Your financial advisor should be someone you can trust and who has your best interests at heart. If you're not sure how to find this person, there are some things you can do:
First, look for someone who has a fiduciary duty to advise you in your best interest—that means they have to act in your best interest even if it goes against their own interests.
Next, make sure they have relevant experience and expertise in the areas where they provide advice—for example, if you're looking for tax advice, make sure the person has experience with taxes!
Finally, make sure they'll be available when you need them—if something happens at 3 pm on a Tuesday afternoon and you need help immediately, do they have an office staffed 24/7?
