You say a commissioned based planner has an objective to sell!
FYI, EVERY planner has an objective to sell!
Actually, anyone who relies on clients for a living has an objective to sell...
accountants, lawyers, doctors, architects, etc.
Lets see how far you want to take this, I visit my dentist twice a year for checkups. If I go and he finds a cavity, I have to go back (a third time) and he makes more money. Now, is he doing this just to make more money?
I say he is doing whats right.
So if a FP is doing what's right, what's the problem?
The bias issue is B.S.
Money etc. IS biased. Your reasoning as to why new funds every month sounds good, but that IS NOT whats going on with these magazines.
Again, you and cfodad show such a negative bias against FPs.
