Gainesville, VA Financial Advisor FAQs

First, you should choose someone whose investment philosophy matches your own. The key is having honest conversations with your advisor about what risks are prudent for you to take in order to meet the long-term goals of both parties.
Financial advisors help maintain both individuals' portfolios and firms' entire investment portfolios by providing advice on investments, tax-planning strategies, risk management techniques, asset allocating, diversification of investors' portfolios based on tolerance for risk and personal budget considerations.
The first issue to consider when choosing a financial advisor is whether they are adequately insured to deal with the size of assets you might be responsible for investing for them. The next consideration will be the quality of their advice - this can be measured by how much thought they put into decisions about your finances, how well they have understood your priorities, the extent to which the investment plan has been tailored specifically for you and takes account any individual circumstances that might strain resources in future years. Good advisors will also offer regular reviews so changes in circumstances over time can be incorporated into your strategy as necessary.
Yes, if you doubt that you'll know how to invest your savings or if managing your investments would strain your time. Most people don't have the time to research investment opportunities and balance their own portfolios for retirement, which is why it's common for financial advisors to offer this service to customers at a reasonable cost.
