Second Opinions Are Good For Your Financial Health
Your Portfolio (And Your Heirs) Will Thank You
If your doctor said you need open heart surgery, you would probably get a second opinion before you went under the knife. Experts say you should adopt the same proactive attitude about your financial health.
“Even if your financial advisor seems to be doing a good job, when it comes to your money one rule applies: never take anything for granted,” says Paul Ahern, a Certified Financial Planner® and a founding partner of WealthTrust Arizona.
“It is always good to have a second set of eyes look over your portfolio and evaluate your investment strategy,” Ahern says. “You could actually be losing money if you stick with the wrong financial advisor and financial plan.”
When you are looking at your finances, ask yourself these important questions:
- Does my financial advisor have advanced professional designations, such as Certified Financial Planner (CFP) or Chartered Financial Advisor (CFA)?
- Is my current financial plan structured to leverage the most current and relevant information available?
- Am I making a reasonable return on investment (ROI) for the fees I pay my investment advisor?
To get a second opinion on your portfolio and investment strategy, call Paul Ahern directly at (800) 694-5994 or visit www.WealthTrust Arizona.com to learn more.
