What Do I Need To Tell An Investment Advisor?

Next » « Previous


Any good investment advisor will ask about your financial situation and your goals. She or he may also ask about your personal life.

It is advisable to also disclose your health condition to your advisor. You likely need more safety in your investments than the average person of your age and economic situation. You may also have an unexpected need for extra cash if your expenses increase or your income decreases.

If the state of your condition means you have a shortened life expectancy, and you have an idea what that could be, let the advisor know. Keep in mind that life expectancies are only statistical and do not predict the longevity of any particular individual.
