3ethos CEO Don Trone was quoted at The New York Times on aspects investors should seek out in a financial advisor.
In addition to preparing an investment policy statement outlining your financial goals and risk tolerance, a worthy adviser must have the ability to listen, Mr. Trone said.
“They should adopt a consultative approach,” he said. “They should sit down and listen to you and write on a legal pad your goals and objectives. I like the 70/30 rule. You should do at least 70 percent of the talking and not vice versa.”
