Fee-only vs. Fee-based financial planning
If you're looking for trustworthy, objective financial advice, you can't ignore the question of how an advisor is compensated. A fee-based financial advisor may be compensated by a combination of fees and commissions for the services they provide and the products they sell. This can potentially be the worst of all scenarios. The key point to remember is that the reason the phrase "fee-based" is used, is because they cannot represent themselves as "fee-ONLY." Because the emphasis is often on sales, a conflict of interest can and frequently does arise. On the other hand, an independent, 100% fee-only financial advisor is paid only from clients for the services they provide, not the products they recommend and sell. They never accept compensation from a 3rd party. This allows a fee-only financial advisor to provide an objective financial plan that best fits a client's needs without conflicting financial incentives slanting any advice.
