In John 10:12, Jesus tells the story of the shepherd and the hired hand. The hired hand cares nothing for the sheep, but the shepherd is successful because he cares for the sheep. You know people who are hired hands, they don't care about their employees or their customers, and you know people who are shepherds. Shepherds and hired hands also exist in the financial industry. This week's guest, Doug Amis, CFP and author, joins Hans and Robby to discuss what to look out for when trying to select a financial advisor.  

CFP’s, who have to be fiduciaries, are required to put their customers best interest first. In the parable, a fiduciary would be the shepard. CFPs are not the only fiduciaries though, CPAs, lawyers, and doctors all have to act as fiduciaries.    

Doug talks about his grandfather, whose financial statements he reviewed. He realized that many of his holdings were not competitive, and he was paying high fees. Doug made sure to go through and fix this as the person his grandfather was working with was not a fiduciary. Robby had a very similar situation with his father right before he passed, when an agent tried to sell him stocks on his deathbed.  

Doug says that you need to ask for the fees the advisor or agent charges. Also ask if they are working as a fiduciary. These are very basic questions that advisors should be able and willing to answer.  

If an advisor does not have to follow a fiduciary standard, they must follow suitability standards, which means the product is suitable for the client. It does not have to be the best policy in any way. Advisors only have to ask 9 questions according to FINRA to make sure a product is suitable.  

Lastly, Hans, Robby, and Doug talk about annuities, and how important it is to find a fiduciary when you are searching for this product.

Now let's get started with finishing well. She is this actually for people as well. So as Jesus said person I am a good shepherd lays down his life for she is a higher office is not on the season is chiefly reasonable status and status because these are the cares nothing for the sheep.

I know me so about information know if you just think about where you were young people there simply don't care about their fellow employees and customers is people as well. I guess it's the same is true financial and insurance insurance and they say as a result of finishing well. We have guests against CFP more about what were you sure you really need for work together helping people throughout business Journal advisors is also my workbook when you return the unit as well. That is actually a co-author of regular insurance actually played certain roles are discussed saying that I say separating me from my old experience. My job is that now I'm required in certified wasn't really very much an issue, as is required to go through customer's best interests first parable in your describing is not happiness. Same ownership of that or the importance she is not good shepherd should greatly show that really is a kindness just points to let us be sure he doesn't let you because you have not advised you have some absolutely represent statements, their major national wire processes down mutual funds and I noticed that the couplings are not very competitive saying that when we got the sex investments to clients and products that there's a difference in fees and unfortunately those offer my grandfather is 91-year-old was a high C. Ongoing. Instead of going to a conference and it was a little exhausted and bought for seven dollars and $1500 a year every year until you sell a position that is so yeah immediately as his grandson is sharing is grandson is we need to maximize nonferrous well as is state is obviously the same situation. I want to know all too well with my followers who was also unbelievable that I was literally hours and that I was talking that we actually were doing a radio show. The show McCarley try to find out if there was anybody there, not even willing to go find Allison here we were, the oxidation I cycle back but it is time the lady was helpful would be an understatement is not always involve talking because he's exam I delete I don't believe me so I found this on the phone with elastic terms of the state. Perhaps she literally, cells in stock their traits of beneficiary became real obvious issues are ones upon the staff. She bailed all my brothers and sister she would help them when their IRAs were going transfer time to talk to you.

I got more clients elects her statement brothers and sisters. She really cared about my battle problem here is taken care of and commissions because you just about no disbursement care anymore about my father's family is his counselor from well so is it versus initial business insurance business.

They are surprised about the walking sandbank reluctance institution contrast. I encourage all of my clients, and everyone is asked to share in one of these differences series are required to disclose how their compensation people are wary of asking how salesperson were there persons working yesterday is absolutely important comes to making your own any fee that is going to the agent is your one way or encourage my students are asked are you working and bind it all in a certified financial plan that your engagement is going to be required to work as a teacher. So when you with your suggestion is you need us. Actually I think is something that shouldn't be as astounding as you know, what were you were required to disclose that they were also required to disclose any conflicts of interest being compensated on a recommendation to be able to show that didn't create the recommendation is caused conflict of interest is cosmetic conflict of interest that enter into somebody's house that it often. We have these insurance trips and if we start recommending by this particular church is best, but start recommending it because we captured as a constant and the space closed. We shouldn't we see that on our system so we deal is we don't let anything that any insurance company is paying us back our recommendations find intelligible about their honest office, I just don't because I want them making your recommendations as customers and tell them all out.

Use leverage is price comparison user best rating of the insurance company stability. We use our own internal experience of our easier business with.

Whether the issue policies quickly and efficiently with our customers are satisfied all that goes into a recommendation waiting on price is one get them in the best possible price. Never does our compensation still disclosed lesson is that when you're working just right required to disclose their compensation, centers asking about nine questions in order to show their where they did their job, but less suitable very very much in the sense that is a 5% fee or new percent of any suitable you know what I enhance himself as a server is standard so I went to Sarah's website for national industries, regulatory body, and they required their agents or recruiters asked. Asian about other investments your network your marginal tax bracket your objectives.

