Selecting an Investment Advisor

In selecting an Investment Advisor it is important for you to know the legal relationship the person operates under; a professional broker – “suitability” versus a professional financial advisor “fiduciary” standard of care.

In our “It’s Your Money” workshop series we only use presenters who have a Fiduciary (“best interest”) duty of care to their present clients and do not have the “ability” (not licensed) to sell financial products.  Those who have presented at our workshops are listed below.  We suggest highly you meet with at least 3 professionals before you select any individual or firm.

In our workshops every presenter is required to complete the “ASK FIRST” form which discloses the individual’s licenses, credentials, how they get paid, education level, standard of professional care and if they are associated with anyone who sells financial product.  We believe one of the most important issues is for you to understand is HOW IS THE PERSON PAID One of the first things to do is to check out the individual on Finra’s broker check and to review how to select such a professional. http://www.finra.org/investors/smartinvesting/gettingstarted/selectinginvestmentprofessional/p117280

When asked about a financial advisor the most common question is about performance of the investment.  Performance is important but unless you understand the goals & objectives, risk tolerance, asset allocation, tax bracket, time horizon, etc. a number does not have much meaning.

So what does a fiduciary financial advisor/bono fide financial advisor, a professional that puts the client’s interests first and agrees that conflicts will be eliminated or discussed actually do?
