Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2004 -
Â Paladin Investor Resources, LLC today launched a new web site (http://www.PaladinInvestors.com) aimed at helping investors find, select, monitor, and replace financial advisors. Paladin is an independent organization that receives no compensation from advisors or their companies, accepts no outside advertising, sells no financial products, services, or advice, and has no conflicts of interest. PaladinInvestors.com is the first website that offers advisor monitoring services to investors, and the only nonbiased site where investors can go to find an advisor and learn how to avoid Wall StreetÂs schemes and scams.
PaladinInvestors.com offers a range of information and services for investors. The charter membership rate of $52/year includes online access to:
Â Advisor Evaluation Tool Kits: Tools walk investors through the due diligence process so they can select competent, trustworthy advisors. Each tool kit provides a step-by-step process for selecting advisors.
Â Performance Monitoring Service: A quarterly performance evaluation service helps investors monitor their advisors. Monitoring is an early warning system that returns are lagging and financial goals are in jeopardy.
Â Schemes & Scams: Summaries of schemes and scams along with Paladin comments help members avoid costly mistakes.
Â The Paladin Learning Center: Quick study programs, case studies, white papers, FAQs, TIPs, Hall of Fame and Hall of Shame, and investment terminology provide ongoing investor education.
ÂThis is the first service of its kind to protect investors with smaller asset amounts from Wall Street scams and bad advisors,Â said Jack Waymire, Paladin's President and author of WhoÂs Watching Your Money? The 17 Paladin Principles for Selecting a Financial Advisor (Wiley, 2003). ÂFor the first time, there is a solution for the smaller investor.Â
According to Waymire, ÂSelecting quality advisors is a much-needed solution in this scandalous financial climate, where many advisors are no more than wolves in Armani suitsÂ skilled salespeople who present themselves as experts to trusting investors who understandably canÂt tell the difference between experts and charlatans dispensing bad advice. And what does bad advice have to do with the 65% of Baby Boomers who canÂt afford to retire? Bad adviceÂwhich could be the difference between cat food and caviar for many investorsÂhas destroyed the retirement dreams of millions of Americans.Â
ÂNot every advisor is badÂ just seventy-five percent of them,Â continued Waymire. ÂI started PaladinInvestors.com because I truly believe that educated investors are Wall Street's worst nightmare. Educated investors know how to protect their financial futures by avoiding bad advisors, bad products, and bad advice Â all things that increase Wall Street profits.Â
