According to FINRA, there are 43 types of investment licenses and 214 designations. Although financial advisors should be transparent professionals always looking out for their client's best interests at all times, several misrepresent their credentials, use phony titles, and misstate facts just to sell investment products. Some aren’t properly licensed, and others hide secrets that can be costly to your clients.
