When do I fire my investment advisor?
When he sends you an email like the one below.
As a Registered Investment Advisor I receive emails of this type (despite my efforts to unsubscribe) pretty much every hour. This year, the webinars and seminars promising to tell me what is going to happen in 2015 are coming out in force.
The day I send you a coaching-event invitation with a title like this one is the day I ask you to fire me. Don’t ask questions, don’t think twice about it. Just give me the axe.
Check out the bulleted items they promise to solve. How could they possibly know? There is no way anyone can make enough correct, consecutive guesses about the future to serve your needs for a sound investment strategy to last the next 40 to 80 years.
