If you are in search of a financial planner and have found my website, you can rest assured that you are on the right track. But don’t take my word for it. Writers at two of the nation’s most respected periodicals would agree.
In its article How to Find a Financial Planner, The New York Times recommends that its readers research Fee-Only financial planners at www.napfa.org and www.garrettplanning.com. The Wall Street Journal points you to the same organizations in its article, How to Choose a Financial Planner.
Why would both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal recommend that you work with a Fee-Only financial planner? It’s quite simple, really. Fee-Only planners take on a fiduciary responsibility to act in your best interest and do not try to sell you anything other than their professional advice.
