Fear of Financial Advisors

February 24, 2016

Fear Graphic

We’ve all heard the poll results that the fear of public speaking often outranks many common fears, including the fear of death.  But what if I told you that many people have a fear of financial advisors?  Would you be surprised?  In this article, the author discusses the “rational” fear hypothesis against irrational fear generated by external sources.  I found this short read fascinating when compared to real risks often downplayed or ignored by media pundits. I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
