Yes, I know you can read and attempt to do it yourself. I've learned the hard way that even using YouTube videos, I still need a plumber, electrician and car mechanic. My reading and learning helps me understand the situation better but I have no intention of making that my profession. Research and comprehension keep me from being ripped-off or led astray.
A true financial adviser plays a sacred role and exercises a societal obligation to help people cope with money anxiety as stated in a recent article of Investment News.
Your adviser should be able to extract fact from fiction:
- are your fears or concerns about money well founded?
- are your goals realistic?
- are your values reflected in your investments?
- are you clear about where you are today and where you want to be in 5 years, 10 years, retirement?
A Robo adviser cannot feel your emotions or understand the cycles of life to help you make good decisions over your lifetime.
A true adviser honors your values, respects your worries and concerns and helps you accomplish your goals. And, they bring expertise to the table; the expertise that many years of study, client interaction, fluctuating markets built their experience and wisdom.
Good financial advisers are out there; you just have to search for them.
Be $ Smart - take the time to find the financial adviser who's right for you to relieve your money anxiety!
