PERSONAL FINANCIAL PLANNING SITES

www.ihatefinancialplanning.com

Don't let the URL fool you. Whether they love or hate financial planning, PFP professionals and clients can find useful information at this Web site. Visitors can register for free to access articles, checklists and interactive forms on topics such as annuities, asset allocation, budgeting, estate planning and IRAs. Members also can find financial calculators, weekly tips and a guide to decoding financial jargon.

www.msfinancialsavvy.com

This site bills itself as "a woman's one stop on the Web for business, finance and careers" and with its many links to investment information, visitors can believe it. It includes links to glossaries and tutorials on how to find stock quotes, as well as a message board so registered users can create what the site calls an "investment club forum" where either new, intermediate or advanced investors can post questions about and get replies to their clubs' investment concerns.
