My name is Harry Sit. I’m a personal finance enthusiast. I have been sharing my knowledge and experience in personal finance on my blog The Finance Buff for over 10 years. Over 1 million people visited my blog last year. I wrote Chapter 5 of the book The Bogleheads’ Guide to Retirement Planning (Wiley, 2009). My book on inflation-indexed bonds Explore TIPS received a 5-star review from Professor Zvi Bodie, whose textbook Investments (nicknamed BKM) is a standard issue in top MBA programs across the U.S.
I started this website to help people find Advice-Only financial advisors because readers of my blog told me they wanted Advice-Only but they couldn’t find such advisors. Since nobody else is making it easier, I had to do it. In two years I helped close to 200 people all over the U.S. find Advice-Only financial advisors. My work was mentioned in Forbes, MarketWatch, and USA Today.
I hope Advice-Only will become the default choice when people look for financial advisors, similar to how index funds became the default choice in investing. Commission sales and fee-only at the “standard 1%” have become outdated and vastly overpriced. The time for Advice-Only has come.
