Financial advisor commissions

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve started a guest writing role with The Investor Education Fund’s public site for investor education. The first series of articles is going to go into some depth about the inner workings of how investment management fees and commissions you pay are split between a financial advisor and his or her firm. This series is not designed to simply chastize advisors, but rather to provide some transparency to how it all works.

“Welcome to The Grid” Part 1 of the series title “Gridlocked” – Looking at the mechanics of financial advisor compensation – the series will go on to explain what conflicts they face, what model is most aligned with you as an investor, and more.

The Masters of Money homepage – Bios on all the writers: Myself, Caroline Cakebread, Rob Carrick, Jonathan Chevreau and Allison Griffiths. All new content posted here.

As a reminder, the best way to keep track of all my writings, links I find interesting, and more, is to follow me on twitter (@preetbanerjee).

Here is the official press release from The Investor Education Fund on CNW.

    I think one good financial advisor is enough to fulfill the need of a client, if your advisor is good and strategic I suppose one is enough.
