"Financial Planner" is a tricky title.

There are "financial planners" at brokerage companies, such as Schwab, who get a commission based upon how much of the "high-priced" stocks and funds they sell.

Then there are fee-only planners whose income is based solely on a flat fee.

Never trust a salesman to look out for your welfare when their salary is based upon sales figures!
