When you hear us talk about truly putting our client's best interests first and advising clients the right way, we want you to know it's not just cheap talk. Aside from believing in completely transparent relationships, aside from being anti-commissions, aside from dropping the licenses that allow us to charge commissions, one of Action Point's Founding Partners and Senior Financial Advisor, Ben VerWys has been admitted to the Paladin Registry. According to Jack Waymire, Founder of The Paladin Registry and author of Who's Watching Your Money?, Paladin, is "the only online service that vets and rates the quality of financial planners and advisors. We ask the right questions so investors don't have to. And we know the critical differences between good answers (benefit investors) and bad ones (damage investors)."
Paladin uses an objective research process to determine who is profiled in the Registry. Advisors must be willing to practice full transparency. They cannot withhold information that may cause investors to reject them. Next, they must complete Paladin’s rigorous due diligence process that focuses on their expertise and ethics. And lastly, they must also score in the 90th percentile or higher when Paladin’s proprietary algorithm rates the quality of their credentials, ethics, business practices, and services.
