Have you ever been in a meeting with a financial advisor or agent and been pitched a product or felt pressured to sign the papers before you even understood what the plan was?
In Chapter 2 of Ed’s book, “Wealth Mismanagement,” I discovered that in the financial services industry, some firms prioritize creating sound portfolios by measuring risk and educating their client instead of simply focusing on making sales and sounding smart. This realization occurred during my time at a larger-scale firm.
