4 Things to look for when hiring a Financial Advisor

A financial planner professional helps you organize your finances and projects the results of your savings and investments in preparation for retirement.

Financial advisors help you invest your money to reach your financial goals which could include retirement, saving for college, minimizing your tax burden, giving to charity, budgeting, debt reduction, or generating income.

Here are four things to look for when hiring a Financial Advisor

1. Provides Holistic Advice.

This covers strategies to not only build wealth, but also to manage expenses, protect your family, lifestyle and assets, plan your income for now and in retirement, and determine how to pass your wealth onto the next generation, all in a tax effective manner.

2. Provides customized advice that is aligned with your family’s dreams, hopes and desires and what you wish to accomplish over time.

Holistic Wealth Management is based on the principle that you, the investor, are far more than the sum of your parts. Every area of your life affects your point of view, the things you value, and your goals for both short- and long-term investment.
