Choosing a Financial Advisor
The financial services field is broad and there are a number of different types of advisors who offer a range of qualifications, experience, and services. Determine what your primary needs are, such as: help establishing a nest egg, planning your retirement, or buying a house, and look for advisors with experience in those areas.
While most advisors can assist you in developing general long-term financial strategies, many advisors specialize in niches like total wealth management, services for business owners, or financial advice for women. If you need specific experience, make sure you seek out advisors who qualify.
