relationship-oriented individual.
They typically work with clients either in daily, one-time transactions at the bank or as lifelong, trusted confidants who fully manage their client's wealth. These are professional people whose expertise and knowledge is valued by those they serve, whether it's to make a deposit, recommend a life insurance policy, or manage a retirement fund.
People who enter the pathway of Business Finance are process-oriented. They like to see numbers add up and enjoy problem solving as a result. From entry level billing clerks to CFOs of major corporations, everyone in this cluster enjoys math and most likely is skilled with computers and accounting software as well.
