Before we venture into how to find whether you have hired the right financial adviser or not let us begin with answering few questions to ourselves. Do your financial adviser attorney gets confused when you ask him the difference between capital gain tax and income tax? When you first met the securities attorney did he show sufficient interest in knowing all aspects of your financial portfolio or he was too busing selling his one product for all? What will be his the consequence if you wish to pay your securities law firm on hourly basis like your other attorney and implement the advice received their on your own?

When you sit down to answer the above questions and wondering whether you have hired the right person or not, use three important tips given below to reach a satisfactory conclusion.

  1. General Knowledge! According to Chicago securities dispute lawyers expecting your financial adviser to know about tax implication on selling a particular investment is not at all unreasonable or wrong. It is part of their job and they should be familiar with such things. But unfortunately many financial professionals who use the word adviser on their business cards are not familiar with things beyond the requirements of their company. They believe ignorance is a bliss and they should know things which are or can be required for the company they are working for. Good financial advisor lawyers should know their subject of expertise in details and should be able to help the client in any way possible.
  2. Compensation! Compensation offered to the financial advisor is for the advice offered by him or it is for the product he sold to the client. According to a securities regulatory lawyer, if a particular financial adviser is selling life insurance but have zero knowledge about taxation, banking, equities and other kind of financial investments, then he or she shall be called insurance agent rather than an adviser and should be compensated accordingly. Compensation of the financial adviser depends on the kind of service and knowledge possessed by him.
  3. Portfolio construction! A good financial adviser attorney will always help you in building strong portfolio for yourself and for the company as well. He will ask you questions regarding various fields such as taxation, banking, insurance and investment. If he observes you are weaker in even one of the field then he makes it a point to offer help even if his company do not specialise in that area. He will also give valuable inputs regarding risk management, stop loss and savings of the client.
