College Funding Planning When it comes to college funding planning, most financial advisers recommend a truly basic approach. In most cases, an advisor recommends that a client fund a specific investment product such as a 529 plan whether a student has two or seventeen years before college. Clients are typically instructed to put as much money as possible into these plans. The number is usually unrealistic and in most cases, this is the full extent of the college funding plan. This is not our approach. Typically, the parents we see have a child going to college right around the corner. The grades are what they are. The savings are what they are.
