Course Description

A financial advisor should be a trusted individual who has complete transparency and who looks out for their client's best interests at all times. That said, many in this field are known for misrepresenting their credentials, using phony titles, or misstating facts to sell products. There's even a chance they're not licensed, or at best, barely qualified to give accurate advice. There are even some secrets that a financial advisor may not want you to be aware of, which can be costly to your clients in the long-run.

With so much confusing terminology, such as Registered Investment Advisors (or "RIAs"), investment advisors, registered representatives, stockbrokers, and insurance agents, this online CPE webinar aims to teach the difference between all the different types of financial advisors and how they are compensated.

Key topics discussed in this CPE webinar:

  • Different types of financial advisors
  • Methods of compensation of different financial advisors
  • Questions to ask a financial advisor

Recommended for:

CPAs and other professionals involved in Financial Planning for their clients
