Clients value your ability to explain how their investments impact their financial goals. You are a coach, a hand holder, a truth teller, and realist. Helping a client realize their financial dreams goes far beyond dollars and cents and a sound investment philosophy. It requires trust, honesty, and communication much like all relationships. But building relationships takes time and trust can be hard to come by. Adding investment education into your financial planning process is one of the easiest ways to build trust and rapport with your clients.
