Fee Only financial advisors are no-commission advisors who only charge for the advice they give. They do not earn commission by selling any Financial Products.
Fee Only advisors help to reduce the conflicts of interest inherent in how they get paid and what they recommend.
Fee only planners primarily focus on providing comprehensive financial solutions. Their fees include charging on a percentage of
assets under management, flat fee or hourly free basis.
The Fee Based advisors are different from traditional advisor on method of compensation. A fee based financial advisor are those who receive fees paid by you,
and commissions paid to them by a brokerage firm, mutual fund company, insurance company, or investment partnership. Unlike traditional financial advisors who receive a
commission from mutual fund and insurance companies for placing their client's money into their respective products, fee-based advisors earn fees from advice and
they make commissions on some of the products they sell. Thus advisors interests are considered to be more in line with those of their client's.

Understanding Your Advisor's Credentials
Finding a financial professional can be a daunting task. There are literally thousands of people who
work with portfolios and retirement accounts in the United States, and choosing the right one for you
can seem impossible. How do you choose a needle from a seemingly endless stack of needles? Financial
professionals understand this problem, and do everything that they can to differentiate themselves from
their competitors. Financial advisors have different educational backgrounds, experiences, and work with
different companies - all of which leave you with a host of variables with little solid ground to judge
This is why special designations were created. They level the playing field, allowing investors to see which advisors have gone that extra step
to make themselves the most qualified professionals. Designations are often earned through required coursework and examinations that test an advisor's knowledge
in various specialized areas. Some designations are designed specifically for advisors who work with retirees, while other designations show specialization in
insurance or business. No two designations are exactly alike, and some are more reknowned than others.
