WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A WEALTH MANAGER

finding A WEALTH MANAGER WHO FITS YOUR NEEDS AND GOALS

Choosing the right wealth management firm can be a daunting task. With the wide array of expertise, ethical integrity, knowledge, and value available in a financial advisor, how do you find the right person to guide your investment strategy?

Considering all of these variables, one remains constant – the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) designation represents the highest professional standards in investment management. It is recognized globally as a symbol of an investment professionals' expertise, skill, and adherence to a strict code of ethics that guarantees your interests are put first.

 

Make sure a CFA Charterholder is part of your wealth management team when looking for reliable, skilled, ethical, and objective wealth managers.

KEY QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR POTENTIAL FINANCIAL ADVISOR

An integral part of finding the right wealth team is to meet with and interview potential wealth managers to find one that fits your needs.

  • Are you a fiduciary?
  • How are you compensated for the recommendations and services you provide me?
  • Who will be on my wealth management team?
  • How do you plan on helping me identify and implement my financial goals?
  • How will you use technology for my benefit?
  • How will you customize your investment strategy to fit my individual tax situation?
  • What other services do you provide?

All CFA charterholders are fiduciaries and legally bound by both fiduciary rules and CFA Institute’s strict code of ethical conduct to act in your best interests.
