We believe all investors, who rely on financial advisors, have two goals. They want to:
- Select competent, ethical professionals to help them achieve financial goals
- Avoid low quality advisors who use deceptive sales tactics
Achieving these goals are not easy. That's because low quality advisors know how to sound like top quality advisors. There is no regulation that prevents this shady practice. In fact, it is your responsibiity to determine who is telling the truth.
Low quality advisors use this tactic because they know:
- You have no record of what they say
- There is no easy way to check the accuracy of their claims
- They have nothing to lose. They cannot win if they tell you the truth
