We are nearing the end of our series on Top Ten Retirement mistakes. Today Kevin and Charlie discuss Mistake #2: taking advice from a salesperson rather than a fiduciary.
Financial advice comes in all forms but the only type of professional who is required by law to act in your best interest is a fiduciary. In this video Kevin and Charlie share the different models available to investors to receive financial guidance. They discuss the pros and cons of each model and what questions to ask to determine if your advisor is a fiduciary and the best fit for you. They also explain why working with a fiduciary, and establishing a trusting relationship with a dedicated advisor, is one of the best decisions you can make when it comes to your retirement planning.
