Why should my financial health be any different than my physical

It seems reasonable to expect a good financial adviser to take the time
to understand my unique circumstances, goals, resources and comfort

and companies who are already acting with integrity and transparency.
The only people and organizations who will be hurt are those who rely
on dishonest and deceitful business practices.  Is that who you want to
go on record as supporting?
