It also takes knowledge and resources. Your investment advisor should be your professional partner and teammate on your journey to real wealth.
Don’t you need any advisor who cares more about your money than his own compensation?
Your investment advisor must provide you with objective advice and unbiased recommendations. The investments in your portfolio need to be those that fit your overall needs, not based on your advisors commissions and compensation. Your advisor should invest your money as if it was his own.
You need investments that work together to close the gap between you and your financial life goals. You also need to make sure that your investment strategy doesn’t expose you to more risk than you can tolerate.
We are quite sure that over the past decade you have learned that there are some environments that are pretty hostile to your investments. Whether it was the Tech Bubble in the early 2000’s to the Housing Bubble to the Great Recession, not all economic periods are designed to grow your wealth.
Despite this, the vast majority of the financial community practices “Buy and Hold” investing which only works in the rear view. In periods of economic upheaval, you bear the full risk of a market decline and are told to be patient and wait out the storm.
You now understand that this method of investing doesn’t work for real people like you, with real money and real emotions. You require an investment approach that demands preservation of your hard earned assets. Keeping what you have is the key to accumulating wealth when the conditions and opportunities are optimal.
