Frequently Asked Questions
What Makes a Financial Advisor Worth the Cost?
Financial advisors can provide help in navigating the complex world of modern investing.
A recent Vanguard study found that, on average, a hypothetical $500K investment would grow to over $3.4 million under the care of an advisor over 25 years, whereas the expected value from self-management would be $1.69 million, or 50% less. In other words, an advisor-managed portfolio would average 8% annualized growth over a 25-year period, compared to 5% from a self-managed portfolio.
