If the stock market went to counseling, it would get a bipolar, manic depressive diagnosis. It swings from what Alan Greenspan called irrational exuberance to its current depression and despair. You know you need to do good financial planning for the future, but with so many banks and financial institutions failing, it’s hard to know whom to trust or what to do. Retirement planning expert Michael Eischen is a voice of reason among the chaos. He focuses on a combination of sound investments, carefully considering tax consequences, carefully considering inheritance issues, and keeping transaction fees low. Today we look at the mistakes people commonly make in financial planning and the principles involved in getting it right. In particular we’ll focus on the the Five Biggest Mistakes in Retirement Planning.

The 5 biggest financial planning mistakes are:

  • chasing recommendations
  • reacting to markets (as opposed to following a strategy)
  • not considering tax consequences
  • paying excessive fees
  • inheritance planning mistakes
