The Need for a Financial Advisor

The Need for a Financial Advisor

There was an article published last summer that states there are 7 times in your life when you NEED a financial advisor. It indicates failing to talk to one could be a mistake. The article from a well-known and respected publication lists times ranging from getting a new job to retirement. 
As a service provider, the article raised significantly more questions than it answered. 
    – Are there really only seven issues to discuss with a financial advisor?
    – Is it a different reason or level of expertise every time?
    – How would you bring the financial advisor up to speed on your personal situation?
    – What happens after they dispense this essential information?
    – How would they get paid for this one time advice?
When faced with these crucial financial times in your life, a better strategy would be to create a relationship with a trusted advisor and seek their advice on any and all issues affecting your financial situation.  It is clear that almost all of life’s decisions have a financial and an emotional aspect, and it can be extremely difficult to separate the two. It emphasizes the importance of having a relationship based on more than just a discreet transaction or need.
