Hillside, IL Financial Advisor FAQs

Financial advisors get paid in a number of ways. They may charge an hourly or flat fee for time spent helping their clients plan for retirement, save more money, or establish financial security. Others are paid on commission for selling investments like stocks and bonds with high fees attached to them.
If you're a beginner investor, an advisor is going to be your best bet. A financial advisor will help interpret market data and recommend portfolios for your needs.
The best way to find a financial advisor is to ask his/her former clients how they would rate their services. Since a good advisor will be in the business long enough to accumulate previous clients, this should not be an issue or too difficult to find out.
There are many types of financial advisors, but the main concern is to find one that has CFP certification. Certified financial planners are held to a strict standard of fiduciary responsibility—an advisor who isn't certified may not be acting in your best interest.
