Finding the best financial advice that works for you

Finance RSS Feed

Everywhere you go you will get different financial advice and advice that suits some will not necessarily suit others. You need to find what works best for you and go from there. With the recent recession it has taught us one thing and that is that you do need a financial plan, even a basic plan that helps you to save more and spend less, particularly on credit.

But how do you know what financial advice really is good advice?

Although there is a lot of different financial advice available the end decision is yours to make. You know best what type of lifestyle you live, what type of lifestyle you would like to live and what your goals are for the future. Any advice that you receive is simply advice and an option for you to consider, but you are the one that needs to make the ultimate choice for the benefit of your financial future.

When you do find a financial adviser that you can trust and that gives you good advice that will suit your lifestyle, then you can develop a good relationship and they can help you with your finance decision. Here are some things to look for when choosing a financial adviser.

1. When visiting a financial adviser you need to know if they are tied to the company that they are working for. A ‘tied’ financial agent works for a company and are tied down to specifically sell and promote the products and services of that company. So even though there might be better financial options elsewhere, they will not show you those options because they are selling you their product and only their product. A tide financial adviser is bound to the company they are employed by and they can help you to some degree by showing you which of their products would be more suited to you, however their advice is biased toward their own products. They will not tell you if there is advice elsewhere that would benefit you more.

2. Many financial advisers will make a great deal of their income by way of commission on what they sell. Because they work on a commission basis they are concerned mainly about making a sale so they can earn money, if they don’t make a sale then they don’t make money. Some advisers will try to sell you extra products or services that you don’t really need just to make extra commission.

When choosing a financial adviser make sure that you know what commissions they earn or what the total fees will come to. Don’t fall into the trap of buying everything that they offer because it might not always be in your best interest.

3. Will your financial adviser accept fiduciary responsibility? This is a very important factor to determine whether the financial adviser is working in your best interest or not. An adviser that accepts fiduciary responsibility is obligated under the law to act in the client’s best interest. If an adviser does not accept fiduciary responsibility then they are not obligated to act in your best interest but only in a way that doesn’t hurt you.

4. Does the financial adviser or planner help you with different aspects of your financial plan? Some advisers are qualified in specific areas and only offer advice in that area in which case you would need to seek another adviser for help in other areas. A good adviser should be able to help you in all aspects of financial planning, including insurance, investment and debt management.

These four tips should hopefully help you in your quest to find a good financial adviser that can help you keep your finances on track and have a healthy financial future. Finances can be confusing and overwhelming at times and although it does cost to see a financial adviser they will usually be able to save you a lot of money in the long term.
