Outsider knows how often financial planners get the rough end of the pineapple when blame is being shoved around, and so he has a modicum of sympathy for a certain US financial planner who has the misfortune to have a name similar to an appointee of US president, Donald Trump.
While it is unlikely that “independent, fee-only Certified Financial Planner and, CPA, George Papadopoulos” has had to weather storms such as the Future of Financial Advice and the Life Insurance Framework he has, apparently, had to cope with the slings and arrows of a Trump presidency.
Thus, there was George making it very clear to his 10,700 twitter followers and anyone else who chose to look that while he might deliver sound financial advice to his clients, he is not an adviser to Trump.
“For the nth time, I am NOT Trump’s foreign policy adviser. I have NO association with the Trump camp! NONE!”
Outsider reckons there are plenty of planners in Australia who will sympathise with George. They know what it’s like to be tarred with someone else’s brush.
