I'm one of those who doesn't have a great deal of time for F/A's
I have a few friends who are F/A's and frankly there is only one of 3 who's advice I value.
I find most F/A's are hog tied by their dealer principal--they are no more than a glorified Managed Fund sales manager.
We have had lots of threads saying similar.
But what are the types of things you'd "Like" to know.
The sort of questions you think an F/A should be able to answer.
Not that your looking for an answer here!
Over the years mine have been---
When will I know its a good time to purchase Industrial Real estate?
What is the most effective way to develop for maximum return.
How is it best I structure my own Industrial property in my SMSF (Accounting Firm sorted that--F/A had blank look)
What are your thoughts on hedging my SMSF portfolio--what would you suggest.
What are your hints on risk management with regards to the market post GFC?
How much do I need to retire on and what is my best structure going forward (I'm at that age).
How do you see investment in commodities like gold and silver etc going forward and why good or bad.
If we have a prolonged period of stagnation what is your advice?
If we enter into an inflationary period what should I look for and how do I protect cash?
Just to mention a few.
Many Ive found answers myself through other means---but
Im interested in the questions others find F/As's fall short on answering.
I figure all should be capably answered by someone who's profession is Financial Advice.
I find generic questions their speciality---nitty gritty what its all about (in my view) questions draw a blank more often than not!
I've also started another thread in which I would welcome opinions and hope others may ask financial questions there looking for opinion as well.
