Episode 93: Understanding an Advisor’s ADV Part 2 brochure to evaluate how an advisor may work with you – Part 2.

Alex and Ryan continue to discuss McLean’s ADV Part 2. It is the SEC-mandated document that an advisor provides to prospects and to existing clients at least once a year. The ADV Part 2 serves as your user manual for working with your advisor. We use McLean’s ADV to serve as a baseline for these episodes. In this episode, we discuss: 

  • The types of clients your advisor serves (and whether you fit in).
  • How to analyze the advisor’s stated method of analysis, investment strategy, and potential for loss.
  • How to assess if your advisor has had previous securities violations and disciplinary actions.
  • The listing of areas where potential conflicts of interest may exist and to what degree.
