S3E03: 4 Ways Financial Advisers Get Compensated – The Pros and Cons

Jin Lee

Until today, Providend remains the only fee-only wealth advisory firm in Southeast Asia, a model inspired by the U.S. and Australia – why is that so? For the average person seeking trustworthy wealth advice that is client-centric, should they exclusively consider fee-only wealth advisers? Also, what are the differences between fee-only and fee-based advisers?

In this week’s Money Wisdom episode, our CEO, Chris, and our Co-Host, Jin, discuss this controversial topic of the various compensation methods in the financial advisory world and the pros and cons of each. After listening to this podcast, we hope you will gain clarity on how to best evaluate the type of financial adviser that is most suitable for your needs.
