A good financial adviser?

accounting ledgerFred asks:

Any recommendations for a good financial adviser in the Capital Region?

Of course, you want to find someone who's good at the financial side of things (otherwise, what's the point) -- but it's also important that you feel like you can communicate effectively with that person.

So, got a suggestion for Fred? Please share! And please include why you like the financial adviser you're suggesting.

Eric Benson at Waddell & Reed is great. Not only have my accounts with him made money every year I was with him, he is great with discussing all of my options and planning for the future.

Kevin Regan at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in Albany (518) 462-8350. He's always available when you have questions and makes you feel confidant about your financial decisions.

Michael DePerto @ Captail Financial Planning, good guy and is very straight forward with you.


Kathleen Godfrey of Godfrey Financial has been a godsend over the years. Knowledgeable, smart, and most of all, local.
