Grass Valley, CA Financial Advisor FAQs

Make sure you know your risk tolerance and your financial goals - do they align? What is the advisor's experience with similar situations in the past? Do they offer investment advice, fee-based or commission based? What is their client portfolio like (i.e., how much money has been entrusted to them)?
The best place to start is with your firm's HR department. They should be able to direct you to a list of pre-qualified brokers who are trustworthy, qualified, and adhere to the company's ethics. Once you have narrowed down your choices, it will be up to you the client whether or not they want representation by someone at that broker.
Typically, the payment is handled through a commission. Advisors are awarded an incentive for either product sales or often as a percentage of assets under management (AUM). Because this fee is directly related to the amount of money that an advisor manages on behalf of their client, advisors can earn much more by increasing AUM.
Yes, in many cases it is important for you to give in the best information in order to make an informed decision about your future.
