What Does A Financial Advisor Do?

Before anything else, let us first define what a financial advisor is. A financial advisor is basically your planning partner in all your financial concerns.

For instance, if you are planning to send your kid to a private university 10 years from now, or maybe you want to retire after 30 years- that’s possible. However, if you plan to achieve it on your own, it may be hard to accomplish. That’s when you’ll need the help of a skilled financial advisor or financial institution to make these goals become reality.

You and your financial planner will then discuss not only your goals but your current financial status too. They will educate you and give you the information you need to make smarter decisions regarding your finances.

› How much money should you save in a span of time?
› What accounts do you need?
› What are the types of insurance you should get (life insurance, health insurance, etc.)?
› What about estate planning?

These are some of the financial topics that will be covered once you get to talk to your financial advisor. Yes, they are in some way an educator too. They will help you to better understand your current finances and evaluate your financial reporting to guide you in properly planning for your future goals.

What Are The
 Types Of Financial Advisors?
 

Similar to other professions, there are also different types of financial advisors that you can cater to your various needs. And they also vary based on the range of services they offer.

So here are the seven types of financial advisors, what they do and the things you need to know before getting one:

Certified Financial Planners

When you say Certified Financial Planner, it means they have already undergone training and have enough experience to pass the CFP certification exam. They offer services that don’t require regulation. And this includes guidance on how to pay down a debt, devising a plan for your retirement or creating a realistic budget.

Broker-Dealers and Brokers

A broker-dealer can be an individual or firm that buys and sells securities such as mutual funds, bonds and stocks. These people can buy and sell on behalf of their clients. However, the financial products that they can sell are limited and will depend on their license. So if ever you decide to work with one, you should check their licenses and verify their registration on FINRA.

Investment Advisors

Investment advisors can be an individual or a company who is hired to provide investment advice to their clients. They are also allowed to manage their client’s assets directly. But, similar to broker-dealers, you should also verify their registration on the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) before getting their services.

Financial Consultant

This is another type of financial advisor whose main responsibility is conducting an audit on your financial situation and helping you devise a plan to reach your future goals. Depending on their background, training and certification level, these individuals will be able to provide assistance in your specific needs such as insurance and tax preparation.

Financial Coach

They are often tagged as the most beginner-friendly financial advisors. These people usually focus on helping you understand the basics of financial literacy. This includes how to save more money or how you can reduce spending. These financial coaches can help their clients to build their wealth so that an investment advisor may be able to help them in the future.

Investment, Portfolio & Wealth Managers

The name says it all. Whatever their job title says- wealth manager, asset manager, portfolio manager, or investment manager, they do exactly just that. They are the ones responsible for managing their client’s portfolios. It usually covers creating short or long-term strategies for acquiring or disposing of their client’s portfolio holdings.

Robo-advisor

A robo-advisor refers to an automated investment management service. They utilize computer algorithms to create and manage an investment portfolio based on their client’s goals. They have little to no human supervision.

How To Choose The Right Financial Advisor?

Now that we’ve discussed what does a financial advisor do and what are its common types, you might be asking: so how do I choose the right financial advisor or financial services for me?

We’re glad you’ve asked! And the answer is- it depends on your budget, needs and goals.

› How much are you willing to spend to pay for an advisor?
› What are your current financial needs and situation?
› What do you want to achieve with the help of an advisor?

Whatever type you end up choosing, it’s imperative to check the individual or the company’s background first before entrusting them with your finances. It will be better to choose financial institutions that have years of proven experience in this field.

LYFE Accounting is just that. Our financial advisory services have been helping individuals with their financial management for years now. Read on to learn more about our financial services.

Atlanta Financial Advisory Services

Our investment advisors will help you understand and maximize your:

Income

Whether you are a regular employee with a monthly paycheck, or an entrepreneur running his own business, the question remains. Are you bringing in enough income to cover your specific needs and meet your goals?

Expenses

Some people say that money is meant to be spent. While that may be right, you still have to be smart in spending your hard-earned money. So where are you spending it and is it the best use of your money?

Investments

Saving is not always the best way to ensure you have money. Yes it is good for keeping what you already have, but what about generating more dollars without having to literally work for it? Is your money working for you while you sleep?

Company Benefits

Are you a regular employee at your company? As a dedicated employee, working for a company has more perks aside from your paycheck. Do you have an efficient company benefits plan to achieve your goals?

Taxes

Paying your taxes regularly is a part of responsible adulthood. Although there’s a clear process on how to file your taxes, you still need to keep an eye out on how much you are paying. Are you spending more on taxes than you have to?

Retirement

Probably one of the best achievements in life is getting to enjoy the fruits of your years of labor when you retire. But the question is, now that you’re still young, have you ever considered retirement planning? Will you have enough money to retire?
