When people have some money they want to invest, the first thing that comes to their mind is ‘what should I do with this’. And this question is answered by people who have the expertise to plan for it. These people are financial planners, who take care of your planning worries. Having money is just one thing and a lot is left to increase the value of it. That is why people go to financial planners whenever they want their money planned for. They get information about your situations and many other data before advising you to put your money somewhere. This obviously is a very important part of investment as it determines what the future is going to be like for you. A good financial planner guides you in a way that increases your wealth; a bad one misleads you and facilitates the way to lose all your money.
To lose money because of unavoidable situation is one thing; losing money because of a lousy financial planner is another thing, a very irritating thing in that. That is why we have to know as much as possible about the financial planner we talk to.
It is important to learn the questions that need to be asked to know you planner very well. These questions help us understand the financial planner better. The questions should center around his expertise. A financial planner with good expertise can give us good advice, and the opposite will make us lose our money. So we should first be sure that the person we are talking to qualifies for the job and the best way to do this is by asking him questions. And we should make sure that we ask all these questions prior to telling him our situation. This is because if we tell him our situation first, he will claim to be an expert in that. We should ask questions like ‘what is your typical client like’. You ask this to be sure if the planner has experience in planning for clients like yourself. We should also ask him about the typical income of his clients. This is important since his experience in planning for your income level helps a lot in reaching at a good financial decision. It doesn’t matter what your present job is.
