Choosing to work with a financial advisor

Financial advisors2 help develop financial strategies for a number of scenarios based on the unique needs of their clients. Advisor Connection gives employees a good place to start with the session workbook. It’s an ideal way to help them think about their financial needs and identify what information they may need to bring to a complimentary, no obligation consultation. 

Each financial advisor has a unique style and approach and complimentary, no obligation consultations are generally suited to the unique needs of a client. For example, advisors may provide clients with guidance on specific areas or take a big-picture view of a client’s finances, depending on an individual’s needs and goals. 

There are a variety of ways financial advisors typically work with clients including:

  • Financial planning for a systematic, comprehensive approach
  • Retirement income strategies to help clients save enough to live the kind of retirement they desire
  • Financial protection to help clients establish and provide a safety net
  • Investing strategies that focus on building a portfolio in line with a client’s risk tolerance
  • Estate planning to help clients consider how they want to transfer their wealth
