Santa Fe County, NM Financial Advisor FAQs

Financial advisors mainly talk to people about their finances and how they can invest or save better. Their job is to be unbiased in order for them to provide the best information possible while also able to take some risks and push some boundaries if necessary (within professional ethics).
The reason people need financial advisors is because they're trying to avoid mistakes that could eventually cause them harm in the future. Finances can be complicated. Qualified professionals are available who are capable of guiding you through your decisions with relative ease.
It's important to ask about their licenses. You don't want an advisor who doesn't have the credentials they're supposed to have, because that could end up doing more harm than good.
Financial advisors get paid primarily through commissions on the sale of investment products.
