Asking the Right Questions

From choosing your financial advisor to picking your attorney, CPA, and insurance professional, assembling your team of advisors can feel overwhelming. You know it’s important to ask the right questions, but where do you even start? What questions should you ask? What qualifications and attributes should you look for?

Here are a few of the questions that Kingdom Advisors recommends you ask when interviewing financial and investment advisors:

  • Do you do comprehensive financial planning?
  • Do you work for an insurance company, investment company, or a broker-dealer that manufactures insurance or investment products?
  • Are you compensated by fees, commissions, or both?
  • What is your process and how many times will we meet?
  • How many clients do you have?
  • Do you think that it is good to pay off my house by retirement?
  • What professional certifications do you hold?
  • What is your investment philosophy?
  • Once you have invested client assets, how do you monitor investment performance?
  • How do you integrate a biblical worldview into your investment philosophy?
  • What types of investments do you use? Load or no-load mutual funds, ETFs, Stocks, Bonds, and Annuities?
  • How and how often do you communicate with your clients?
