Why Quality Control’s Essential to the Financial Expert
One of the many questions a prospective client would ask of any financial expert in the field is this: have you had any complaints? Scary question. But a good customer will pose that inquiry with gusto, determining if said financial advisor truly does hold his/her own in the industry, perhaps with minimal issues.
Why is this important? Wouldn’t you want to know whether or not the person you’re consulting with for your finances can handle the job based on past professional history? I would. You wouldn’t hire a lawyer who lost the last five cases due to being asleep at the desk, would you?
The Reputation of the Financial Expert
Even more so, the responsibility every financial expert or advisor has is prestigious. That person’s in charge of managing the money belonging to someone else. That’s huge. So naturally you want to inquire about whether or not past or current clients have great things to say about that financial expert.
You can, in fact, check the credentials on your own via the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority website — FINRA, for short. There you may find — or the lack thereof — any evidence of complaints filed, or penalties that were levied due to negligence, or error, on the part of the advisor in question.
Finding any such evidence would certainly sway your decision on going with that particular financial expert, simply because you don’t trust the quality of work according to past experiences. It makes sense — after all, if you were seeking employment, and you had a spotty work background, you’d do everything in your power to minimize that in the face of a hiring manager.
