Hi dear RIP friends, last week I completed the 3 post series on “trolling a financial advisor”.
The “season finale” was about how not to fall for an Insurance Policy Pillar 3A, and how to identify snake oil salesman tactics.
Today I’m going to show you better alternatives available for your Pillar 3A, and I’m also going to tell you what I’ve done with my and my wife’s Pillar 3As.
Before we even start: I’m not going to tell you yet another time what’s a Pillar 3A, I assume you know about it. This post is probably only useful for Swiss residents, so if you’re not living and, more importantly, paying taxes in Switzerland see you on Monday January 4th, 2021 for the first MLJ 😉
Hi RIP Friends,
This is the third and last post in a short three posts series about my experience with a Financial Advisor.
Your can read first post here, where I explained how I was cold contacted by her assistant on LinkedIn, and what happened during our first 1h-long video call.
You can also read the second post here, where I analyzed the two Structured Notes that she thought would have been the perfect investments for a risk averse person like “me”.
In this third post we’ll take a look at her final weapon: a Pillar 3A/B with a linked Insurance Policy.
Hi RIP Friends,
This is the second post in a short three posts series about my experience with a Financial Advisor. Your can read first post here, where I explained how I was cold contacted on LinkedIn, and what happened during our first 1h-long video call.
The Advisor sent two Structured Notes factsheets to me few weeks after our call.
I won’t tell you much about my conversation with the Advisor like I did in the previous post, it wasn’t a deep conversation. I showed my perplexities to the Advisor in our follow-up meeting and she quickly moved on trying to sell my the next crappy product, the Insurance Policy Pillar 3A/B that we’ll see in next chapter.
I kind of regret having been so direct with her in this second meeting. I would have loved to see the Prospect documents, shame on me for not having gone for it. This post would have been much richer if I had gone close to sign a concrete proposal.
Anyway, I how you enjoy this deep analysis of the Structured Products I’ve ben offered.
Have fun, and let’s get started! 🙂
Hi RIP readers, welcome to the LAST RIP (Bi)Weekly Learning Journal.
Yeah, I know… all the good things must come to an end, live with that!
I’m killing (B)WLJ…
Hi RIP friends,
I got contacted by a financial advisor via LinkedIn out of the blue three months ago. We interacted for a while, and I’m now ready to share this experience with you: the why, the how, and the what (crappy products) they tried to sell me.
To keep things manageable I’ve split this post in three parts. In the first part (this post) I’ll show you their approach, their analysis of my finances, and their marketing tactics. In the Second part we will take a closer look at the first crappy products (Structured Notes) they wanted to sell me. In the third and final part we will destroy the second crappy product (an Insurance based Pillar 3A-3B) they wanted to sell me.
