Waymire went on to say, “The Registry’s most popular service solves the quality problem by pre-screening and rating advisor qualifications for investors. Our ratings are based on advisor responses to 48 questions about their credentials, ethics, business practices, and services. They must score 90 or higher to receive our five star quality rating.”
Advisor selection risk exists because the financial services industry has no minimum education or experience requirements and no mandatory disclosure requirements for advisors. This means a person could be selling cars in January and mutual funds in February and this information does not have to be disclosed to investors. This lack of minimum standards transfers 100% of the risk of selecting the wrong advisors to investors. Paladin services are designed to help investors minimize this risk and select advisors based on an objective review of their qualifications and trustworthiness.”
