How Do I Double My Money? Working With a Financial Management Expert

If you've found yourself wondering, "How do I double my money?" and are seeking a relatively secure way to do that but simply don't know where to begin, consider choosing and working with a financial management expert. There are few tasks as cumbersome to many as managing finances and exploring investment options should be done by someone with a professional eye. If you lack the knowledge, then consulting an expert will be time and money well spent
After deciding to consult a professional, you must take some basic preliminary steps to deciding on which financial manager or money manager to work with. First, decide exactly the type of help you are looking for in the professional that you hire. Some people need help with budgeting and saving, others are seeking only investment advice and many really need both. Your search should be directed by what you are hoping to gain from the consultation. The key to getting what you want is to clearly articulate these needs by writing them down in a prioritized fashion. If you write your needs and goals down, you are much more likely to actually work to achieve them.

After determining your needs, don't be afraid of asking friends and family for individuals they have successfully worked with. Be sure to ask what they liked and didn't like about working with the professional to see if they will be a good fit for you as well. Also, ask for "negative referrals." Another explanation is a list of professionals to avoid no matter what.

After you have a list of 3-5 candidates, request to meet them and if necessary, do an interview. Go into that meeting or interview with a list of topics and/ or questions in hand. You will want to first relay what it is you hope to accomplish by working with them. Above all of the skills, knowledge, reputation, abilities, connections and professional accomplishments the individuals may have, you must be able to work with this person and relate to them. If they don't understand you and what is important to you, then working together won't be as productive as it possibly could be.

Once you have narrowed down your candidates to one or two, be sure to conduct a background check with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA.) You can request a report on FINRA's broker check web page, which will show any marks against a financial manager's background or reputation.

If you're still undecided, you can interview other staff, who can likely give you much better insight as to what drives the manager as a person. This can often speak volumes of their character and how you will work together in the future.

Other points that can be weighed into your decision are length of time in the field, performance over the long term (5-10 year range) and their risk tolerance.

If all else fails, go with your gut. Most people are naturally good judges of character. If you don't trust yourself to make that call, bring along a friend or family member whose opinion you value and trust.

Hiring a financial management professional can take time, but the process of getting there can be very valuable in helping you figure out how you will double your money. Take the time to do research and interviews and you'll find working with a professional to manage your money and future wealth to be time well spent.
