How do I choose my SmartVestor Pro?

What can a SmartVestor Pro help me with?
A SmartVestor Pro will show you how to make the most of your investments and help you create a plan to reach your retirement goals. And when the going gets rough—think stock market swings—they’ll be the voice of reason that calms your nerves.
Should I start investing?
We recommend you start investing after you’re out of debt and after you’ve saved 3–6 months of expenses in an emergency fund.
Are SmartVestor Pros financial advisors?
All of our Pros are investing professionals, but not all are financial advisors (many are). The difference? An investing professional focuses solely on helping you invest, whereas a financial advisor helps you with all types of financial planning, not just investing.
