In a previous article written for The Business Times, Chris, our CEO, explained the different ways an adviser could be compensated – commission-based, fee-based, or fee-only. However, it is important to note that the different compensation methods alone do not determine if an adviser is the right one for you.
In this week’s Money Wisdom episode, Chris shares the three things you should take note of when choosing the right adviser for yourself and how Providend strives to uphold these in our day-to-day processes.
You can also read Chris’ Business Times article here: Choosing a Wealth Adviser That Will Always Do the Right Thing for You.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for our next episode, where we discuss how an accumulator or a near-retiree should plan for their wealth respectively.
