I know plenty of Certified Financial Planners whose personal style is so strange, different, or off-putting that the only way I could work with them personally is if I was in a coma. They’ve got the credential, but they’d be the wrong fit for me (and I can say the same thing about people with virtually every credential out there). Hire a person, not a credential; when times get tough, it’s going to be the human being—and not the letters after her name—that you rely on. Smart Investor Tip Rogue advisors can throw a lot of letters after their name to make themselves look impressive; they only get caught when someone checks with the credentialing agency and ﬁnds out that they’re a fraud.
Most advisors want to get all of your available resources under management— which may entail selling investments you have now—rather than only handling some of your money. And critics say that a fee-only advisor can become disinterested over time, because he gets paid regardless of whether you act upon his advice. Possible conflicts: The advisor’s focus will be on getting assets in the door, and their advice may skew in that direction. Say you receive an inheritance and want to know if you should pay down the mortgage or invest the proceeds; the advisor’s pay goes up if you invest the money and stays flat if you pay off the debt.
I never quoted that financial planner again; since then, I have always done a complete background check on advisors before I will let them act as an expert in my column. The radio fallacy is another good one. Most of the financial advisors who are on the radio have paid for the time, meaning they bought their own show to use as a personal advertising vehicle. Oh, they may rent out some of that time to friends and associates, making the show easier to do and making it sound more legitimate, but they’re doing an on-air marketing pitch.
