When looking for a Financial Advisor check for signs of questionable practices, that can hinder your investments, and thus potentially hinder your retirement lifestyle. 
Such as:
  • High up-front commissions
  • Frequent trading
  • Investments not suitable for your goals
  • Locking your money into proprietary investments that keep you at that firm
  • Not explaining how the broker or advisor is paid
  • Never write a check payable to the order of the Advisor 

Look for clarity and simplicity in recommendations

Work with someone who is trustworthy and takes the time to understand your needs, goals and challenges.
