How to decide whether to trust an adviser


22 May, 2019

There are two elements to trusting an adviser. The first is a conscious decision: Is the adviser competent? The second is sub-conscious: Does the adviser have my very best interests at heart? Two further questions to consider: Q: Is your adviser benevolent? This comes from your gut. Q: Is your adviser a fiduciary? Ask your adviser. If you gut says ‘no’ and the adviser is not a fiduciary, then you probably need to look elsewhere for advice.
