Inherent in any investment is the potential for loss as well as the potential for gain.

Guidelines for Working with an Investment Advisor

  • Do not give the manager access to your funds. Assets should stay in an account in your name.
  • Always ask how the manager is compensated.
  • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true. The greater the potential return, the greater the risk.
  • Read the paperwork.
  • If you don’t understand the manager’s philosophy or investing approach, don’t invest.
  • Assume nothing. Let the adviser earn your trust. At the very least, make certain you receive quarterly statements directly from the brokerage firm, custodian or fund family.
