My wife and I are seeking a financial advisor and would appreciate suggestions on how to find one. We have checked with friends and neighbors – apparently they don't have advisors.

Our need is somewhat uncommon. Currently we have both the skills and theinterest to manage our affairs. We are looking for support or aid to cover the inevitable time when we either can not or choose not to handle the task. We have no family members to handle this task.

I have found the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors web site ( but don't know if this is a reasonable place to obtain names or not. Our preference would be to avoid brokerage houses and commission based relationships.

If it matters, we have no interest or motivation to leave inheritances and we can live on gross or pretax income equally 4% or less of our investments (IRAs, 401Ks and traditional investment accounts.)
