To locate a Financial Planner that works for you:

  • Consider the person's experience and education, the method by which the planner charges for his or her services, and the amount of the charge.
  • Check references.
  • If you're considering giving a planner control over your money, in addition to checking on the person, ask for proof that he or she is bonded and has errors and omissions insurance.
  • Meet the planner in free introductory meeting. Prepare for the meeting.

Beware any planner who uses high-pressure tactics to sell you a product or to get you to sign an agreement. Also be wary of any planner who promises unusually high returns on your investments.
