Experience Look for a financial adviser with at least four years experience in the field of professional financial advisory. This length of service and exposure in the financial industry should be adequate for your financial planning professional to know how the industry works, established his or her network of contacts and became well-versed in putting the client interest first.

Character Many financial hand books forget to include figure as an important factor in determining the skills and success of a financial advisor, yet this could prove to be the main gauge of all. Observe the individual's company and personal values. Truly does he or she listen to you when you lay down your financial concerns, like the drama that goes with it, if any? Truly does she or he appear impatient, slashes you off and shows up as a smart-Aleck? Say goodbye to the guy or girl instantly to prevent you from future problems.
