How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Financial Advisor?
Talking in terms of the compensation package, there are different categories in how financial advisors are paid:
Fee only: In this category, the financial advisors charge you a flat fee or on hourly basis. This is better than advisors who work on commissions from third parties because you pay them only for the services you have availed. They are fiduciaries who put your interest above their own.
Commissions: The financial advisors who work on commission basis often advertise themselves as free, but earn commissions from third parties on the basis of target completion. You must take caution before hiring such a type because they are wired to complete only their targets irrespective of the client's needs.
Percentage of Assets: This is another category where the financial advisors charge you on a percentage basis of your total assets. The percentage can range from 0.25 to 1%.
As sourced from Indeed (April 2021), the common salary for a financial advisor in the US is $70,603 yearly on average. Their salary range starts from 14,000$ to 191,000$ per year depending on their experience.
