Why is financial advisor in quotes? Maybe because calling this person a financial advisor is a bit like calling a used car salesman a "transportation advisor."

That was me.

And you basically hit it on the head. While I'm sure there are lots of good financial advisors out there, there are also a lot of insurance salesman and stockbrokers who take on the title "financial advisor" just to help them sell their wares. You can't tell the difference between the two just by reading their titles.
