Fear of Financial Advisors

by Syverson Strege Commentary | 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.
