Five Reasons To Hire A Financial Advisor

In an age of political unrest, ever changing regulations, and an array of different financial services offerings many Americans could benefit from using a wholistic Financial Advisor. More often than not, we find ourselves sitting down with clients who have gone years without getting the help they need (before meeting us, that is). In this week’s blog, we have decided to put together a list of concerns that trigger people to reach out to an advisor.

  1. You Are Feeling Overwhelmed
    We can help you identify your goals and develop a plan that is going to help you achieve them. You work too hard to spend your time studying the complicated world of finance, so let us do it for you.
  2. You Are Not Sure Who to Trust
    If you think you are being sold a product rather than sound advice, you are probably right. It may be time to talk to your current advisor about how they get paid. Your advisor works for you, and should be compensated fairly for their work, but it is important that you understand what their motivations are behind their advice. That is why we take so much pride in our simple and transparent fee structure. We can easily explain exactly what you are paying for our services, so that you can be sure that our best interests are aligned with yours.
  3. You Want to Leave a Legacy
    Whether you want your property or business to stay in the family for generations to come or you want to leave a make a meaningful contribution to a cause that you are passionate about, you need help designing a plan. Without professional oversight your assets could be diminished by after death taxes or worse, not get to their intended destination at all.
  4. You Have a Business to Run
    Is your business structure right for you? What additional benefits could you be providing your employees? Are your business systems correctly aligned with your personal financial goals? What is the long-term plan to grow and expand? We can address these concerns by creating a cohesive plan- implement the correct tools to maximize overall efficiency, monitor the results and adjust the plan as circumstances change over time.
  5. You Are Not a Robot
    Even the most cool and calculated investors benefit from the opinion of a third party. It is human nature to react emotionally to fluctuations in the market, even though we know historically such volatility is to be expected. Having a professional can help talk you through your fears, and build confidence that your plan is strong enough to withstand market downturns.
