Yep for advisors keep a keen eye on fees. They’re salesmen.

Also note that you do not have to give any advisor ALL of your money. I’ve been yelled at here before for suggesting this but maybe give them 10% and invest the rest yourself following their advice. In low cost indexes most likely.

If that’s “unfair” they can transition to fee only. Your money your decision. My advisor knows I do this and she is happy to get the 10% which is well into 6 figures…
