Personal Financial Advisors

We touched on financial planners in the previous section, but now let’s deep-dive into this recession-proof career. This is another career, similar to insurance agents, that flourishes in both up and down cycles. When the economy is roaring along, people expect financial advisors to maximize return on investment. When economic clouds appear, financial advisors help clients protect wealth and minimize stock market losses. The primary job of a financial advisor is to assess the financial needs of a client and to help manage an investment portfolio on behalf of the client.
