What are my choices in the stock market because everything I look at seems to be the same? Hurley Investments Client
Everything is the same from a broker, registered investment advisor to a financial planner
The put you in to a financial planning software answer is 60 equities 40 bonds
Then they all invest your money and in their minds the job is done.
When it doesn’t work what is their answer? = DON’T worry your invested for the long term
You guys made a choice to do something different!!!!
