Equipping Points:

When you’re looking for an advisor that can work with you to build a retirement plan that meets your individual needs, there are just some things that you don’t want to see.

As advisors, we have a different perspective on the industry. We work every day to help clients manage their portfolios and position them for success. So we know bad practices when we see them.

On this episode of the Cover Your Assets KC podcast, David will talk about some of the things that drive him and other advisors crazy. If you come across any of these with your advisor, don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s your money after all.

As you listen to the show you’ll see that it really comes down to personalization. Retirement plans need to be structured differently for every individual that comes into the office. And transparency needs to be a part of that process. That’s what we hope you take away from this conversation.
