But Have You Spoken with a Professional Financial Advisor?

There are so many things going on in global and domestic politics and that might potentially be unnerving to investors. Now may be the time to seek advice from a professional financial advisor - not your cousin, not that guy at work, not the neighbor, not someone’s wife’s friend’s mother, etc. While they might mean well, they may not know and understand your full financial picture and their advice might be skewed toward their own experiences, biases, politics, and opinions that are not necessarily appropriate for your situation. Even two people with the same job, income, and family size may have different financial needs, risk tolerances, time horizons, and more.

Yes, this is a time when people are talking about what they heard on the news, what they read, what they feel. The thing is, they are often talking with people who aren’t in the “money” business. Financial advisors have access to wealth managers, research analysts, portfolio strategists, and other resources. Financial advisors can help to assess your personal circumstances and have a fiduciary responsibility to put your needs ahead of their own and to disclose any potential conflicts of interest. Financial advisors strive to help investors make informed decisions every day.
