Good financial advice is worth paying for. But do we know how much it costs and how do we know we are getting good advice? For years advice was wrapped up into sales commission, creating the impression of “free advice” along with a general distrust in the process. But the industry is changing with the separation of sales and advice fees.

In this podcast, Maya Fisher-French speaks to Rory Brachner, founder of DoshGuide, and financial planner Marc Sydow about a further evolution where financial planners no longer charge for assets under management, but are paid for actual work done
