This last year has left many people afraid to go to the mailbox especially if they think there might be a financial statement inside. And while the ups and downs of the market seems like a bad amusement park ride -not being able to find the person controlling the park is even worse.
In my opinion the big thing that this year has taught us is that having a good financial consultant means having someone who will talk to you when times are not great. Because let's face it - when you are upset (especially about money) you want to pick up the phone and talk to someone. And if those people won't take your calls - or can't give you good answers to tough questions it is definitely time to look around for another investment advisor.
I have been with FBT Investments for over 5 years and can say that through everything that has gone on -they have been out in front and proactively managing my account. They have always taken the time to answer all of my questions and concerns and have been very honest and forthcoming at every opportunity.
Now on the other hand I've talked to enough people to know this isn't always the case. Like the mortgage lender who won't return your call when the loan is denied - many people have been looking for help and been unable to get it. So if you find yourself in this situation and are looking for financial advice in New Orleans, I recommend talking to FBT Investments and find an advisor who will be there for you no matter what.
