When it’s for the sake of your business- take your time and do your due diligence to ensure you’re getting the value you deserve from your advisor. For an essential guide you need to discuss the following points with your chosen consultant receives direct response from them. If your consultant or advisor can’t answer these questions or gives you an indirect response, you may want to consider getting a second opinion on your portfolio:

- Transparency in fee: Take time to pick the right consultant and when it comes to explaining their fee structure so clients should fully understand how they are paid.
- Experience: What licenses, credentials, or certifications do you have? Ask them their experience and then proceed.
- Proactive communication: How frequently are you communicating with your clients and their queries regarding nay matter? Your consultant should focus on delivering proactive and transparent communications to the client along with insightful statistics and information as well.
- Access to information and personalized service: Ask your consultant about the top holdings of the strategies and proactively educate on your each strategy’s objective. He/she should be actively involved in all decisions pertaining to your financial future and should serves as your main point of contact for any questions you have.
