Required Minimum Account Sizes
Most financial advisors require that new clients have a certain amount of money available for the advisor to invest and manage on behalf of the client. These minimums are often $250,000, $500,000, or even $1,000,000 plus.
Potential For Conflicts Of Interest
Most advisors also receive some type of commission-based compensation, which can create a conflict of interest when having to choose between what’s best for the client and what pays the advisor the most. This type of compensation can be earned in various ways: the sale of a financial product, such as a life insurance policy or variable annuity, or from investment vehicles, such as mutual funds with front-ends loads or internal expenses (called 12B-1 fees) of which the advisor gets a share.
