All advisors say they are trustworthy financial experts. Unfortunately, this is not true 75% of the time. Advisors make this claim to reduce your sales resistance and convince you to buy what they are selling.
We launched Paladin in 2003 to provide the information you need to select top quality financial advisors in your community. No more selecting advisors based on sales pitches and undocumented sales claims.
We added a Registry of vetted, 5 Star rated advisors in 2004 for investors who may not know any high quality advisors.
We are experts on financial advisors and firms. Our expertise helps you make the right decisions.
You have a lot of choices when you select a financial advisor. The question is do you select the advisor:

- From a brand name firm that advertises on TV?
- Who works at your local bank?
