Interviewing Financial Advisors
You Do Not Need to Spend Hours Interviewing Financial Advisors to Reach Your Retirement Goals.
Saving for your retirement is one of the most important things that you can do. And, in order to do it well, many people insist that you need to have the right financial advisor to guide you along the way. However, when it comes to planning for your retirement, how much time can you afford to spend interviewing advisors?
Think about it for a minute: if you were going to be interviewing advisors, what questions would you ask? Would you ask about the advisor's experience? Would you ask about their own investment portfolios?
But even if you were able to ask all of the right questions while interviewing advisors, would you be sure that you were getting the best advice? Even if you spend weeks or months interviewing advisors, are you sure that you would choose the right person for you?
In order to find the financial advisor who could help you the most, you need to be sure that - while interviewing advisors - you are able to find the person who will get to know you and your retirement goals. You need to find the advisor who is willing to take the time to understand what you want from your retirement, whether you want to be able to travel, to help finance your grandchild's education or to be able to move into an active adult community where you can continue to enjoy your life.
When you are interviewing advisors, you need to be sure that the person who you select to help you plan for your financial future is someone who understand that you deserve to have some control of your retirement planning. You deserve to be able to have a say in which stocks, bonds and mutual funds you invest. You deserve to choose the retirement savings plan that is right for you.
But in order to make the right choices, in order to know which savings and investment accounts will help you to reach your retirement goals, you need to understand the way that those accounts have performed and how they are expected to perform. Even before you begin interviewing advisors, you need to make an effort to learn more.
One way of doing that is to download the free retirement calculator at the bottom of this page. With it, you will be able to enter simple information about the savings and investments that you currently have. You will be able to look at the way your accounts have performed. You will also be able to determine whether or not you are on the right path - the path that will allow you to achieve all of your retirement goals.
You will be able to look at projections for the stocks, bonds and mutual funds that you have invested in. You will be able to see how, up to twenty five years from now, the income that you have available will have been affected by changing interest rates and the rising costs associated with inflation.
More importantly, you will be able to get projections for how the changes you have considered making to your investment strategy will affect the income that you have available when you retire. You will be able to determine - without moving your money - whether a different mutual fund or a different stock portfolio would enable you to reach your goals.
And then, once you have had the opportunity to look at the investments that you have and the investments that you plan to make, you will be contacted for a free consultation with a financial advisor - someone who is in your area and who understands that the person who should be making choices that affect your retirement savings is you.
Rather than spending your time interviewing advisors, why not spend some time looking at your investments? Rather than interviewing advisors, why not evaluate your savings and investment strategy?
