Choosing the Right Investment Advisor

If you are interested in investments and are looking for a financial advisor or broker, it is important to understand the various titles and credentials that may come along with the person or firm you hire. While there are a number of advisors who have the right credentials and the track record to prove their ability, there are a number of individuals who don’t have the best designations available. You should do your research before you hire someone to handle your finances and investments.

Some designations are not what they seem and can be used to help an advisor manipulate an investor. The credentials you want to look for often require the advisor to endure countless hours of study and training, multiple tests, and ongoing education that keeps them up to date on all of the rules and regulations.

You may also look at other factors to determine if an advisor is right for you such as registration with FINRA, the SEC, or state agencies. This means that the advisor is in good standing and can most likely be trusted to operate within regulations to help you invest properly. If an individual has questionable credentials and is not a registered advisor, it is wise to stay away and find someone who is more qualified to handle your finances.

Choosing the right broker or financial advisor is crucial to your investment portfolio and making sure that this person is qualified is important.

If you invested with an advisor who portrayed certain credentials but they turned out to be false or unqualified, it is important to make sure you take legal action. Oftentimes, these advisors cost their investors a significant amount of money and the only way to recover these losses is to have legal counsel on your side.
