Financial Advisor FAQs
It starts with having a conversation. A financial advisor is only as good as the satisfaction you get in them helping you achieve your goals and your belief that they can. By having a conversation you can determine if your personalities are suited and if you can work with them long term. Get in touch with us and we'll answer your questions.
A financial advisor is a broad term reflecting an individuals ability to help you with money management, insurance or general advice. A financial advisor can also be a financial planner. A financial planner helps you put your financial situation together and plan for specific goals like retirement, kids education and debt reduction.
The cost of advice can vary from one financial consultant to another. You could pay for consultation such as when you request a detailed financial plan. Or you could pay a fee based on the value of the investments that a financial advisor manages for you. BlueAlpha Wealth is a fee-based financial advisor meaning you don't pay us commissions but a fee based on our performance of your investments. In addition, if you require a financial plan we have different amounts depending on your need and complexity.
With the information age and the vast amount of information available to consumers, many are and do manage their own investments and financial planning. It's easier now to buy investments online without speaking to a financial advisor. There are some drawbacks and limitations, however, to DIY. Knowing when to buy a stock is easier than knowing when to sell. You also may not have the time and focus required to manage your affairs as your life gets more complicated. If you want to buy life insurance, you have to go through an advisor to be able to find you the best company and coverage. So it's a trade-off that one has to decide for themselves.
Most of what a financial advisor does is help you organize what you're currently doing as well as pointing out gaps and vulnerabilities to your financial situation. At BlueAlpha Wealth we will never undo any good work you've done up to this point. Our focus is to help you manage and plan so that you fulfill your goals. Whether it's investing smartly or mapping out a plan that takes into account your whole financial situation, we meet you where you are. We may also point out different strategies like alternative strategies and investing than you might be used to at your local bank.
Our main role at Blue Alpha Wealth is investment planning and management. However, this is not in a silo as we help you apply managing your investments to fund particular goals and plans you have for the future. We help you create a one-page financial and investment plan and manage it on your behalf. It's a long term relationship and for individual investors who want to delegate this responsibility as well as working together in partnership. If you have for example an RRSP, TFSA or any other type of investment services you need guidance with, that is what we mostly do.
No, our initial conversation is more introductory and an opportunity for you to know what working with us looks like and who we help. You never pay us directly for any solutions we recommend and implement.
