HOW TO CHOOSE A FINANCIAL PLANNER
Education is important.
Your financial planner should have the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM designation and be required to act as a Fiduciary (which means in your best interest).
Personality is key.
The right planner for you will meet your communication needs and will make you feel comfortable when diving into your own financial details. They’ll also be happy to dig into or break down topics to ensure you’re on track with recommendations and feel educated and empowered around your money
Experience is a must.
Your financial planner should be able to speak to the types of experience they’ve had in the industry and the variety of clients they work with now and it the past.
Transparency is fundamental.
The financial planner you choose to work with will openly discuss their planning process and fees in detail, outline expectations, and then meet them.
Fee-only is a plus.
Look for a financial planner who will only be compensated for the advice they are giving you and not for selling you a product.
Asking questions is important when it comes to choosing a Financial Planner that is right for you. Make sure you’re comfortable with your planner based on their education, experience, personality and fees.
