Stay Informed to Stay Ahead: Review and Save All Documents Provided to You

By Patricia Uceda, Spring 2014 Student Intern

If you’ve been with us all week, you’ve learned four tips on monitoring your investments.  For our final tip, make sure you are saving all of the documents provided to you by your financial adviser including monthly statements and trade confirmations. You should be receiving this information on a regular basis, and if you are not, that could be a sign of trouble. In addition to assisting you with annual portfolio reviews, it is very important to review these documents as you receive them to verify that they are accurate. If investments that you did not authorize appear on your confirmations or account statements, contact your adviser at once.
