Markets are increasingly volatile and many investors are more risk averse. But they also may need more guidance.
Financial security trumps investment growth as the most important goal for many investors. Who should you turn to for help in achieving that goal? Securities broker? Investment adviser? Insurance agent?
Finding the right financial professional requires you to focus on your short-term financial needs and long-term financial goals. There is no cookie-cutter approach.

The ability to shape shift is a particular gift of Republican candidate Willard Mitt Romney. He has even given up his first name. Not in favor of something better or more endearing or more familiar - or even more reflective of whom his is or wants to be. Mitt is just somewhat better than Willard.
