    Question How to Hire an Advisor for Investments

    My question involves personal finance in the State of: NYC

    Dear all,
    I have a little question. I am from Nassau, Bahamas, new here. And I would like to hire an advisor...

    I don't know if there is a list of the official advisors or not in NY. In Bahamas, the government publish a list of registrant allowed to be financial advisor (or at least this is what they told me ; http://www.scb.gov.bs/documents/Firm...ber%202018.pdf here is the last one).
    Does an advisor company have to be in that list (or similar one depending of the state) to be genuine ?
    Sorry if this is not the right place to ask or if this question looks stupid...

    Depending on what it is exactly that the advisor will do for you he or she may have to be licensed or registered under either federal or NY law if they are in NY or offering services to NY residents. So the title "advisor" doesn't mean much; it is the particular duties that the person will do that matters.

    Further, we can't advise you on how to find investment advisors in the Bahamas.
    In the US, you can start at FINRA's BrokerCheck https://brokercheck.finra.org/
