Clark Howard is in favor of Fee-Only Financial Planning.
Christian Koch, KAM South, Atlanta, GA Financial Planner / Wealth Advisor agrees with Howard’s assessment of fee-only planners:
“The stakes are so high in investing that you should consider fee-only planners. They’ll give you a fixed price up front for their services, regardless of the product they recommend. You won’t have to worry about conflict of interest.
Their success will depend on your good word of mouth and how well they did by you. To find a good one, go to the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers website, NAPFA.org.”
