If this 'FA'is an 'advisor', then the over-friendly guy at the local Ford auto dealership is my 'transportation consultant'. This person you refer to is, by any other name, a salesman. If you don't see or understand this, then you are destined to transfer much (or even most) of your future investment earnings to him.
