When to Meet with an Investment Advisor

by Hostetler, Michael

While you may not need your investment advisor on speed dial anymore, there are certainly times when their expertise is needed.

When you change jobs

Although a new employer may offer a 401(k) rollover, that may not always be to your best advantage. An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or other investment vehicles may be better suited for your investment strategy. An investment advisor can help you decide what is the best plan to help you achieve your goals.

When you marry or divorce

When household income changes, it is a good idea to review your financial plan and decide if it aligns with your changing needs and goals.

When you have children

Children require you to plan ahead. College savings, wills, and trusts are just a few financial strategies parents need to consider.

When you reach your financial milestones

Paying off your house, becoming an empty nester, receiving an inheritance, and other life events can alter your financial situation. This may require more sophisticated and creative financial planning tools such as professional asset management and tax-advantaged investments.

When you start a business

Business retirement and succession planning are necessities for today's business owners. A professional who understands your business' financial needs and demands, as well as your budget and long-term plan, can best help you devise a strategy to help you achieve it.

When you near retirement

This may be the most important time to talk with an investment advisor. Someone in or nearing retirement may need to adjust his/her portfolio to reflect his/her new lifestyle.
