Shelby County, KY Financial Advisor FAQs

Most people find budgeting overwhelming (even though they may understand frugality) financial advisors often offer a course correction feature whereby they'll take care of your money management responsibilities so you don't have to worry about them. It can seem difficult at first but rest assured it is an incredible experience getting help so you can let go!
Being a financial advisor is not all about making money. It takes hard work, knowledge and patience to be truly great at what you do. A good advisor must have an understanding of securities law and ethics standards specific to the career field in which he or she works while also learning more about specific types of investments.
How financial advisors get paid varies on the situation. However, if they are working with an independent broker/dealer who offers commission-based services, it's likely that your advisor will get compensated via commissions on the securities they buy for you.
You need someone who is knowledgeable, trustworthy, experienced, able to adjust plans as your needs change over time, and has competitive fees. Ask about their investment philosophy - you want someone who thinks similarly to you - but don't rule out hiring them if they have ideas with which you disagree - these are the folks that CAN help challenge YOU into making better decisions for YOU!
