Here's the deal. Be prepared to buy a lot of American Express or IDS products. IDS is a proprietary company. There is push to have them sell company related investments. Also, IDS is a always hiring firm. HOw can they do this? People are always leaving the firm because they can't hack it. YOur friend may be a great financial advisor, but if he can't get clients (not just friends) but other people to buy, he is going to get washed out of the business and someone else at the firm will take over your account. Just keep it in mind. g
