Just reading this thread, it would appear that the consensus of the board is that: A). No Financial Advisor is worth the money they charge and B). No Financial Advisor has enough ethics to recommend what's best for their clients regardless of the commission involved.
I don't happen to agree with that consensus. A good Financial Advisor is like any other good investment, difficult to find but worth the effort. Superior Financial Advisors are just as rare as superior investments.
While a lot of posters here appear to be able to make their own good investment decisions, a good Financial Advisor would still probably be worth the extra charge over a discount brokerage.
Just my 2 cents.
