Is there any particular reason you want to go with a fee-based financial advisor versus an hourly paid advisor? I consulted both several years ago, and I decided, that if I wish to hire one, I would hire the hourly-fee based advisor.

I can pay him for just his advice. My question is should I put some assets under his management and potentially earn higher returns with lower volatility.

What helped you firm up your decision on a per hour advisor?
