Financial transitions, however, are different from routine changes, are less common and are more consequential. They typically involve a passage – moving from one stage in life to another. Transitions require a period of adjustment to new circumstances in life, possibly to a change in wealth, or to a change in marital status. Even the prospect of retirement can be a transition affecting not only money and financial security, but also affecting the daily lives of both parties in a marriage.
Traditional investment management and financial planning provide only the technical solutions. However, neuropsychology explains that the personal and emotional aspects of a financial transition must be addressed before a successful technical solution can be arrived at and achieved. Each financial transition requires personal guidance to ensure that the cloud of emotions – clouding good judgment and decision-making – are minimized and made cogent, so that intelligent choices can be made.
