The Importance of Grieving a Financial Loss


As a financial planner and financial therapist, witnessing a client grieving over a financial loss is ubiquitous.  Financial losses include a job, a business failure, a poor investment decision, the loss of a significant financial asset like a car, home, cash, collectable, or precious metals.  Financial losses also include the death or disability of an income earner or breadwinner. The difference of the loss of a loved one from the financial aspect of a loss is that financial losses can be insured against to minimize the financial impact of a loss.  While insurance can mitigate the financial loss, it can’t remove the emotional pain of that loss.
