    Answering Your Requests for a Recommended Financial Advisor

    Finally! A firm that is skeptical of the stock market
    by Adam Taggart

One of the most frequent and urgently-voiced questions we receive from our readers is: “Can you recommend a financial advisor, ideally one aligned with the “Three Es” outlook of the Crash Course?”

And with the turbulence in the market over the past year — most notably the huge price swings in the stock market and precious metals in the last two months alone — we’re seeing a notable increase in demand for these investment manager referrals.

Which is why we spent the better part of this year performing due diligence on a number of advisors to find a firm we felt comfortable endorsing. I’m happy to report that we’ve finally selected one.

How We Chose a Financial Advisor

Key criteria in our search were:

  • investment strategy
  • experience
  • quality of customer service
  • trust

Trust Yourself When Choosing a Financial Advisor

Here’s how we announced the endorsement in a post to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers:

Of course, the dirty little secret out there is that you can control risks to a far greater extent than is commonly admitted. All you have to do is not buy in to the commonly-held beliefs of those around you who are being marketed to by a very savvy, self-interested crowd of hucksters.

And find a good, independent financial advisor that actually cares about you and your wealth. If you are interested, I happen to know a few. In the interest of full disclosure, these happen to be the same folks that manage money for several of my closest family members and with whom this operation has recently entered into a financial arrangement where funds are received for sending them referrals that become invested clients.

The thrust of the quoted article above was to “trust yourself,” a core theme on this site and one that we absolutely advocate. But we understand that for many people, including Chris Martenson and me, an important part of trusting ourselves involves knowing when to recruit outside expertise.

    Nice post. 

    Good financial advisers are hard to find. I think the first question you should make when meeting one is: WHERE DO YOU INVEST YOUR OWN MONEY ? Depending on his or her answer, you will know if you got yourself a good or bad adviser.