How many years you've been investing years you'd like to invest these funds. How soon you might need them and how much you're willing to lose what we call risk is nine questions were they right 9239 questions they've done their duty as all lesser part suitable shows up reasonable. Now we said yesterday she raped me. My more about media is that our recommendation is in your best interest and that is not ranked by compensation leaders meeting disclose what compensation we receive from.

Contact time the Cardinal guide.com that's Cardinal guide.com division is the due date, CFP still extremely informative talk a little bit about Jesus case Billy D understanding of who he was a good shepherd with this is also some impractical there. When you look at people getting help from the development of a hired hand, Mr. Ron did she get actresses the person that sent it is a good character sheet so you know how that I understand that the good news is consequently often find out more fiduciaries in this world and just is not just limited the CPA Dr. there is not unexpected given it often times it's not the best thing I recommend this member of breaking response to the case and my experience I seen some situations where software is worked for decades and horses working together with the clients professionals are CPAs and lawyers. We are interviewing a cyber comparing hospice clients and planned she had incidences of a 4X cost thousands of dollars.

As a veteran, she's able to apply for special program care. She says she hired CPA's. A lawyer is easier asked that investigation surprises and we talked for broker, stay in the mind being understatement and says that he would not bunch.

You would not go you were dancing type of idea what he was doing wasn't investing in the process of United Way CPA lawyer processes. These we will show the client that really investing in programs doing my mother this but every single month that he was getting deducted service to be provided so as I extend the above for the assisted living showing exactly it was destined to be a zero account balances a couple years but I don't drink during his financial planning as to initiate, we recommended some things that work available army was using insurance products, which they know is Sherry. I look at the whole universe of things. Despite times out this particular situation that the was the best things sometimes check out earlier. This is especially the baby year and 1/2 ago. While there, zero, so they would be medicated so you know are EEO that your friend Is going to facility where he was persistent on the people that probably reason I mean is what it is you got something out for you versus just missing the stuff that happens when you're under Medicaid is for people in his room when he signed it even more. Think about eating, you know, this is just getting on the phone. I eventually is I pay for cell phone so I can talk to them because otherwise there is only one best bet is the least thing that we can provide this plan is expected to initiate choice and to compare and contrast not just sell the one telling us the best thing since sliced is really good. Talk to some as you talk about fiduciary really isn't what they can be good or bad.

It's really a question of who cell is often find is Asian or somebody that has limited knowledge only held her suitability is not fiduciaries there make a recommendation that you take all your money club and that annuity that can be back in the regressions and that he used honors now is there recommending the wrong type of event to display immediate annuity remember exactly why is that I do know that you maximum monthly outflow that you get the money as long as you live. No matter what happens.

This energy is a lot like in fact, my insurance company, based on the needs of your financial only in the work since I have heard lawyer assets and said that's unacceptable. It will not help our nation.

The lawyer sure sure is all kinds of types of annuities within the company. They offer all types of different versions of what we have 50 companies that sell for lease run, everything urges a plain-vanilla annuity design and not responsive deferred annuities that guarantees future amount. You know the exact value today is more risky and ease things like variable and agrees that are backed by mutual funds doesn't go up and down based on the market every single day. We also hear Jesus as their but we do all of his issues. Rarely do we take all some of club must sign a financial plan. Some part with people need. Stage can we do that all of today's tracks for using annuity is market risk mitigation or task items that are not often discussed in detail in working some things just a hired hand and acting as if initiate this so thanks I need a life is also other annuities after multiyear guarantee designed a stated interest rate that is very important. See black and white and know exactly what you earn every year.

The next 357 so there's ways that we can go ensure your mind to make sure that your subject to changes in stock market, bond market, just like with what was announced today that changing were fishing when I was prompted by Col. Drive.com. They have a lot which has a handy chart on page 71 is all these different types of vehicles in the risk factor is inflation risk. All these things are really really comfortable.

This email contract is just what website you can also remain anonymous. My Facebook. In this chart, which is extremely helpful, which is always different investment products and the risk versus different races on page 71. You know when there isn't so you know I meant to try to dine this down for Robbie's is that if a person said in an stuff if I have always included vanilla and say $50,000 pay me back some and is guaranteed like I was no is the case this lady that while she needs at weekly night.

We have something that is so, what were the advantage of each immediate goes deferred as I hear. My friend consult with contract and debate over interest over time. So yeah, I need from this simple standpoint of deferred annuities like bait exactly such a contract. That's gonna be able to be protected from downside loss for every unit you delay trauma earn additional interest credits were inside contract is guaranteed a there is no a built-in stairstep of income for every year very soon as your pensions the basics and sending back on government guarantee Corporation is backed by insurance, as I recommend things like their financial ratings initiate you my very strong well-capitalized annuity would be able to go and grow invested in more risky investments like stocks or how you earn a higher rate of interest is paid doesn't have the same protection or risk is really the shepherd to make sure that there is a wash U, just by strata look at that and generally people by the variable annuity by reason of verses.
