How many of you use a Financial advisor for investment and tax related stuff?
Any advise of pros and cons of taking their advice?
1. depends on how complicated your stuff is. with my tiny salary, my stuff is straight-forward and I handle it myself.
2. you have to take their advice with a grain of salt. for the most part, they probably do know more than you do, but how do you know that they're right? Remember, if these guys were infallible, they'd be rich and wouldn't need to both working for the likes of you.
3. i think at this point, most agree: the most important aspect of your investment portfolio is your allocations - not the specific funds, but the percentage of your funds in the various types of funds - low cap, mid cap, international, muni bonds, etc.
