"Be aware that American Express is a major player in financial services. They are former owners of several brokerage and insurance houses. I have never observed them do anything for nothing. Expect them to make a flowery salespitch for either management fees (annual % of managed assets) or load mutual funds.

Fools believe the best financial planners are the ones who work on a for fee basis (straight $/hr) without representing any specific products. "

AE is a natiowide. Are there fee basis FP groups that are nationwide? Is there a place on the web where I can check them out.
