LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, Aug. 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Harris & Associates, a Registered Investment Advisor, states that the best investment returns are often earned when people hire a professional.
Research results show that working with a financial advisor can give people more confidence about their finances and can result in more money to spend in retirement. So when wondering whether you should hire a professional wealth manager or financial advisor, take a close look at the research.1
Behavioral finance clearly reveals that the hunter-gatherer brain has a natural bias that is not conducive to successful investing.2 People consistently do the wrong thing when left to their own devices. Problem behavior includes Anchoring [think—hanging on to a bad investment, hoping it will get back to the original investment]Herd behavior [think—lemmings who follow each other over a cliff]The Emotional Gap [think—letting your feelings rule over rational investment decisions]and more.
A trusted financial advisor can help people make more rational decisions and avoid self-defeating financial mistakes. Additionally, advisors generally encourage their clients to save more, budget their expenses, and focus on better investments with long-term safety and appreciation.
What about the cost? Good advice can come at a price. Free strategies off the internet or from some canned program can help. But such ideas may not be implemented as expected and can often do more harm than good. Choose a fiduciary advisor who is committed to always acting in the client’s best interest. 2 or 3 interviews, choosing the one that best suits the desired situation, the client’s personality and needs.
A good advisor can be worth every penny.
