What is a Financial Advisor?

Financial Advisors at work

A financial advisor is a very broad term but generally it applies to someone who helps guide another person’s finances with a set goal such as retirement or paying for a child’s college tuition. It can also include investment advice, life, home, and auto insurance, income tax preparation, and estate planning.

Who needs a Financial Advisor?

It is a common misconception that financial advisors service primarily wealthy people with large, diverse investment portfolios. While someone with a broad investment strategy and many assets is a great fit for a financial advisor’s services, just about any person can benefit from a sound money management plan. Good advice applies the same to the middle class as it does to the mega rich, after all.
