A: A fee-only financial advisor must act in a fiduciary standard for their clients which means that they must always act in your best interest. The majority of advisors in the financial services industry act in a suitability standard which is based on your financial status and goals but may not always be in your best interest.
Fee-only financial advisors receive the fee for services provided and do not take part in any additional commissions from brokerage firms, mutual fund companies or insurance providers. They have no additional incentives for any form of managed account.
Nearly 9 in 10 consumers say they would feel more confident working with an advisor who holds a financial planning designation. The CFP® certification is recognized as the highest standard in personal financial planning. CFP® professionals are required to have a college degree, complete advanced classes in financial planning, pass a six hour comprehensive exam have at least three years of full-time financial planning experience and agree to the CFP Board’s Standards of Professional Conduct and Code of Ethics.
