What Qualities Should You Look for in a Financial Advisor?

An honest and transparent relationship with your financial advisor is crucial, which begins with an advisor who shares your values and is dedicated to working in your best interests. We act as your companion for the journey to living fully.

Selecting the right financial advisor is an important step in cultivating and protecting your legacy. When looking for an advisor, consider:

What type of financial advisor are they?

Fiduciaries are financial advisors that are legally and ethically bound to act in your best interest. Ballast is more than your advisor, we are your partner, and as a fiduciary, we work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure you receive the best guidance.

Are they team-based?

We believe the best work is done through collaboration. A team-based approach allows you to benefit from the experience of an entire team with a shared mission—your financial success.

Are they client-focused?

A quality advisor should take the time to define truly meaningful goals and create a financial plan that suits your lifestyle. Instead of pushing certain products, client-focused financial advisors always have your best interest in mind and strive to help you achieve fulfillment in your financial life… and that’s always the goal at Ballast.

How often do they communicate?

When working with your financial advisor, consistent and responsive communication, such as routine check-ins, is fundamental to establishing trust and peace of mind.

Do they have a passion for what they do?

Our team is comprised of life-long learners who are dedicated to continuous improvement. Not only do they publish weekly educational content, but all advisors on the Ballast team are also CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioners and closely follow the ever-changing financial landscape.
