You know a situation is bad when the President of the United States has to get involved and that’s exactly what’s happening right now in the case of many investment advisors.
What I’m about to say may sound like a mistake, but I guarantee you it’s true: The President has told the Department of Labor to draw up new rules that will make retirement financial advisors put the interests of their clients ahead of their own financial gain. If you thought that’s that way it is now with all investment advisors, you would be wrong.
Currently if you go to financial advisors seeking help investing for your future retirement, many are in a position to steer you toward investments that give you a poor return on your money but reward the advisor with huge sales commissions. While many other professionals have a fiduciary responsibility to their clients, sadly these financial advisors do not. At least not so far.
There’s one more thing I need to point out in this situation: As a client, you have no clue what kind of commission your advisor is receiving on the different investment products he is offering. It’s invisible to you.
