The Decision Is Critical
Your choices about financial advice have a huge impact over your lifetime. Other than decisions about relationships and careers, these choices may have the biggest impact on your personal life. There are two trends that make finding a financial advisor difficult for investors:
#1- An overload of financial information
Technology now provides investors with too much information. People are overwhelmed with information about investing. They don’t have a tool to shift through all of the information and determine what is useful.
#2- An increasing number of advisors
The number of financial advisors is growing. Professiosnals such as CPAs, Attorneys, Bankers and Insurance Agents are entering the field. As the number of professionals increases, so does the advertising and marketing. Investors also need a tool to choose a financial advisor.
The two trends leave investors overwhelmed. Since the process of finding the right advisor is so difficult, many people don’t take action at all. They end up with someone they’re referred to- maybe through a friend, a relative, or a connection at work.
An investor may end up with an advisor who does not really serve their needs.
This webinar gives the investor a roadmap they can use to choose a financial advisor. You can find an advisor who understands your unique needs. Some may find that they have the time and ability to manage their investment needs on their own.
The goal is to help people move toward making better, more appropriate financial decisions. Informed decisions can make a huge difference over a lifetime.
The course is divided into three parts:
Part 1: An overview of investments- Know some basics
Part 2: Using information- How much can you do yourself?
Part 3: The criteria to find a financial advisor
