We are looking for anecdotal stories from consumers who followed the advice of their financial advisor and were able to send their kid to Harvard
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 8, 2009
AdvisorCheck, a free online service that provides consumers with thorough background checks on financial advisors and insurance agents, has announced an online contest for consumers and financial advisors to share their best and worst stories on investing and advisor/client relationships for an opportunity to win a 42" Flat Panel High Definition TV.
AdvisorCheck is looking for information on what made the experience with an advisor or consumer good or bad, if it has a positive or negative affect on a portfolio and if it resulted in a good or bad investment.
"We are looking for anecdotal stories from consumers who followed the advice of their financial advisor and were able to send their kid to Harvard," said Bryan Binkholder, national spokesperson for AdvisorCheck. "Or it may be a situation where an advisor developed a retirement plan for a consumer allowing them to retire early."
Binkholder also expects negative stories to be submitted. "Since we launched AdvisorCheck, we have heard many stories on investments that have gone bad, but we realize there are also some really great success stories, and we want to share those also," Binkholder said.
Entries for the contest must be submitted by September 30, 2009 and be entered through the AdvisorCheck website at http://www.advisorbackgroundcheck.com. Samples of stories will be shared on the AdvisorCheck website, however names of advisors or consumers will not be released to maintain confidentiality. Winners of the TV will be announced by October 23, 2009.
