John Tesh, the radio show host (The John Tesh Radio Show) who advises listeners on many different
topics, says that EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A FINANCIAL ADVISER. A close cooperation between consumers and their financial
advisers can make consumers’ lives much more comfortable.
Planning for the future is essential; that “first
step” is the hardest one to make. We prefer our clients control their money and they not break the link and hand it
over to their adviser to control. Certain “blind trusts” might require such a break between a person and their
money. For instance, elected officials are often required to keep their investments in “blind trusts.”

After the mortgage/credit meltdown, the dissolution of several world known investment houses, the elimination of popular
banking names, it all is a result of excess. It is the same as a cold winter. After the snow melts and the ice thaws, flowers
will once again bloom.
A lot of this “excess-enthusiasm” has come from fraud. Until it is detected,
fraud is a masked character. How do you detect it before it hurts? Be ever vigilant; and always remember that if something
acts too good to be true-it probably is! Visit the website below and find more information on fraud detection. Let us save
investing for true investors!
