You have a vision for your retirement. But developing financial strategies, choosing investments and maintaining them throughout retirement are things many people just don’t feel qualified to tackle. Fortunately, help is at hand. A financial advisor can give you a holistic view of the process, help you plan and play an active part in your financial strategy. An advisor can give you a better understanding of how everything works — giving you more control over your money.
Finding the right fit
Choosing a good financial advisor isn’t always easy. You’ll want to do more than just take a recommendation from a friend or relative. Once you’ve found some prospects, you’ll need to conduct an interview. After all, you’re hiring this person to help you manage your future financial well-being. You’ll want to thoroughly understand the advisor’s approach to financial planning. Ask questions like: Do you take a holistic view or focus on specific objectives? What are your qualifications and professional credentials? How are you compensated? Many financial professionals have an alphabet soup of letters behind their names. Like anything in life, you get what you pay for.
