Difference between Fee-Only Financial Planners and Fee-Based Financial Planners
Which expert should you hire?
A Fee-Only Planner is someone who charges a fee for financial plan creation and advisory and does not receive any kind of commissions/incentives from mutual fund houses, insurers or other financial product sellers. Because he is in no way associated or represented by Mutual Fund Companies, Insurance Companies or any other form of the product. Hence, his only earning is from the fee he charges to his clients upfront.
A Fee-Based Planner receives a fee for financial advisory and also receives commissions from fund houses and/insurers etc. for the products he/she recommends. The investment is done through the planner. Hence, there is always the possibility of CONFLICT of interest when you work with such fee-based planners.
