With today’s market volatility and historic inflation, having a trusted advisor to work with and plan for a brighter future is essential. There’s just too much going on to do everything yourself. So it’s a shame that so many people are under the misconception that financial advisors are only for the ultra wealthy. On the contrary, advisors work with a broad range of clients, creating a path toward financial success by helping you avoid common financial mistakes. And did you know that working with a financial advisor is actually one of the biggest “secrets” to achieving financial success?
As a current client, you know firsthand how nerve-wracking it can be to take the first step in hiring a financial advisor. But you also know the multitude of benefits that can come from a strong client-advisor relationship; less stress, improved financial security, and increased confidence in your future are just a few. You can always count on the 1on1 Financial team to guide you through life’s toughest financial challenges.
Do your friends, family, and coworkers have the same type of support system?
When a Financial Advisor Can Help
Even if your friends or family feel confident in their finances, they may not realize the common mistakes they’re making or the investment opportunities they’re missing out on. A financial advisor can look at every piece of your finances and help you understand the larger picture of how to achieve true financial security.
A financial advisor can help you navigate common life events, like:
- Significant changes to income
- Marriage or divorce
- Buying or selling a house
- Having a child
- Planning for higher education
- Severe disability or illness
- Passing of a spouse
- Transition to retirement
- Questions about investments
- Questions about insurance
- Questions about tax-management strategies
- Legacy planning for heirs
Choose Your Advisor Carefully
It’s never too late to hire an advisor, and no matter what season of life you’re in, you can reap the benefits an advisor provides. That being said, hiring the right advisor is a task that should not be taken lightly. There are many different certifications, designations, and licenses in the financial services industry, each with their own education and experience requirements. Be sure you know exactly who you’re hiring before signing on the dotted line.
The CFP® certification is commonly regarded as the industry gold standard, but CFA®, Chartered Investment Counselor (CIC), and Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) are also highly sought-after designations.
