(Video) Question #6: Do you have any incentive to recommend one option over another?

July 16, 2020

This is one of our favorite questions.   This question, if answered appropriately, will ensure that your advisor is acting in your best interest and not their own, or their company's.    It is more than fair to ask this.   Many of the companies that you may be interviewing will offer their advisors extra 401k matches, stock options, bonuses, a higher commission, health insurance, benefits, company trips and more if the advisor uses certain types of accounts for you.   You want to make sure that the investment that you are making is based on a true recommendation and not based on what their company wants them to use.    If you would like more information on this, feel free to send me a message and I would be more than happy to tell you if you are in one of those accounts... this does not mean you have to become a client.  I am just making sure the right things are done for you!
