Paladin Registry Completed a Background Check for Charlotte Dougherty

By: Paladin Registry
Cincinnati, OH, November, 2010. Investors make a major mistake when their only source of information for financial advisor credentials, ethics, and business practices is advisors who want to sell them investment products and services. This is a risky way to select advisors who may:
• Omit, misrepresent, or exaggerate information to make the sale
• Be unlicensed or sell unregistered investment products (scams)
• Have a history of investor complaints, fines, and suspensions
There is a solution. Investors can use Paladin Registry’s Financial Advisor Due Diligence (FADD™) service to conduct background checks. FADD™ validates the accuracy of advisor claims so investors select professionals with the best qualifications and not the best sales pitches.
Background checks are an essential step when investors select advisors who will influence or control their financial decisions.
