I'm curious, how many here who are highly critical of financial advisors have actually used a financial advisor? If not, where did you form your negative opinion?

As mentioned, I'm most definitely not ignoring the opinions here, but then talking to a director of our company who has had a real money portfolio with this particular advisor through the 2009 crash carries a lot of weight.

I spoke with our director again and asked him straight out and he does not have any investments in Ameriprise products which seems to be one of the larger issues stated here.

I appreciate the comments and I'm better armed with questions in our next meeting.
