Even the Best Investors Need This

Mar 31, 2010

I don't care if you pick stocks better than Warren Buffett. To achieve all of your dreams, there's one thing you have to have -- and to get it, you really need to consider talking to a professional.

Unfortunately, you can't assume that just any financial professional will fit the bill. CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER[™ professional]s, on the other hand, are governed by a code of ethics that assures you that they're on your side. More importantly, they don't just know about investing -- they'll also guide you on everything from taxes and estate planning to budgeting and buying the right insurance.
