Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:
A financial broker is someone who helps clients buy or sell financial products. They work with various financial institutions to get the best deal for their clients. Financial brokers can provide a wide range of services, including investment advice, insurance products and mortgage financing.
A financial planner is someone who helps clients create long-term financial plans. They will consider their current financial situation, goals, and risk tolerance to develop a plan that outlines how they can work to achieve their financial goals. Financial planners can also provide investment, retirement and estate planning advice.
Pahut said, “While financial brokers and financial planners can provide valuable services, there are some key differences you should be aware of. One of the most important differences is that financial planners are fiduciaries. This means they are legally bound to act in your best interests, which aligns their incentives with yours and helps ensure they provide personalized advice. Financial brokers, on the other hand, are not trustees. Trustees must adhere to a strict code of ethics. This helps to ensure that they provide high quality services.
Pahut says: “For more than 25 years, I have been helping my clients solve their financial problems and develop sound strategies by focusing on the specific needs of each one. My practice is founded on a commitment to my clients to follow a refined process, as I believe this is the foundation of a successful, long-term relationship. I work with qualified individuals, families and businesses to provide integrated wealth management and planning services. Integrity, personalized advice, attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to the well-being of my clients are the hallmarks of my service process.
