Tips on Finding a Financial Advisor
- Don’t have $1 million to invest? Finding a qualified financial advisor doesn’t have to be hard. SmartAsset’s free tool matches you with up to three financial advisors who serve your area, and you can interview your advisor matches at no cost to decide which one is right for you. If you’re ready to find an advisor who can help you achieve your financial goals, get started now.
- Ask if the advisor has any certifications. They aren’t required by the SEC, so they represent the extra mile an advisor went - or is willing to go. A certified financial planner (CFP), for example, has a fiduciary duty always to work in the best interests of the client. People who aren’t bound by a fiduciary duty (often advisors who are also brokers) only have to provide suitable advice.
