A while back, the tea party leaders thought they had finally gotten rid of the Billionaire Hungarian-American stocks and equities investor. Those thoughts were however quickly obliterated when Soros decided he’d finally stomached enough intolerance from the likes of Donald Trump and his entire entourage.

The role of a financial advisor is a highly important one in the lives of retired people and in the lives of individuals that have a few years until they can retire. According to Dave Giertz – a business leader of a financial institution – Social Security can make up as much as 40% of a retired person’s income.

The results say that their financial advisors do not communicate with them enough.
