The financial decisions you make are an important part of achieving your goals and preparing for retirement. How do you know if your financial advisor is the right fit to help you succeed?
If you are working with an advisor, it’s important to know what to expect out of them. You’ll want someone who works with you to create a written retirement plan, a tax minimalization plan in retirement, and an estate plan.
What should you watch out for with an advisor? Sometimes you may have the wrong advisor, but how can you tell? Are there different kinds of advisors for different kinds of needs?
There are instances when it is time to make a switch or in other cases you might already be with the right advisor for you. Before making a leap, try to re-engage with your advisor to revise your plan and see if that better meets your needs.
If you are considering switching to a new advisor, ask the right questions to make sure they are a good fit for you. Are they a fiduciary? What are the fees? What strategies will they implement, especially in a downturn?
