People discussing finances

Your life’s plan.

Whether you’re planning for your kids’ college education, your retirement, organizing your insurance to make sure you’re adequately covered, or preparing for proper distribution of your estate assets, Midland’s financial planning experts will help keep you on track.


What to expect.

Financial planning is more than just a couple of conversations with your financial advisor—it’s a process to determine the best financial route for you, your family and your business.


Financial planning in 5 steps.

  1. Understanding your financial situation & goals.
    First, we’ll sit down to get an understanding of your current financial situation and your future goals related to you, your family and your business (if you’re a business owner).

  2. Developing a financial plan.
    We’ll work with you to determine if your goals are on track by identifying areas of progress and areas for improvement.

  3. Tailoring recommendations.
    If we feel your financial plan is going to fall short of your goals, we’ll recommend new strategies—so your plan is on solid ground from the start.

  4. Assisting with implementation.
    Changes to your plan may take time. We’ll help create a schedule for implementing your plan.

  5. Annual monitoring & review.
    We conduct annual reviews to ensure you're still on track to meet your established goals and make adjustments based on life events that may change your objectives.
