Experience and longevity in the business are both important - many people don't realize that many financial advisors have less than five years in the business. A varied, extensive and up-to-date educational background is also a key factor. You want to be confident that your advisor is fully trained in all aspects of investment advice. Personality should play a big role as well. Your advisor must have the flexibility to meet your changing needs, and you should feel very comfortable with your partner (feeling free to be frank about your financial goals and/or limits). Frequency of client contact is another important factor. Many people's complaints about their existing advisor include that they rarely hear from them, that they would like to be given more attention and that they have begun to feel unimportant in the process.
