Other than Free TurboTax software and estate attorney advice, what are the perks of the Fidelity Private Client group?
Has a Fidelity FA ever given you advice without selling you a management service? I would like to have a yearly portfolio check-up conversation, but as a Boglehead investor, I’m not sure if it’s the right move.
My advisor is very helpful. Never pushed anything. Gives me good advice, such as Roth conversions while tax rates are low for now.
